Alstom has won a contract to build a turnkey 885MW GT26-based combined-cycle power plant with Centrica Langage at Langage, Devon, in the South West of England.
Alstom will design, supply, install and commission the entire power plant, including the site preparation, civil works and the testing of the plant, and will supply two GT26-gas turbines, one heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), a single steam turbine and a large air-cooled condenser.
The company will also provide maintenance and operation support to Langage for an initial 12-year period under a long-term service agreement.
The power plant will meet stringent environmental criteria and be considerably smaller in size, height and area than similar plants.
The South West region of the UK has little existing generation capacity and the new plant will reduce the need to import power from the rest of the country and hence reduce transmission costs.
The plant is scheduled to be commercially operating during winter 2008/2009. It is the first large scale project to be built in the UK in five years.
