Colfax To Deliver Skid Order For Gas Turbines In Iraq
Allweiler AG, the business unit for Colfax Corp., will deliver a US$6.3 million (€5 million) fuel-injected skid order through Siemens AG for use in gas turbines in Iraq. The skids will be used for power plant expansions in Kirkuk and in new plant being constructed in Baiji and Baghdad.
Designed for redundancy with two high-pressure pumps, the skids are designed to switch between multiple fuel types within a short time without turning off the turbines. The skids can handle the fuel change thanks to its valve control system, which can accommodate significant temperature changes and control liquid pressure.
The first two skids will be completed in early 2011. The Iraqi Ministry of Electricity has ordered an additional five skids, with the option to purchase three more.
