Alstom has bagged €100m contracts for air quality control equipment from Emirates Aluminium (EMAL) and Hanwa Engineering and Construction.

Under the first contract, Alstom will provide two gas treatment plants and one fume treatment plant for the second phase of EMAL's aluminium smelter in the Al Taweelah industrial zone, Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The plants will capture, filter and recycle corrosive gas produced by the smelter, notably hydrogen fluoride, improving air quality and conforming to environmental requirements.

Alstom has also received a contract from Hanwa Engineering and Construction to engineer, supply and supervise the commissioning of seawater flue gas desulphurisation systems for the second phase of the Marafiq power plant in the Yanbu Industrial Area of Saudi Arabia.
