Peter Brotherhood - the
Peterborough UK, based steam turbine manufacturer - has won a £1.5
million order to supply a 12.7 MW turbo-alternator set for a new power
station in Slough, UK.
The station is being built
by Slough Heat and Power, a subsidiary of Slough Estates plc, to supply
power to the national grid. Peter Brotherhood will design and manufacture
an extraction condensing turbine complete with alternator and turbine
Peter Brotherhood won the
contract because of Slough Estate's previous experience of operating the
company's turbines. A similar 8.1 MW set was purchased two years ago as
part of the upgrading of the power station at the Slough Trading Estate.
The new machine is due to
be installed during the first half of 2001 by contractor AGRA Birwelco
which placed the order with Peter Brotherhood.
