Hayward Tyler, supplier of pumps and motors for the energy sector, has been awarded a multimillion-dollar contract to supply a glandless pump package for a solar project in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The company’s glandless pump packages will be a critical part of the solar tower steam generator system at the plant, and will consist of six forced-circulating pumps and four start-circulating pumps. The pumps will serve the 100MW CSP tower.
The contract, which was awarded by China’s Shanghai Electric Group, is for installation at the Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park Phase IV, a 950MW concentrating solar power (CSP) and photovoltaic (PV) hybrid independent power producer (IPP).
The Dubai solar park is an important project supporting the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, which aims to increase the city’s use of clean energy to 75% of its total energy mix by 2050.
