Sweet success at Peter Brotherhood

Business | Press | News

The 20 MW Peter Brotherhood steam turbine being lowered into place through a hole in the roof of the Hippo Valley sugar mill.

Peterborough, UK-based, specialist turbine manufacture Peter Brotherhood has won a £1.2 million contract to supply a steam turbo-alternator set to Mtibwa Sugar Mill in Tanzania – increasing the total number of Peter Brotherhood systems used at the mill to seven. The new back-pressure turbine will have the highest electrical power output of those at the mill and will be one of the largest systems installed in a sugar processing factory in Tanzania.

It will generate 9MW of electricity from steam created from burning bagasse, the waste material left after the processing of sugar cane.

The electricity generated will be used to power the mill and the exhaust steam will be used in the sugar refining process – making it a particularly ‘environmentally-friendly’ form of power generation.

The turbine will be supplied complete with a gearbox oil system and control panel and will be delivered during the second quarter of 2003. Engineers from Peter Brotherhood will install and commission the system.

Peter Brotherhood delivered its first turbo alternator set to Mtibwa Mill in 1977 and has continued to provide equipment to the factory as it has been extended and modernised.

Peter Brotherhood specialises in the design and manufacture of steam turbines and turbo-alternator sets for the cane sugar industry and has over one hundred machines installed in Africa. Similar turbo-alternator sets have been supplied to sugar mills in Sudan, Kenya, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

The company has extensive experience in designing and manufacturing the particularly robust turbo-alternator sets required for this type of application. It has supplied more than 500 systems to sugar mills around the world.
