French engineering firm Alstom has won a contract from the Nigerian government to supply a 160 MW gas turbine. The €40million (£35m) deal from Nigeria’s Ministry of Power sees Alstom add a second of its turbines to the Afam power plant.

The new turbine will bring Alstom’s power supply in the country to more than 20% of the total installed generation capacity in the former British colony.

Mark Coxon, Senior Vice President of Alstom’s Gas Business said, “Alstom is proud to be partnering with the Rivers State Government to build a highly reliable and efficient power plant in Nigeria and supporting the State in adding much needed generation capacity to fuel the country’s economic growth.”
