Alstom to equip Maryland combined-cycle natural gas plant

Sponsored by

Alstom has signed a contract worth nearly $100 million to supply a steam tail package for Old Dominion Electric Cooperative's (ODEC) Wildcat Point Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP) in Cecil County, Maryland. It will generate about 1,000 MW, enough to power 390,000 homes.

The natural gas power plant is scheduled for commissioning in mid-2017.

Alstom's Steam Tail offering, combines two heat recovery steam generators and one steam turbine generator (STG) into one package for equipment performance optimization, higher efficiency, lower emissions, reduced costs and shorter delivery times.

The steam tail will provide Wildcat Point with all of its steam function needs. It is designed to work with the gas components at the plant, which will become one of the cleanest natural gas facilities in the state of Maryland.

The Wildcat Point facility will be ODEC's first combined-cycle power plant and the largest in terms of power output in their fleet. This new plant is a key part of ODEC's efforts to produce clean, affordable energy with natural gas. It is one of several combined cycle plants being commissioned in the Mid-Atlantic region over the next few years and will deliver power to the PJM Regional Transmission Organization (RTO).
