UK power generation packaging specialist Centrax has announced major orders for its gas turbine products.

In Italy the company launched its CX400 model powered by the 12.9 MW Siemens SGT-400 gas turbine, with the order coming from the Italian energy management company Fenice.

The CX400 will provide heat and power for the Huntsman Tioxide plant in Scarlino, 100km south of Florence, which produces titanium dioxide for use as a pigment in paint. The order includes a long-term maintenance contract provided by Centrax.

Meanwhile in France, contract energy management company Dalkia has ordered a Centrax CX501-KB7 package for a district heating plant near Cenon, Bordeaux. This 5 MW cogeneration unit replaces an older competitor’s generator set that has reached the end of its 12-year contract.

An important customer benefit of the Centrax unit is its ability to use the existing boiler and much of the ductwork, significantly reducing installation costs.
