Peter Brotherhood receives steam turbine order in Macau

Peter Brotherhood Ltd., a UK-based power engineering company, has announced an order worth more than (US)$930,000 to supply a waste heat recovery steam turbine for a power station on the Chinese coast. It is to be installed in the Portuguese territory of Macau.

Demand for electricity is growing at 12 percent annually, prompting Companhia de Electricidade de Macau to proceed with a further extension of its Coloane power station where the main generation is provided by diesel engines. Two additional 50-MW diesel generating sets are being installed in a plant designed and construction by a consortium led by Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor, a Danish engineering and contracting company. This extension will also include an exhaust gas waste heat recovery system. Steam produced by the HRSG will drive a turbo-alternator set. Peter Brotherhood is scheduled to deliver the equipment by May 1995.

Peter Brotherhood is expanding with its recent acquisition of Turboflex Ltd., a manufacturer and supplier of power transmission coupling for the power generation industry. Turboflex will continue to operate from its existing offices in High Wycombe, UK, and will retain its present workforce. Turboflex has annual sales exceeding (US)$4.6 million. Peter Brotherhood bought the company from IMO Industries Inc. of the United States for an undisclosed price.
