Power Generation

As World Energy Outlook 2014 proves, Global investment in the power sector amounts to $21 trillion through to 2040, with over 40% in transmission and distribution networks.

How Does A Thermal Plant Work
Thermal power generation plant or thermal power station is the most conventional source of electric power, transforming energy from fuels, such as generally coal, oil, or gas, into electricity.

In thermal power plant heated water turns into steam and spins a steam turbine which then drives an electrical generator. After it passes through the turbine, the steam is condensed in a condenser and recycled to where it was heated in a thermal power plant.

Energy optimization through pumping systems

Pumps and pumping systems are used in power plants for primary applications such as fuel oil handling and for auxiliary systems such as lubrication and cooling. On average, a 300 MW combined cycle power plant will have more than 100 pumps. Both centrifugal and positive displacement pumps are utilized in power generation applications

Extracting heat from a fuel takes place over a number of stages and some energy is wasted at each stage and meaning are operating at a low efficiency level. That is where Western Energy engineers’ expertise come for a right support. It is critical for us to ensure that not only the right type of pump is selected, but also to guarantee that the pump and pumping system is properly sized.

At Western Energy we are able to offer an outstanding support for all common applications, such as Circulating Water Pump, Seawater Lift Pump, Boiler Feedwater and Booster Pump, Condensate Extraction and Booster Pumps. In addition, Auto-Recirculating Valves can be supplied for an ultimate pump protection upon request.

Lubrication Oil Transfer Pump

Benefits:  Well suited for liquids sensitive to shear forces and turbulences thanks to the low internal velocities given by the screw movements. Self-priming, this type of pump with single, two or three pairs of screws is suitable for transferring fluids with low, medium, high and very high viscosity, up to 35000 cST and flowrate up to 3000 m3/hr. High Suction Lift Capabilities (7 to 8,5 m).


Boiler Feed Pump

Benefits: The ability to withstand high system pressures, perform in low NPSH conditions and transfering fluids at high temperatures without damaging the shaft seal are characteristics of our Between Bearing Pumps. Our product range is able to cater for applications that include the treatment of feed water, the pumping of condensate and boiler feed.


ARC Valve

Benefits: Valves automatically protect centrifugal pumps against wear, total loss and damage, which can occur due to dry running or during low-load operation. They are not susceptible to interference and are very low maintenance. In addition, they require no additional power supply or any kind of control unit, thus ensuring low operating costs.


Fuel Transfer Pump

Benefits: Particularly robust, the pump finds its best application in all fields where versatility, reliability, and safety are required. Compare to the more traditional Positive Displacement Pumps, this type has an advantage of absolutely no impulses and better delivery repetition.  Can be considered ideal batching pumps where the flow rate is directly proportional to the number of revolutions.


Booster Service Pump

Benefits: Vertical Turbine pumps are available in a wide variety of hydraulic and mechanical coverage and materials of construction to suit application requirements. Our range of custom-engineered constructed pumps are rigidly designed to ensure vibration free operation. Hydraulic designs are continually updated with our continuous R&D efforts to meet requirements of higher efficiency, lower submergence and reliability. Vertical Turbine pumps in API 610 standards are also available.


Fire Fighting

Benefits: Custom design fire pump packages to requirements of NFPA 20 standards and to your design specifications. We offer a broad range of horizontal and vertical split case, vertical in-line, end suction and vertical turbine designs over a wide range of rated capacities and pressures; pumps for every fire pump application
