DF SERVICES, through its companies DF Mompresa and Turbogeneradores del Peru, has signed a new contract for 33 million Euros together with Siemens for construction of the final phase of the Santo Domingo combined cycle power station in Peru. The heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and steam turbine will increase the plant’s 201.5 MW power output by 100 MW.
With this new contract the group has reinforced its position in the market in Peru, where DF has delivered more than 15 electricity generation projects and has installed over 2.5 GW.
DF has been associated with the country’s three largest power plants - Kallpa, Chilca and Ventanilla – and is executing the Chilca Plus turnkey project, a 110 MW combined cycle plant which is estimated to start working in the second half of 2016.
Meantime, the DF Mining & Handling business division has won a contract for bulk handling equipment at a new iron and steel complex in Bellara, Algeria, after reaching an agreement with Algerie Qatar Steel (AQS).
The purpose of the project is to supply local demand for finished products and the plan is to reach annual production of 2 million tonnes of steel. DF will deliver the project as a turnkey contract, including the engineering, procurement, manufacturing, construction and commissioning of the equipment necessary for the bulk handling package.
The estimated budget is US$109.4 million, which will cover two different parts. Firstly, terminal facilities at Djen Djen port for the reception of 3.5 million tonnes of iron ore pellets annually; and the equipment for pellet storage before being sent to the direct reduction plant within the new iron and steel complex at Bellara. The equipment will include ore unloading gantries, conveyor belts, stackers and reclaimers, train loading and unloading docks, and service equipment to support these facilities.
