Andritz said it has received an order from the Chilean electricity generation company AES Gener S.A. and its subsidiary Norgener S.A. to supply two turnkey flue gas desulphurization (FGD) plants, including two fabric filters, for the 280 MW Tocopilla coal-fired power plant.
Andritz will also supply an FGD plant and a fabric filter for Unit 1 and a bag filter plant for the Ventanas coal-fired power station.
The order value is close to EUR100 million ($131.7 million).
Both plants will use the Andritz Energy and Environment (AE&E) TurboSorp dry desulphurization technology. The scope of supply includes design, engineering, manufacture, installation, and start-up of the plants on EPC basis.
Start-up is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2013.
