Slovak company wins Chilean power plant bid

POWER engineering company Slovenské Energetické Strojárne (SES) Tlmače has won a contract to supply a boiler block to a power plant in Chile.

The company will supply the boiler block for a coal-burning power plant to Spanish-Chilean company Endesa, the largest power-plant company in Chile. SES Tlmače will take part in the turn-key contract as part of the Maire-SES-Tecnimont international consortium, the Hospodárske Noviny daily wrote.

SES Tlmače's share of the contract is worth Sk3.4 billion (€102 million). The Slovak company will supply the boiler block with an output of 370 megawatts and accessories within next two years.

"Winning this contract is in line with the medium-term strategy the company set after a new owner joined the company last fall," SES Tlmače general director Martin Paštika told the SITA newswire. "South America is an area of interest for SES, and this success on the Chilean market would certainly support the company's activities in this region in a significant way."

This was the second Chilean project SES Tlmače has won in cooperation with the Italian company Maireengineering Torino in less than a month.

In late June, the companies won a contract to supply a power plant block with an output of 370 MW for Colbún, the second-largest power plant company in Chile. The Slovak company's share of this contract is about Sk3.2 billion (€95.6 million).
