"In many ways, this new acquisition is indeed a major milestone for Dubal. The new Alstom 125MW, which was commissioned by us during the summer of 2004, comprises two GE Frame 9 gas turbines and two CMI heat recovery steam generators. The gas turbines have specially built in combustion equipment which limit the production of atmospheric pollutants to well below accepted international standards," said Mossa Ismael, General Manager, Power and Desalination, Dubal.

The spring of 2005 will witness the culmination of Dubal's ambitious $16 million programme to retrofit its existing technology and implement uprates on its existing gas turbines.

This combustion technology will guarantee that Dubal produces considerably less oxides in its smelting operations, whilst improving on turbine output, by as much as 6 per cent.
