Hitachi pumps for Egypt thermal power plant
Tokyo, December 15, 2010
Hitachi Plant Technologies has won a contract to supply pumps for Egypt's first supercritical thermal power plant.
The order covers manufacture and delivery of a total of 32 pumps, including pumps for boiler feed water and recirculating pumps, as well as four steam turbines for pump drive and 24 electric motors, all scheduled for delivery in December 2012, a statement said.
Since the delivery of nine drainage pumps to the El Max Pumping Station in 1960 and the delivery in 2003 of 21 pumps for the Mubarak Pump Station, which has the world's largest water pumping capacity, Hitachi Plant Technologies has delivered a total of 139 pumps to Egypt (including the pumps of this order), contributing significantly to the development of Egyptian society and industry over the course of many years, it said.
The pumps in this contract will be delivered to the El Ain El Sokhna Supercritical Thermal Power Plant located in the Ain Sokhna district on the Gulf of Suez, approximately 120 km east-southeast of Cairo. – ME NewsWire
