FORTUM SERVICE WINS A SIGNIFICANT O&M AGREEMENT FROM GERMANY

Fortum Service has signed a 15-year operation and maintenance agreement with Trianel Energie of Germany. The agreement covers the 800 MW combined cycle gas turbine power plant in Hamm-Uentrop, Germany. The mobilisation phase of the contract will start in September 2006.

 

The combined cycle gas turbine power plant represents state-of-the-art technology and will be ready for commercial use in September 2007.

 

Trianel Energie is owned by 28 German, Austrian and Dutch regional power companies.

 

”Service won the deal in a tough international bidding race. Our merits were our long-term references in operating and maintaining combined cycle gas turbine plants, experience with similar types of plants, as well as our competitive, customer-specific concept”, explains Osmo Lähelmä from Fortum Service.
