    GEA has secured a follow-up contract from Utkal Alumina, a 100% subsidiary of Aditya Birla Group Company Hindalco to build a third line of multi-stage falling film evaporators.

    GEA, the world-renowned state-of-art evaporation technology provider has already supplied the first two evaporator lines with a capacity of 310 tonnes per hour each to this refinery. These evaporator lines had been commissioned in 2013.

    The evaporation unit removes water added to the process from residue washing, product washing, and other various sources. The so-called alumina spent liquor is concentrated and then used again for the digestion of the bauxite rock. The evaporation plant is designed to operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in continuous operation with sufficient cleaning frequency.

    The execution of the third evaporator line will support increasing the alumina production to 2 million tonnes from the previous record of 1.5 million tonnes.

    The supply of GEA will include process equipment such as pressure vessels, heat exchangers, pumps, tanks and separators, process and supply piping, as well as instrumentation and commissioning to ensure the best quality execution of this project.

    GEA will take care to meet all efficiency, safety, and environmental requirements.

    GEA engineers also examined the extent to which process steps can be combined and integrated energetically to achieve the lowest possible energy balance. GEA has extensive know-how and decades of experience in this application. GEA’s presence in India enables the company to provide local site services and equipment delivery.

    Suket Gohil, Country Managing Director, GEA India Cluster said: “We are proud to have received a follow-up order from Utkal Alumina that reflects confidence in GEA’s technology and product quality. GEA has more than a hundred thirty reference plants in the alumina industry. The extensive know-how gained in building these plants gives us the experience to design new plants that are tailored to the customer’s needs and minimize operating costs.”
