Alstom has won a contract worth approximately EUR70 million about (US93 million) for the supply of equipment to the new Guanyinyan hydroelectric project in China.
The contract, awarded to Alstom by the Datang Guanyinyan Hydropower Development Co. Ltd, involves the supply of three 600-MW Francis turbine generator units to the new Guanyinyan hydropower station on the Jinsha River in Yunnan province. The first unit is due to enter commercial operation in 2014.
Datang Guanyinyan Hydropower Development Co. Ltd is a member of the China Datang Corporation, one of China's top five power generation groups. This is Alstom's second contract with the company following the PengShui hydropower project in 2004, for which Alstom supplied five 350-MW Francis turbine generator units.
Recently, Alstom announced it has signed strategic agreements with major Russian energy companies to jointly provide power generation products and services for Russia's power industry in the fields of hydropower generation, thermal power generation, nuclear power generation and electricity transmission.
