Two Orders For Centrax

Packages to replace older generator in France; produce heat, power, long-term maintenance contract in Italy

Posted on February 6, 2013

Centrax, a U.K. power-generation packaging specialist, has won orders for its gas turbine products from France and Italy.

Contract energy management company Dalkia has ordered a Centrax CX501-KB7 package for a district heating plant near Cenon, Bordeaux, France. This 5 MW cogeneration unit replaces an older generator set that has reached the end of its 12-year contract. 

The second order is for the recently-launched Centrax CX400, powered by the 12.9 MW Siemens SGT-400 gas turbine. The Italian energy management company Fenice ordered the CX400 to provide heat and power for the Huntsman Tioxide plant in Scarlino, 100 km south of Florence. The plant produces titanium dioxide for use as a pigment in paint. The order includes a long-term maintenance contract provided by Centrax.

Centrax said these orders follow numerous orders in the growing competitive Russian market. Centrax technicians are preparing to install and commission 17 generating sets that will allow significant expansion of three major oil fields, the company said.

This year in Russia alone, Centrax technicians are preparing to install and commission 17 generating sets that will allow significant expansion of three major oil fields.
