Alstom signs €950m contract for new power plant in Estonia
Alstom, the French power engineering company, has signed a €950m contract with Narva Elektrijaamad AS, a subsidiary of Estonia’s state-owned utility Eesti Energia, to supply two 300MW units for a fossil fuel power plant based on circulating fluidised bed boiler technology in Estonia. The power plant, located in Narva, will be fuelled with local oil shale. The agreement includes a first unit of 300MW for an amount of €540m and an option for a second unit of 300MW for €410m, which could be exercised by the customer within the next 18 months. The new power plant will ensure the country’s compliance with the EU LCPD emissions directive by substantially reducing emissions.
Under the terms of the contract, Alstom will design, manufacture, supply, install, test and commission the units. This includes the supply of final fuel handling, CFB boiler, steam turbine, flue gas treatment, automation & control systems and electrical systems for each unit.
Alstom has previously supplied enhanced dust removal systems (electrostatic precipitators) to Eesti Energia and performed three low-pressure (LP) turbine retrofits at the Narva power plants. Alstom is currently supplying new desulphurisation systems for four 200 MW Narva units and has also a long term service agreement with Narva since the year 2000.
