(MENAFN) French power generation and transport conglomerate Alstom has won two contracts worth almost USD96 million from Mekta to deliver power generation equipment for key projects in Jordan, the company said in a press release.

Metka, a leading international contractor for large scale energy projects, is executing the Samra Electric Power Company in the kingdom.

The contract will include the supply of a GT13E2 gas turbine and associated spares for the new fast-track simple cycle power plant being constructed in the region of Zarqa.

The power plant, slated for completion in 2013, will add 146 MW to the Jordanian grid, bringing much needed generation capacity ahead of the peak summer months.

The second contract involves the supply of Alstom steam-tail add-on technology to convert the existing 285 MW Samra III simple cycle gas-fired plant to a combined cycle plant.

The 'add-on' of this technology will increase the power generation capacity of the unit by an additional 143 MW. The project will enter commercial operation in 2015.
