CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — SPX Corporation (NYSE: SPW) today announced that its Thermal Equipment and Services segment has been awarded new orders for dry cooling systems for three different power plants in Indonesia, Jordan and Mexico totaling approximately $40 million.
Under the terms of the contracts, SPX will provide air cooled condensers (ACC) to a 2×140 MW coal-fired power plant in Babelan, Indonesia, to the SAMRA III 140 MW add-on combined cycle power plant in Al Zarqa, Jordan, and to a 205 MW combined cycle power plant in San Luis de la Paz, Mexico.
“As emerging and developed countries around the world continue to expand their energy infrastructure to meet growing demand for electricity, we continue to see demand for our highly efficient dry cooling technologies for power plants,” said Gene Lowe, SPX segment president. “SPX’s air cooled condensers are a popular cooling system choice for power producers operating various types of power plants in dry climates where water usage is restricted or where water is in low supply.”
