Power Plant Orders Air-Cooler Systems
An order to supply air-cooler systems to a power plant in the Middle East was placed with Alfa Laval, Lund, Sweden. The order, booked in the Energy & Process segment, has a value of approximately $13.3 million. Delivery is scheduled for 2016.
The air-cooler systems will be used for cooling duties in a combined-cycle power plant. The power plant uses both a gas turbine and a steam turbine, which combined enables it to produce up to 50 percent more electricity than a traditional simple-cycle plant, using the same amount of fuel.
