Charlotte NC (SPX) Mar 09, 2011
SPX has released additional details regarding its Thermal Equipment and Services segment entry into a $20 million contract to replace moisture separator reheaters (MSRs) for Biblis nuclear power plant A, located in the west-central region of Germany and operated by RWE Power. Plans call for SPX's Balcke-Duerr business to manufacture and install the components.

"Having installed moisture separator reheaters at nuclear power plants since the late 1960s, SPX is a pioneer of this key technology in nuclear power generation, and has supplied Balcke-Duerr-branded moisture separator reheaters to power plants throughout Germany," said Drew Ladau, SPX segment president.

"We supplied the replacement MSRs for Biblis plant B in 2003, and we appreciate the continued trust placed in the reliability and efficiency of our systems."

The Biblis plant, located 13 kilometers north of the city of Worms in the Hessen region, consists of two pressurized water reactor units with a total electrical capacity of about 2,500 MW.

At full output, the units generate enough electricity annually to meet the needs of five million residential households in Germany. According to RWE Power estimates, the plants also prevent emissions of about 15 million tons of carbon dioxide per year, in comparison to power generation from fossil fuels. RWE Power is the second largest generator of power in Germany.

With decades of experience in supplying MSRs, Balcke-Duerr offers proven designs for both vertical and horizontal MSRs.

In addition to manufacturing Balcke-Duerr branded products used worldwide, SPX's thermal equipment and services segment is a leading provider of wet, dry and hybrid cooling towers, used by thousands of power stations and plants in more than 60 countries across six continents.
