The KZN Branch of SAIMechE invites you to attend a technical talk & dinner 


A new power station was constructed at AKSA Power in Yalova, Turkey, using components from ESKOM's Ingagane power station in Newcastle, and several sites in Europe, Austria and the Czech Republic. The Boiler was a Mitchell 400 t/h, 100 bar coal fired boiler, converted to Coal and Gas burner systems for Turkish operations. One Turbine alternator set was an AEG 120 MW, and the second was a 40 MW Skoda. The FD fans & PF system were from St Andrea, Austria. The Selective Catalytic Reduction NOx control unit was designed by our team. The ESP was from Ingagane and the Flue Gas Desulphurization SOx control unit was from Linz Austria.
