Kestral power award soon

11 November 2002

Bids are under evaluation for the contract to expand the Dubai Aluminium (Dubal) power station as part of the Kestral programme. The bidders include GE Power Systemsof the US, France's Alstom Power and Germany's Siemens. The UK's Mott MacDonald, which is acting as consultant, has submitted its recommendations to the client and an award is expected in December.

The project will add between 300-350 MW in combined cycle power to Dubal's existing installed capacity. Prices have been based on a number of variations covering the installation of two 100-150-MW gas turbines, a steam turbine and associated heat recovery boilers.

The Kestral project involves the construction of a fifth potline that will add 155,000 tonnes a year (t/y) of aluminium to Dubal's existing output of 536,000 t/y. Dubal has already awarded a series of contracts on the project (MEED 24:5:02).
