SPECIAL CHALLENGE: BRUSH delivers the first of 10 BDAX 87-520ERH turbogenerators

Rising to the Saudi challenge

Ten BRUSH DAX 8 turbogenerators are now being installed at the Saudi Electricity Company’s Riyadh power plant.

Shipped from the BRUSH CZ Plzen factory between November 2012 and April 2013, the 210 tonne generators will add 1300MW to the plant’s generation capacity. The technical specification for the power plant in the Saudi Arabian capital made BRUSH the natural choice of supplier.

Matthew Handford, Project Manager, said: “Presently the project is in the installation phase and both BRUSH and the turbine supplier are working closely with the client to ensure as smooth an installation as possible.”
