Raytheon Engineers & Constructors and Westinghouse Electric Corporation, both of the US, have jointly won a contract worth $382 million to build a 450-MW power station in Port Qasim. The plant will be barge mounted and will use both steam and combustion turbines. The lump sum contract was awarded by the local WAK Orient Power & Light, which is developing the plant.

Raytheon will provide turnkey engineering, procurement and construction services.

Westinghouse will supply six 50-MW combustion turbines, three steam turbine generators, six heat recovery steam generators and a distributed control system.

The company will also supply operation and maintenance services for 12 years under a separate contract.
