The contract is with Alstom and the pumping systems will be used for boiler feedwater and condensate service at two units, each generating 900 MW, at the plant operated by Polska Grupa Energetyczna.
The plant will be the largest coal facility in Poland when it is completed, which is scheduled for 2019. The pumping systems servicing the two units include type CHTA main feedwater pumps, which are double casing, multistage barrel pumps, and type HDX booster pumps, which are single-stage, radially split, double-suction pumps.
Flowserve says these pumps are built specifically to withstand ultra-high temperatures and pressures, “making them ideal for safe and reliable operation at ultra-supercritical coal plants”
Jim Quain, president of Flowserve’s sales organization, said: “With industrial growth in Poland on the rise, it is increasingly critical to meet the country's need for power supply through safe and efficient operations.”
He added that ultra-supercritical “technology is the most efficient coal power plant design available today, reducing environmental impact and meeting regulatory requirements".
In addition to the main feedwater and booster pumps, the Flowserve systems will include electric motors, variable speed hydro-couplings, support systems and required instrumentation. Flowserve will also supervise the installation and start-up of the equipment.
