Alstom has signed a EUR950m contract with Narva Elektrijaamad to supply two 300MW units for a fossil fuel power plant based on Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) boiler technology in Estonia.

This agreement includes a first unit of 300MW for an amount of EUR540m and an option for a second unit of 300MW for EUR410m, which can be exercised by the customer within the next 18 months.

As per the agreement, 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.

The fossil fuel power plant, located in Narva, will be fueled with local oil shale.

Alstom claims that the new power plant will supply an important part of the country’s electricity consumption and ensure Estonia’s compliance with the European Union Large Combustion Plant Directive (EU LCPD) emissions directive by substantially reducing emissions.
