MACOGA has successfully completed the design, manufacturing and testing of one In-Line Pressure Balanced Expansion Joint DN 3000 plus Hinged and Lateral units DN 2400 for the 120 MW Ramat Negev Power Plant.
The Ramat Negev Power Plant is located within the site of the Makhteshim Chemicals Works Ltd. plant in the Ramat Hovav industrial zone, Israel. The project will include a combined cycle cogeneration plant which will generate approximately 120 MW of electricity plus an additional 110 tons per hour of process steam for the industrial host. The plant will use natural gas as its primary fuel.
The Caojing polycarbonate project is one of the biggest chemical investments in China to date. It is a world-scale production facility located in north eastern China. The plant is sited at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park.
A number of 12 Expansion Joints Axial Tied, Lateral, Hinged and Jacketed completely made in stainless steel 316Ti have been recently shipped from MACOGA facilities.
MACOGA has successfully completed the design, manufacturing, testing and shipping of the largest order ever made for Saudi Arabia.
A number of 50 units Lateral MWL DN2200, 50 units Hinged MWP DN 2200 and 10 units Turbine to Condenser Universal DN2800 have been delivered to the Saudi Electricity Company 2,600 MW power generation plant PP10.
The Power plant, built on an area of 5 million square meters outside the capital of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh, is a Greenfield project that will initially install 36 GTG simple cycle base loaded gas turbines on treated crude oil for future conversion to combined cycle blocks with the addition of unfired HRSGs and steam turbine gensets. Once completed, the new PP10 project will increase Riyadh’s installed capacity by about 20% to meet projected energy shortages.
The existing Azito plant will be converted to a more efficient combined cycle plant, increasing capacity by 50%; the new capacity will use no additional fuel and will result in no rise in CO emissions.
The combined cycle technology being installed at the plant uses waste heat from the existing gas turbine exhausts to produce steam used to drive the new steam turbine generator. It will not require any additional fuel to increase the capacity. Once operational, the additional electricity will be sold to the State through a 20 year concession, making Azito one of the largest and most efficient thermal generation facilities in the country.
MACOGA has been awarded an order for the design and supply of a big number of Large size Expansion Joints for the Brunswick County Power Station, Virginia, USA. The order comprises the delivery of 2 Dog Bone units NB 5500 x 6100, 1 Hinged NB 7500, 6 Lateral units NB 2600 mm plus 24 axial MWA units NB 2600. The new plant, of approximately 1,300 megawatt, is being engineered and constructed by Fluor, is expected to be completed by May of 2016 and will produce enough electricity to power more than 325,000 homes.
A pressure Balanced Expansion Joints of 2800 mm nominal bore and 5000 mm long has been successfully delivered to an Energy to Waste facility in the UK.
The construction of this plant at Ardley Fields Farm in Oxfordshire is programmed to be completed, commissioned and fully operational in the second half of 2014.
