Alstom gains new contracts in Brazil

Alstom has signed two new contracts with Brazil that obligates Alstom to provide Bel Monte Complex with hydro mechanical equipment.

The first contract was awarded to Alstom at the ELM Consortium. Bardella, a consortium led by Alstom, will fulfill the second contract.

The project includes 10 provisional stop logs for the water intake at Pimental. It also calls for 18 provisional stop logs for draft tubes at Belo Monte. The project’s subcontractors will be Bardella and Industria Metaurgica e Mecanica da Amazonia (IMMA), making it a joint effort between Bardella and Alston.

Belo Monte, the fourth-largest hydroelectric power plant in the world, is intended to have an 11,233-megawatt capacity that will serve 60 million people located throughout 16 states as well as the Federal District. Experts estimate that it will take eight years before Belo Monte is finished.

“Alstom is honored to be part of the major hydroproject in Brazil,” Hydro Senior Vice President in Alstom’s Renewable Energies Jacques Hardelay said. “With this contract, the company reinforces its commitment to lead power technology and offer a renewable and clean energy source to the population.”
