Power International negotiates agreement in Kazakhstan

The government of Kazakhstan has signed an exclusive agreement with Power International, a subsidiary of US-based CINergy, to develop and implement privatization programs for the Republic`s power industry. The goal of the agreement is to provide the republic with reliable, economic and environmentally clean electric power to support economic growth into the next century, according to Michael Mallinen, Power International managing director.

Collar ram

Locking collar rams are available in capacities ranging from 55 tons to 565 tons. Stroke lengths varying from 2 inches to 13 inches are offered for all tonnages. The locking collar provides a mechanical support for a lifted load. Rams feature a 3-to-1 safety factor on the locking collar and piston rod threads.

Generator engines

A mechanically injected, modular unit, the 24V-71TA engine is rated for standby power sets of 900 kWe and 1,000 kWe at 60 Hz and for prime power sets of up to 1,000 KVa at 50 Hz. The 20V-149TIB engine is suitable for 1,750 kWe standby application at 60 Hz. Both models use a modular assembly concept which provides proven components; interchangeable common parts with other engine configurations of the same series; service technicians use existing tools to maintain the engine; and lower rebuild cos

Hydraulic turbine equipment

Hydraulic turbine equipment and systems for hydro power generation facilities are designed by Energy & Process Corp. Its engineering capabilities include system design and engineering of Francis, Pelton and Kaplan type turbines including electrical generation.

Analyzer

The Model CLD 70-E NOx analyzer measures total oxides of nitrogen. The 70-E address the needs of more than 90 percent of the emission/process applications for direct extractive measurement of NOx. High resolution enables the unit?s use in many dilution probe applications where the NOx values are relatively low in concentration. The unit includes a chemiluminescent detector, ozone generator and NO/NO2 converter.

Valve

The 20-inch design EHT valve, 23,500 pounds, includes 7-inch thick, ANSI Class 1,500 raised face flanges. The valve controls the natural gas flow. The valve body and bonnet, made of low-carbon steel, received radiographic and magnetic particle testing.

Energy software

PE-Producing Energy software, version 1.5, includes language options, enhanced calculations and more in PC and Mac-intosh versions. The software examines and compares different energy production in locations around the world, taking into account economical and ecological effects. Producing Energy uses animation and graphical presentations to take the user through each step of power production, covering coal, gas, nuclear, solar, wind and hydropower plants.

Turbine control (301nps01-f)

The NetCon /C control integrates all components into a single cabinet. It is available in three configurations. The hardware within each configuration remains fixed while the software changes. The NetCon /C cabinet includes fuel control, sequencing, monitoring, overspeed detection, flame detection, ground fault detection, operator interface, interposing relays, power supplies and terminal blocks for field wiring. The frame version also includes vibration monitoring. The fuel control software sp

Hydra-Co and partners developing private diesel facility in Jamaica

A 60-MW slow-speed diesel generating facility, to be located in Kingston, Jamaica, will be developed by Hydra-Co Enterprises Inc. and its development partners International Energy Partners and US Energy Corp., both of Bethesda, Md., USA, and Precursor Systems Inc., Reno, Nev., USA.

Motor heads

The natural field orientation (NFO) is a chip that controls the AC induction motor. The NFO uses advanced mathematical equations and measured electrical circuit parameters values to control the motor.
