GEA awarded major orders from Morocco and Hong Kong

19-Oct-2010

GEA Mechanical Equipment has received 2 major orders for the delivery of fuel systems for a gas turbine power plant in Morocco and of decanters for the municipal waste water clarification plant of the mega-zone Hong Kong.

For the expansion of the gas turbine power plant “Kenitra” to the north of the Moroccan capital Rabat GEA won the order for the delivery of a complete fuel and process water treatment system. The order volume totals around EUR 7 million and the shipment is scheduled for May 2011. The power plant is designed as a backup installation for an existing hydroelectric power plant and to ensure the power supply in the region in months when precipitation is low. After a construction period of 25 months, the 300 megawatt gas turbine power plant will go on stream in 2012. Due to the properties of the fuels, the complete treatment system will be delivered in explosion-proof design. This contract is a follow-up project for the "Mohammedia" plant successfully delivered in 2008 which was likewise designed for the end customer “ONE” (Office National de l'Electricité), the state-run utility company. The contractor of GEA is GE France.

The plant manufacturer ATAL Engineering ordered 14 decanter centrifuges for Hong Kong’s large-scale waste water clarification plant Stonecutters Island. The first machines will be delivered at the beginning of 2012. GEA’s decanters will take over the full capacity of the waste water treatment plant from 2015 onwards.
