Three contracts worth about US$2.7 billion were recently signed between GE and an affiliate of Algeria’s national electricity and gas company Sonelgaz. According to this agreement GE will supply SPE, the affiliate of Sonelgaz, with gas turbine combined-cycle and aeroderivative gas turbine technology for nine power plants.

The contracts include six new combined-cycle power plants that will ultimately increase Algeria’s generating capacity by 70% and add more than 8.0 GW of generation capacity in the country. There are two fast-track projects that add 528 MW of capacity and a new simple-cycle power plant to add 370 MW to Algeria’s electricity grid.
