Alstom wins contract to build Ghannouch plant

30 April 2008
France’s Alstom has won the contract to build a 400 MW combined-cycle power plant at Ghannouch, near Gabes on Tunisia’s southeast coast.

A consortium of Germany’s Siemens and Canada’s SNC Lavalin was the only other group to submit a bid for the project. The contract is worth TD360m ($312m).

The contract includes a 26-month engineering, procurement and construction phase and a renewable 10-year operation and maintenance period. The client is the state-owned Societe Tunisienne de l'Electricite et du Gaz.

Steg is also planning to launch a second project, identical to the one at Ghannouch, at Bizerte on the country’s north coast (MEED 30:1:08).
