Arako, valve manufacturer, part of the Russian group Atomenergomash, has supplied pickling and blow-out devices of new design for the project of construction of combined-cycle natural gas power plant “Mattawoman” via their customer Siemens Energy. Once completed, this power plant will be able to supply energy for about 859,000 homes in the Maryland / Washington D.C. metropolitan area, with an output of 859 MW.
Panda Power Funds intends to build, own and operate an 859 MW combined-cycle natural gas power plant in the industrial zone in Brandywine, Maryland. The Panda Mattawoman power plant will use advanced emission control technology, and is expected to contribute about USD $1.2 billion to the local economy during construction and the plant’s first 10 years of operation. The gas plant will create approximately 700-800 jobs in building industry, 25 permanent jobs to run the facility and 32 support jobs outside the facility.
The special product made in Arako – pickling and blow-out device, was newly designed and modified in 2020 to better meet the requirements of Siemens Energy Global and delivered in mid 2020 to projects in Japan and Pakistan.
