Geothermal project in Kenya to use SPX parts

SPX Corp. (NYSE: SPW) announced that SPX Heat Transfer Inc. has been awarded a contract to supply four advanced direct contact condensers (ADCC's) to what will eventually be the largest geothermal power plant in Kenya.

The ADCC's will serve four Toshiba 70 MW steam turbines at the new plant being constructed. SPX Heat Transfer was selected to provide the condensers by Hyundai Engineering, the full turnkey contractor for Kenya Electricity Generating Co.'s Olkaria I and IV geothermal plants. The two plants are expected to be completed by April 2014.

The ADCC technology is made to provide low liquid/vapor side pressure drop, high thermal efficiency, minimal degradation by non-condensibles, low susceptibility to fouling and or/corrosion, and prediction of absorption of non-condensibles.
