General Electric says wins order from Aluminium Bahrain
GE Power, a division of GE, announced an order from Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C., or Alba, for a turnkey combined-cycle power plant, including three GE HA gas turbines, "which will power the world's largest single-site smelter. This win marks the first order for GE H-Class turbines in the Gulf, as well as the first use of H-Class turbines by the aluminum smelting industry anywhere in the world. GE also marks two additional milestones for its Power Services business with this win - its multiyear agreement with Alba for a period of 16 years, which also represents the first MYA for HA gas turbines in the Gulf region." In addition to three HA gas turbines, the combined-cycle project order includes three A651 steam turbines, three heat recovery steam generators and other equipment.
