Vogt Power International, Inc., a subsidiary of Babcock Power Inc., has announced that it has been selected to supply a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) to the Israel Electric Corporation (IEC) for their Tzafit power station located near Kfar Menahem, Israel.
Vogt Power will design, manufacture and deliver a three pressure level, natural circulation HRSG for unit four to be installed behind a general electric 9FA gas turbine. The simple cycle to combined cycle conversion is expected to increase the plant’s output to 365MW of generation capacity at ISO conditions. Phase II of the Tzafit power station is scheduled for completion in 2011.
“We are looking forward to working with IEC as they increase their natural gas-fuelled power generation assets,” says Steve Kapsalis, president and CEO of Vogt Power. “The recent natural gas discoveries in southern Israel will provide new opportunities for our products throughout the region.”
IEC is the sole integrated electric utility in the State of Israel and generates, transmits and distributes substantially all the electricity used in the country. The State of Israel owns approximately 99.85% of IEC.
