Under the deal, Alstom will deliver its GT13E2 gas turbine and associated generator that will add to the existing GT13E2 gas turbine generator at the same site, delivered by the company in 1995.

The plant, owned by Shenzhen Nantian Electric Power Company, is slated to be commissioned by 2013.

Alstom has also signed a long-term service agreement with Shenzhen Nantian, which entails three maintenance cycles for each gas turbine and includes the supply of six major inspection parts for both the new and existing gas turbine.
