Peter Brotherhood supplies largest African turbine to Zimbabwe


Peter Brotherhood - the steam turbine manufacturer based in Peterborough, UK - has won a contract for what is believed to be the largest steam turbine ever supplied to a sugar mill in Africa.

The 20 MW, $3 million (2 million) machine has been ordered by contractor PMS which is helping to refurbish the mill in Hippo Valley near Chirezdi owned by Hippo Valley Estates. The back-pressure turbine will use steam raised from burning bagasse - the waste material left after the harvesting of sugar cane - to generate the mill's electrical power and the exhaust steam will be used in the sugar refining process.

Peter Brotherhood won the contract because of its extensive experience of designing and installing such machines. The company has more than 500 steam turbines operating in sugar mills around the world, including more than 100 in Africa.

The machine for Hippo Valley is almost 50 per cent bigger than any similar turbine known to be operating in the continent. It is due to be installed before the middle of 2001.
