New Delhi: Alstom Projects India, a unit of the French engineering firm, on Thursday said it has bagged two orders worth Rs592 crore from Uganda and the United Arab Emirates.
The company has secured a Rs350 crore contract to set up a 255 MW hydro electric power station at Jinja, Uganda. It has also received a Rs242 crore order for supply of equipment to Fujairah Independent Water and Power Plant in UAE.
The order for supply of turbines for the 5x51 MW Bujagali Hydro Electric Power Station in Uganda was awarded by Salini to Alstom Group, the company said in a statement.
The scope of work for this project includes supply and commissioning of turbine, generator, balance of plant and hydro mechanical equipment.
Alstom would be responsible for supplying five heat recovery steam generators for Fujairah Independent Water and Power Plant, one of the worlds largest desalination plants, it said.
“APIL will complete the design, engineering and supply of the heat recovery steam generator order by June 2009 and the hydro order by June 2011,” said Emmanuel Colombier, managing director and vice-chairman, APIL.
The equipment would be manufactured at APIL’s hydro facility at Vadodara.
