Alstom has secured a contract worth €15m with NLSC consortium to supply steam turbine and generator for the 135MW Concepcion Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) power plant to be built in Philippines.

The NLSC consortium includes First Northeast Electric Power Engineering Corporation of China Energy Group (NEPC), Liaoning Electric Power Survey & Design Institute and Shenyang Electric Power Design Institute.

NLSC consortium is constructing the CFB coal-fired plant for Palm Concepcion Power (PCPC).

Under the contract, Alstom will provide one 135MW steam turbine, generator set and auxiliaries, including the water cooled condenser for the power plant.

PCPC’s CFB power plant will feed power into the Visayas Grid to address the growing demand for energy.

At present, Visayas Grid has a capacity of 1,700MW, which is 12% of the country’s power demand. The grid supports interconnected grids in Cebu, Negros, Panay, Leyte, Samar, and Bohol.

Alstom Power Asia Pacific Sales and Marketing senior vice president Wouter Van Wersch said the company is supplying its compact, cost effective, and reliable steam turbine for the project.

"This contract further strengthens our position in the Philippines," Wersch added.

The contract is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2015.
