GEA to supply heat exchangers for solar thermal power generation

By Gerald Ondrey |

GEA Ibérica, a Spanish subsidiary of GEA Group Bochum, Germany; www.geagroup.com) has received an order to design, manufacture and supply seven surface condensers for new solar thermal power plants in Spain with an aggregate capacity of 350 MW. Worth about 6-million euros, the order has been placed by Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB (Finspong, Sweden). The surface condensers will be manufactured at the GEA Caldemon site in Santander, Spain. GEA Ibérica, which is part of the Energy and Farm Technology segment, has acquired the site only recently in order to enhance its range of production. This factory has been the supplier for surface condensers to GEA Ibérica before. “The order rewards our strategic focus on the growing solar thermal power industry,” says Ramon Rodriguez, managing director of GEA Ibérica S.A. Securing a stable workload for the Santander factory, the order is due for delivery before the end of 2010. “To gauge the vast market potential of this proven technology, consider the recently reported initiative of several big industrial and utility companies, such as Siemens, Eon and RWE. They are looking for ways how to turn the Club of Rome’s ‘Desertec’…
