Flowserve Awarded Several Contracts for Pumping Systems at Cogeneration Power Plant in Germany


Flowserve Corporation (NYSE: FLS), a provider of flow control products and services for the global infrastructure markets, announced it received multiple orders for key pumping systems for the Lichterfelde Cogeneration Power Plant.

The orders were booked in the first quarter of 2014. Located in Germany, the 300-megawatt (MW) plant replaces an old coal plant. Cogeneration power plants use natural gas as a fuel and have an efficiency level almost double that of a comparable coal fired plant, resulting in significantly reduced emission levels. The cogeneration facility utilizes the otherwise wasted heat energy for district heating.

The Flowserve pumping systems at the heart of this plant use heavy-duty, radially split, multistage between bearings pumps for boilerfeed service (BFP) and canned vertical turbine pumps for condensate extraction (CEP). In addition, Flowserve will also provide the pumps for the district heating process.

"Flowserve s extensive experience and history of supplying equipment for cogeneration and combined cycle power plant projects of this magnitude were crucial factors in winning these orders," said Jim Quain, president, Flowserve Sales Organization. "Also important was our ability to supply the entire project s pumping needs as well as our full line of services, including installation, start-up and lifetime maintenance."

The engineering and construction activity for the projects is being managed by Iberdrola, the distinguished Spanish engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company.
