Vallourec wins large order for a supercritical power plant in Saudi Arabia

20 March 2014 - Vallourec has been selected to supply 10,000 tons of tubes for the construction of the Shuqaiq Steam Power Plant in Saudi Arabia. Deliveries are scheduled for the first second and third quarter of 2014. Vallourec’s products will be used in the boilers of the oil-fired steam power plant which will be built in Shuqaiq, approximately 580 km to the south of Jeddah on the Red Sea coast.

 
The 2 640 MW plant is intended for the desalination of sea water and will be completed by 2017. The facility has adopted the supercritical pressure power plant technology which uses very high steam pressures to generate electricity, resulting in lower fuel consumption and less pollution in comparison to other technologies.
