Pin It

Ansaldo Energia, a Finmeccanica company and leading supplier of components and services for power generation plants has won two large international orders worth a total of over EUR 75 million. Following a tender that saw the participation, among others, of Japanese company Marubeni with Alstom equipment, Ansaldo Energia, together with Korean company Doosan as the
main contractor and Suez Energy, was awarded the contract to supply three combined cycleì gas turbines for power generation and water desalination in Barka (phase 2). This represents a continuation of operations in Oman for the Genoa-based company, which is alreadyinvolved in phase 1 via Enelpower.

The order involves the supply, assembly assistance and launch of three 166 MW ISO-ratedV94.2 gas turbines. The contract is for a special “fast track” project requiring the turbines to be delivered in a very tight timescale in July and August 2007. Ansaldo Energia has also won fresh business in India, following a successful bid to supply a64.3A gas turbine and related alternator for a 95 MW combined cycle plant in Valuthur, Tamil Nadu. The company—suppliers of GEA Energy System (India)—succeeded in fending off competition from a local company with General Electric equipment.

These results, worth a total of over EUR 75 million, raise the profile of Ansaldo Energia as an international supplier, and help consolidate the perception of Finmeccanica as a company with its own technological resources, which is capable of achieving success even in fiercely competitive markets.ica, in grado di raggiungere successi anche su mercati fortemente competitivi.
