Posted July 2, 2019

(PARUZZARO, Italy – July 2, 2019)  Babcock & Wilcox subsidiary SPIG S.p.A. (SPIG) has successfully completed a cooling tower upgrade project at an Antwerp, Belgium, production facility owned by its customer, Total Olefins Antwerp NV (TOA).

SPIG used its proven service engineering expertise to develop customized solutions to improve the performance of the plant’s existing cooling towers. SPIG replaced 12 existing cooling tower cells with six new units.

“This project completion marks an important milestone in our relationship with TOA,” said SPIG Managing Director Alberto Galantini. “SPIG’s global reach and unmatched expertise in delivering tailor-made engineering cooling tower solutions allowed us to efficiently and effectively meet our customer’s needs.”

SPIG completed the project on-schedule without disrupting the plant’s production capacity.

SPIG’s experience includes wet, dry and wet/dry hybrid cooling solutions as dictated by site-specific requirements. The company supplies mechanical and natural draft systems and designs for a wide range of project specifications such as high seismic loads, vibration control, corrosion, noise control, sub-freezing operation, and seawater use. 

Specialized services include preventive maintenance, equipment upgrades, replacement and spare parts, online performance monitoring, and a commitment to research and development to continually seek new and more efficient cooling system solutions.
