Centrax Drives Away With Goodyear Order
UK-based Centrax Gas Turbines has won an order from Elyo, part of Suez Energie Services, in France to supply two CX501-KB5 generator sets. The order follows an agreement between Elyo and Goodyear for all power at the Goodyear Dunlop tire plant at Amiens in France’s Picardy region. Goodyear has two plants in Amiens producing 60 000 tires a day and employing 2,600 people. The Centrax generator sets will supply power to both plants.
Installation work is being carried out during annual holiday closures to avoid disruption to tyre production, and is being completed in two phases, the second being the installation and commissioning of the cogeneration plant scheduled for completion in November 2006
The two Centrax packages will be operated by Elyo at the site in a cogeneration capacity, supplying power plus heat to three heat recovery boilers. Elyo will also be installing the boilers and other ancillary equipment.
