Expansion Joints for Termocandelaria Power Project in Colombia
We have been awarded a contract for the engineering, design, manufacturing, testing and shipping of a large number of Expansion Joints for a Power Generating facility in Colombia.
Termocandelaria Power is the fourth largest electric power generation company in Colombia.
It is an OCGT power generation plant consisting of two Westinghouse 501FC gas turbine units. The plant began operating in 2000 and in 2007 converted the turbine’s fuel system from natural gas only to a dual-fuel, with diesel or fuel oil #2 as alternative fuel.
Termocandelaria is developing an expansion project through the conversion of its power plant from OCGT to a CCGT, which will increase its installed capacity by 252 MW, from 324 MW to 566 MW, which includes an enhancement of efficiency of close to 35%.
Expansion Joints supplied:
- Dog Bone Turbine to Condenser 7052 x 2225 mm
- Six Universal Tied MWL Series DN 2100 and 4500 mm long.
- Six Hinged MWP Series DN 2100 mm and 1100 mm long.
With this new project MACOGA consolidates its leadership position in the Power Generation sector.
MACOGA is present in South America for over 40 years. Termocandelaria is added to the extensive portfolio that MACOGA has conducted in Latin America, where MACOGA has delivered the Expansion Joints to innumerable large power stations.
