POWER GENERATION WASHINGTON GROUP MANAGES WPS PLANT CONSTRUCTION Washington Group International has won an assignment from Wisconsin Public Service Corp, a subsidiary of WPS Resources Corp, to manage the construction of the new 500 MW, coal-fired Weston Unit 4 that is to be built in central Wisconsin. The US$750 million electric generating unit, awaiting approval by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin, will use clean coal technologies, and will be located next to Weston Unit 3 on the existing power plant site in Marathon County, south of the city of Wausau. Construction is scheduled to start during 2004 and to be completed in late 2008.
WAPDA OPENS BIDS FOR HYDROPOWER PROJECT WAPDA, the Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority, has opened international engineering procuring and constructing tenders for the Golen Gol hydropower project. The proposed environment-friendly plant is to be located on Nullah Golen Gol, a tributary of River Mastuj, 25 km from Chitral in the northwest corner of Pakistan. The project, which includes a dam, and a 3810 m long tunnel, will have an installed power-generating capacity of 106 MW. Four international joint ventures, including local firms and companies from outside Pakistan, submitted their bids for completion, testing and commissioning of the project
on a turnkey basis. The contract will be awarded to the approved successful bidders after the bids have been evaluated. The project is expected to contribute 436 million units of low-cost electrical energy each year, at a generation cost of around Rs1.31 per unit. The capital cost of the project is estimated at over Rs7035 million.
ABB WINS CHINESE ORDER Power and automation technology group ABB has won a contract worth US$22 million from a consortium led by General Electric to deliver equipment for a hydroelectric power station which will improve the supply of electricity in part of eastern China. The equipment will be installed at the Yixing pumped storage power station in Jiangsu province. When completed during 2007, the power plant will strengthen the power supply in an area which suffers from severe power shortages because of growing demand. The project involves design work, manufacturing, testing, site management and the commissioning of equipment.
ALSTOM BUILDS POWER PLANT IN SAUDI ARABIA A consortium led by Alstom, including its civil partner Archirodon, has been selected by The Saudi Electricity Co for a project that will extend the Shoaiba Steam Power Plant, located south of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The entire project is worth 835 million. Alstom has already supplied this site with five 370 MW units, all of which are now in commercial
operation. Under this new contract, the company will design, supply and install three identical units covering the supply, installation and commissioning of boilers, steam turbines and generators. The contract also includes an option to build a further three units on the same site, which could be exercised within 12 months. This would make Shoaiba one of the largest power plants in the Middle East, with an output in excess of 4000 MW.
