CECO Environmental Corp., a leading environmentally-focused diversified industrial company whose solutions protect people, the environment, and industrial facilities, announced that its Southeast Asia operation has supplied its CECO Peerless brand multi-cyclone scrubber centrifugal separators for the world’s largest single-shaft geothermal power turbine (over 125 MW) in Tauhara on New Zealand’s North Island. CECO Peerless, the market leader for geothermal separators and scrubbers in Asia, was awarded a multi-million dollar contract earlier this year. The project is scheduled for completion in 2023.

Multicyclone technology removes moisture from steam to achieve the highest quality steam dry content of 99.98 percent required for the steam turbine. The solution provides a low total cost of ownership with highly efficient liquid removal, ensuring maximum protection and increased turbine operating efficiency.

“Geothermal power is an environmentally friendly solution for energy production, but the wellhead steam requires specific solutions to protect the turbine and adjust for fluctuating conditions,” said David Barker, managing director of emerging markets, CECO Environmental. “CECO Peerless is one of the few leaders that can design, engineer and manufacture these advanced solutions to meet or exceed the customer’s technical specifications and also New Zealand’s codes and regulations. I am very proud of our Singapore-based operations who led this important project.”

The geothermal sector is just one example of the strong international clean energy growth markets for which CECO Environmental is well-positioned. For more information on separators, visit:
