Alstom will design and build a fully integrated plant and provide the main power plant components including two GT26 gas turbines and the associated equipment such as steam turbines, turbogenerators and heat recovery steam generators.

Owing to its advanced cycle gas turbine technology, Alstom said that the plant can maintain a high level of operational flexibility and efficiency.

Maus van Loon, CEO of Electrabel Nederland, said: Electrabel in The Netherlands is committed to a more sustainable energy supply, through effectively creating a balance between the preconditions: ‘clean, affordable and reliable’. Building this new gas-powered power plant near Lelystad, and replacing a less energy efficient one, is part of that effort.
