An In-Line Pressure Balanced MPB-I DN 4000, 14 units Gimbal DN 2200 and 7 units Hinged DN 2200 have been ordered to MACOGA for the Azito Power Plant expansion in Ivory Coast.
The existing Azito plant will be converted to a more efficient combined cycle plant, increasing capacity by 50%; the new capacity will use no additional fuel and will result in no rise in CO emissions.
The combined cycle technology being installed at the plant uses waste heat from the existing gas turbine exhausts to produce steam used to drive the new steam turbine generator. It will not require any additional fuel to increase the capacity. Once operational, the additional electricity will be sold to the State through a 20 year concession, making Azito one of the largest and most efficient thermal generation facilities in the country.
