Clyde Bergemann Head Hunted & Awarded 1.5 Million Euro Contract
Tuesday, September 4th, 2007
Clyde Bergemann Ltd, Scotland has been head hunted by Hungarian Boiler Manufacturer, Transelektro, to refurbish two boilers at Kangal Power Station in Turkey. The total contract awarded to the group is worth an impressive 1.5 million euros, providing a huge boost to the power groupâ€™s international market position.
For several years Turkey has struggled with a growing under-capacity problem and the Turkish Government and EUAS (which owns and operates Kangal Power Station) had to decide whether building new power stations or modernising older boilers in existing stations, or indeed a combination of both would be the correct way forward.
To facilitate this decision, Transelektro, as the original equipment supplier to the power station, were appointed to undertake a feasibility study and as a result it was decided that the two older boilers at Kangal would under-go a refurbishment. Having already supplied an efficient, state-of-the-art sootblowing system at Kangal, Clyde Bergemann Ltd was head hunted to work with Transelektro as a key partner.
All equipment will be delivered before the end of 2007 to enable Transelektro to have both the new boilers fully operational in 2008.
Iain Carruthers, Sales Manager at Clyde Bergemann commented:
â€œThe decision to award this significant contract to Clyde Bergemann not only is a great recognition of our expertise, but it is also a testament to the high level of technical and commercial support we have provided over a period of two years during the feasibility study.
â€œAdditionally, it is also an endorsement of the equipment we implemented successfully ten years ago, which is still operating effectively and efficiently.â€
