Award nears on Kureimat HRSG

27 January 2006
Egyptian Electricity Holding Company (EEHC) is expected to award by the end of January the estimated $50 million-60 million heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) package on the 750-MW Kureimat II combined cycle power plant, 90 kilometres south of Cairo. International companies are also preparing to submit bids soon for the project's gas turbine package.

Four companies - a consortium of Belgium's CMI and the Czech Republic's Skoda, France's Alstom, Italy's Ansaldo Energia and NEM of the Netherlands - last year submitted bids for the contract, which covers the supply and installation of HRSG equipment. It is understood that the CMI/Skoda team is the low bidder for the contract. The team in August won a similarly-sized HRSG package on the Talkha combined cycle power plant project at a price of about $55 million (MEED 26:8:05).

Bids are due to be submitted by the end of January for the package to supply and install two 250-MW gas turbines for Kureimat II. France's Alstom Power, Germany's Siemens and Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) are expected to bid for the contract. A single 250-MW steam turbine will be tendered separately.
