Hyundai Heavy Industries Engine & Machinery Division (HHI-EMD) is supplying a number of large pumps for the 700MW supercritical Gecho-One coal-fired thermal power plant which is being built in Map ta Phut, Rayong Province, Thailand.

The pump order includes seven sets of cooling water pumps, boiler feed water pumps, boiler feed water booster pumps and boiler feed water start-up pumps. Pump delivery will be completed in April 2010.

The pumps are so large that the boiler feed water pump units have a drive rating of 15 000 kW and the maximum flow rate per cooling water pump unit is in excess of 72 900 m3/hr.

HHI-EMD says it won the order because of the advisory technical support it was able to offer the customer during the design stages of the pumping station and the intake structure.
