CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --SPX Corporation today
announced that its Thermal Equipment and Services segment has been awarded a
contract worth approximately$35 million to supply an air-cooled condenser
(ACC) for a new 835 MW natural gas-fired, combined cycle power plant scheduled
to be constructed in Israel. The contract was awarded by Alstom, which was
previously awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC)
contract for the plant by Dalia Power Energies Ltd. A portion of SPX's
contract was received in Q4 2012 and was included in backlog reported at year

Featuring two 417 MW, gas-fired combined cycle units, the Tzafit plant is
expected to be the country's largest privately-owned power station. Located 40
kilometers southeast of Tel Aviv, the plant is scheduled to be commissioned in
2014, and add 835 MW to the national grid, representing roughly seven percent
of Israel's installed power generation capacity.

"The Tzafit combined cycle power plant represents a significant power
infrastructure expansion for Israel and is expected to sharply increase the
country's ability to meet future electricity demand," said Gene Lowe, SPX
segment president. "We have enjoyed a long and productive working relationship
with Alstom, and look forward to collaborating with them and leveraging our
air cooled condenser technology to establish a state-of-the-art cooling
solution for Israel's new Tzafit power plant."

According to Israel's Ministry of Energy and Water Resources, electricity
consumption in Israel is expected to double in the next 20 years as a result
of population growth, rising living standards and climate changes. Due to its
location at the intersection of Israel's national electricity grid, the Tzafit
combined cycle power plant is expected to feed additional electricity to the
northern and southern sections of the grid, and thereby increase the
reliability of the overall electricity supply.

Diminishing water resources and increased water pollution concerns have led to
the growth of dry cooling systems worldwide. An air cooled condenser is made
of modules arranged in parallel rows, with each module containing a number of
fin tube bundles. An axial flow, forced-draft fan located in each module
forces the cooling air across the heat exchange area of the fin tubes. This
technology allows for the elimination of water usage from the condensing power
cycle, as well as flexibility in power plant site selection and decreased time
required for plant permitting.

and hybrid cooling towers and solutions, air-cooled condensers, heat
exchangers, air and flue gas systems and filter systems. These technologies
