AAlstom SA ansd DCNS Team Up in Floating Wind Energy Field
Oct 13 14
The renewable energy unit of Alstom SA and the marine energy and infrastructure division of naval shipbuilder DCNS entered into a partnership agreement with regard to the project called SEA REED. The goal of the alliance is to be able to manufacture by 2017 a 6-MW machine combining Alstom's Haliade 150 offshore wind turbine and a semi-submersible floating system developed by DCNS. As part of the collaboration, Alstom will conduct studies to adapt and integrate the Haliade platform with the floating system. At the same time, DCNS will look into the behaviour, sizing, industrialisation and installation of the machine. The scheme is backed by EUR 6 million (USD 7.6 million) in funds from the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME). The financing is being provided to cover the initial study and certification phase.
Alstom Signs Contracts to Supply EBoP Systems to Voltalia Energia
Oct 9 14
Alstom SA has signed two contracts worth EUR 14 million to supply Electrical Balance of Plant, or EBoP, systems to Voltalia Energia do Brasil, a producer of electricity. The systems will connect two wind farm complexes in the northeast of Brazil, Sao Miguel do Gostoso and Vila Amazonas, to the transmission grid, and inject approximately 201 MW of wind power into the Brazilian grid network. Alstom's full turnkey scope includes medium and high voltage systems (equipment and services). Alstom will be responsible for the construction of the system that collects energy from each wind turbine, the step up substation, transmission line and connecting bays to the grid. High voltage equipment will be manufactured locally in Alstom's plants, Itajuba and Canoas, in Brazil.
Alstom Signs EUR 14 Million Deal for 201 MW Brazil Grid Connection
Oct 8 14
Alstom signed a EUR 14 million deal to connect 201 MW of wind power to Brazil's electricity grid. It would deliver two turnkey electrical balance of plant systems for the SAo Miguel do Gostoso and Vila Amazonas wind complexes, belonging to Voltalia Energia do Brasil. High voltage equipment for the project will be manufactured at Alstom's local ItajubÃ¡ and Canoas plants. The SAo Miguel do Gostoso complex, which is in Rio Grande do Norte state, is scheduled to begin operating in March, with an installed capacity of 108MW. Vila Amazonas, in CearÃ¡ state, is expected to start generation in 2016, with 93MW of installed capacity.
Alstom S.A. Wins EUR 70 Million Contract to Supply ATLAS 200 Equipment to SNCB-NMBS
Oct 7 14
Alstom S.A. has received a contract worth EUR 70 million to supply ATLAS 200 on-board signaling equipment to SNCB-NMBS for 449 trains in commercial service in 2016. The contract covers the design, manufacture, testing and approval of equipment for five different types of train, together with the supply and maintenance of these on-board signaling systems over a ten-year period. The equipment will be fitted to the trains by SNCB-NMBS. The ATLAS 200 ERTMS level 2 solution chosen complies with the most recent Technical Specifications for Interoperability. Atlas 200 offers integrated control over level crossings, standardised braking models that can be varied according to ground conditions and the limited supervision protection mode. The solution is currently being deployed by Alstom in Denmark, Germany, Austria and Australia. This is Alstom's fifth contract to supply ETCS level 2 equipment compliant with Baseline 3. The decision to apply this standard now, which will be the only one authorized in a few years, gives rail operators the major benefit of avoiding migration operations.
