KSB Group Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended 31 March 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2014

KSB Group reported consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended 31 March 2014. For the quarter, the company received orders worth €566.5 million against €520.1 million a year ago. Sales revenue was €490.9 million against €512.3 million a year ago. The company generated positive earnings before taxes, which however lagged behind those of the comparative prior-year period due to the lower sales revenue. The net financial position improved further compared with the 2013 year-end figure. In 2014 the Group plans to increase order intake, sales revenue and earnings before taxes (EBT) year on year. The goal of improving earnings (2013: 119.4 million) involves a series of cost-cutting measures including a more intense focus on global material procurement and a socially responsible reduction of the headcount in Germany.

These power stations are being designed to use twice-heated boiler technology, the only technology of its kind in the world which is capable of handling the higher temperature and pressure requirements for power plant boilers. The boiler recirculation pumps from the LUVAk series are designed for a pressure of 400 bar and an operating temperature of 425 °C. The pumps are driven by high-voltage motors with supply voltages of 6,000 volts and 10,000 volts and a drive rating of around 800 kW.
