Hayward Tyler Ltd, a leading manufacturer of pumps and motors for the power and oil and gas industries has won a multi-million pound contract from Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) India, the largest engineering and manufacturing enterprise in India in the energy-related/infrastructure sector, for the supply of 12 off 380kW Glandless Boiler Water Circulation Pumps (BCWP).
The pumps, scheduled for delivery in 2010, will operate within the high pressure part of the boiler system (2 BCP's on continuous duty, one on standby) with a boiler and turbine combination producing 500MW electrical output.
6 BCP's will be installed at a power station in the District of Koderma, which was mostly created in 1994 and also known as the mica capital of India. Another 6 BCP's will be installed at a power station in Durgapur, created in the 1950's and located in the district of Burdwan, in the state West Bengal, India, 168 km to the north of Calcutta, with a population of about 250,000.
Hayward Tyler first developed the Glandless (Sealless) pump motor in the early 1940's, and although there have been many refinements and design improvements since then, HT remains the world's leading supplier and specialist manufacturer of this type of equipment. The pumps are specifically designed to pump high pressure and high temperature water or other fluids (Density) and are renowned for their reliability, running in some cases continuously, for several decades.
Vic Erdilek, Hayward Tyler Power Market Development Manager says: "This contract award represents a great team achievement, giving Hayward Tyler an opportunity to strengthen its presence in the Indian market. A key selection factor for BHEL was the high energy efficiency levels achieved by our Glandless Motor Pumps when benchmarked against our competitors."
Hayward Tyler is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Niche Engineering Group, Southbank UK Plc, a company that invests in sound and profitable engineering companies.
