Sudanese Sugar Company - Assalay

Project: Assalaya – Sudanese Sugar Company

In 2004, PGBI Engineers and Constructors were awarded a turnkey contract by the Sudanese Sugar Company to supply a cooling system to service a 13mW Condensing Turbine Alternator. Tektower were awarded the sub-contract for the supply of the evaporative cooling tower.

The tower was designed to cool water drawn from the White Nile River, and therefore had to be of a robust design to withstand a combination of water-borne ( river water ) and airborne ( bagasse ) contamination.

For these harsh conditions, Tektower’s patented splashtube packing was selected as the heat exchange medium of choice. This packing offers high fouling resistance, robust construction and good efficiencies. In addition the tubular nature reduces air pressure drops resulting in lower fan motor powers.

Tower Specifications:
Number of Cells: 3
Cell Size: 92m2
Tower Dimension (LxWxH): 29.25m x 9.75m x 12.5m
Heat rejection Capacity: 61mW
Water Flow Rate: 5250m3/hr

Special Features:
Splashtube Packing
Overhead Crawlbeam for fan / drive assembly removal
