Alstom to Replace Darlington Nuclear Equipment

Alstom to Replace Darlington Nuclear EquipmentAlstom has won a US$346 million contract from Ontario Power  Generation to refurbish steam turbine generator units at its Darlington power station in Ontario, Canada.Alstom will refurbish four 900-megawatt steam turbine generator units, in conjunction with off-line equipment. The very first planned outage to get started the project is scheduled for the fall of 2016, Alstom said inside a statement. A few,512-megawatt plant is about 70 kilometers east of Toronto.

“The effort and upgrades connected with this contract will allow the apparatus to own for an additional pair many years,” OPG senior vice president of nuclear refurbishment Dietmar Reiner said inside a statement.

Alstom’s Thermal Service business offices in Ottawa and Burlington will manage the upgrade project, even though the company’s manufacturing facilities in Europe as well as the U.S will give the gear.

The project will be finished in late 2024.
