Space-saving PHEs chosen for turbine cooling

The Medupi Power Station is a new dry-cooled coal fired power station being built by Eskom, the South African public electricity utility. Destined to be the largest of its type in the world, the plant will have six boilers, each powering an 800 MW Alstom turbine, producing 4,800 MW of power. Alfa Laval gasketed plate heat exchangers (PHEs) are installed in the turbine systems as distillate coolers, air seal oil coolers and hydrogen seal oil coolers.
