Alstom to upgrade Darlington steam turbines

4 April 2013

Alstom has been chosen by Ontario Power Generation (OPG) to refurbish four steam turbine generator units at the 3512MW Darlington nuclear power plant in Ontario, Canada.

The contract is worth approximately EUR265 million ($340 million), Alstom said.

The first planned outage to start the work is scheduled for autumn 2016, with the entire project expected to be completed in late 2024. The work is part of the plan to extend the plant life through 2055.

Alstom, as the original equipment manufacturer of the Darlington steam turbine generators, has been providing technical support to the plants since they were commissioned in the early 1990s.
