Helping a cement company in MP to generate power from waste heat
Cement plants in India are aiming for higher efficiency and profitability in their operations. One of the ways to achieve this is to use waste heat from operations for power generation. A pioneer in waste heat recovery based power plants, Thermax has begun work on a captive power plant at Maihar, Madhya Pradesh for a cement manufacturer, a group company of Birla Corporation Limited. The Rs. 98 crore project will harness waste heat of the cement plant to generate 12.25 MW power. The scope of the project includes boilers, turbine, air cool condenser, ducting, civil, electrical control and instrumentation, and other accessories. For this EPC project, Thermax will install a space-saving vertical preheater boiler. The project is expected to be commissioned by the end of 2018.
