The contract, granted in December 2008, is scheduled to complete in October 2009.

Weir’s contract is to complete refurbishment of the turbine and generator comprising, site dismantling, condition assessment in the Alloa workshop, rotor pole renovation and stator cleaning, refurbishment of specified turbine components, site reassembly and commissioning. Project manager Stuart Wilkins commented, “We are delighted to receive this prestigious contract which reflects on the groups track record of delivering projects in a safe, environmentally responsible manner, on time and within the budget and performance expectations of the customer.”

British Energy repeat valve order

Weir News Headlines >> 
Weir Valves & Controls UK Ltd has won a repeat order for Batley Butterfly Valves (BV) 22000 series from British Energy. This follows the successful development and delivery of a solution specifically developed for British Energy. The valves will be used at Heysham 2 Nuclear Power Station which is capable of supplying over 1.5 million homes with electricity. Polyethylene pipe work has been installed within the Reactor Sea Water System to reduce the effects of corrosion and support more durable operation. The valves were manufactured using Super Duplex stainless steel providing improved strength and corrosion resistance, particularly in ambient sea water applications. Mike Craddock, system health engineer for Steam & Rotating Plant at Heysham 2 Power Station said, “We are extremely pleased with the performance of the BV 22000 valves and also with Weir Valves & Controls UK’s ability to develop, manufacture and deliver the valves in a short time frame, which was a key requirement.”

Aftermarket developments in emerging regions

Weir News Headlines >> 
Weir Power & Industrial have secured several aftermarket orders for services, spare parts and replacement valves through its facilities in South Africa and the Middle East. The service orders are for plant outage work at Kriel and Hendrina power stations in South Africa and Dugas in the Middle East. The significant installed base of Weir products in the emerging regions and increasing demand for power plant extensions and upgrades has driven the requirement for increased customer service support and spare parts. This has increased requirements for replacement valve products including repeat business for Maersk in conjunction with Prometal. The Middle East operation recently secured spares contracts for the refurbishment of the Kindasa Water Services plant in Saudi Arabia. Andrew Will, Power & Industrial Emerging Markets, sales & marketing director, said “The availability of local aftermarket support for product overhauls, spares and replacement valves gives Weir Power & Industrial a real advantage in this active key region and is aligned with Weir Group being a truly global supplier.”
