A leading paper manufacturing company in the UAE installs Thermax’s chiller-heater

Thermax has successfully commissioned one chiller-heater of 600 TR at Al Dhafra Paper Manufacturing Company LLC, a part of M.A.H.Y. Khoory Group in the UAE. Being one among the most trusted and recognised names in the UAE, M.A.H.Y. Khoory Group is a well-known trading firm that has a strong foothold in the UAE industrial market. A leader in the regional market, the M.A.H.Y. Khoory Group, is a diverse group of companies and business units that bring world-class technology products and services to their clients.

Incepted in the year 2010, Al Dhafra Paper Manufacturing LLC has carved a niche for themselves in Abu Dhabi and has managed to garner utmost client satisfaction. In line with the M.A.H.Y. Khoory Group’s business philosophy of continuous growth, Al Dhafra Paper Manufacturing Company was set up in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi to cater to the growing global demand for recycled containerboard. Al Dhafra Paper Manufacturing converts waste paper into recycled testliner and fluting medium to cater to the packaging industry in the UAE and other international markets. Producing 650 tonnes of recycled paper everyday, Al Dhafra Paper mill is fully accredited to the highest standards of environmental and technical safety and is regularly updated to stay on par with the cutting-edge technology.

Extending commitment and dedication towards the environment, Al Dhafra Paper has adopted Thermax’s smart and sustainable solution over the traditional method for their comfort cooling requirement. Thermax’s energy efficient chiller-heater has replaced the existing electrical chiller at Al Dhafra Paper manufacturing facility and has resulted in saving 4.81 million units of electricity annually. Also, this has helped in reducing the carbon emissions by 3,302 tonnes which is equivalent to planting 3,30,240 trees annually.

Thermax’s chiller-heater of 600 TR produces chilled water at 6.6oC, which is circulated through the Air Handling Units (AHUs) catering to their comfort cooling requirements in office buildings, production plant building, panel rooms and drive rooms. Steam, the driving heat source for the chiller-heater is produced using two Thermax’s natural gas fired boiler of capacity 35 TPH each. The chiller-heater consumes 2.6 TPH of steam and the balance steam is used in the paper manufacturing process, resulting in zero waste of steam.

The chiller-heater also produces hot water at 90oC, which is used as feed water for the boilers. The boiler is fed with partially heated water, which reduces the consumption of natural gas. 

Project Highlights

Customer AI Dhafra Paper, UAE
Product: One Steam-driven chiller heater
Capacity: 600 TR
Application: Process Cooling/Comfort Cooling

Thermax’s high-efficiency chiller-heater is a lithium bromide-based vapour absorption machine producing chilled and hot water for either cooling or heating as well as both simultaneously. The chiller-heater provides maximum heating capacity in simultaneous cooling and heating mode 75-80% of the cooling load. That is, for every 100 kW of cooling, up to 75 kW of heating can be generated.

Chiller-heater in the UAE

The Absorption Cooling & Heating division’s 600 TR chiller-heater has replaced the existing electrical chiller at the Al Dhafra Paper Manufacturing Company LLC in the UAE. Thermax’s installation has resulted in saving 4.81 million units of electricity annually for the customer and has also helped them in reducing carbon emissions by 3,302 tonnes, equivalent to planting 3,30,240 trees per annum. The energy-efficient chiller-heater produces chilled water at 6.6°C, which is circulated through the Air Handling Units (AHUs) to aircondition office buildings, production plant building, panel rooms and drive rooms. The hot water produced at 90°C is used as feed water for the boilers, resulting in the reduction of heat required in the steam generation process. Steam, which is the driving heat source for the chiller-heater, is produced using two Thermax’s natural gas-fired boilers of capacity 35 TPH each.

Thermax’s sunshine spreads to the Philippines

The Solar Power business commissioned its first ever international project comprising a 152 KWp rooftop solar photovoltaic system for one of the packaging giants in the Philippines. This captive power system from Thermax is slated to reduce the client’s dependence on the grid and meet 12% of their electricity demand while bringing down 137 tonnes of CO2 e annually. Collaborative efforts between the Solar Power and International Business Group led to this modest beginning in the global solar arena. 

Thermax and Bataan 2020, a decade of partnership

 It was a decade ago when Thermax received its first overseas power plant order of 12.5 megawatt (MW) from Bataan 2020, a leading manufacturer of fine paper, board and tissues in the Philippines. Through the years, Thermax’s on-time delivery, industry accolades received by the customer for the plant and continuous service support resulted in a repeat order of a 25 MW captive cogeneration plant. 

The Power division recently commissioned the captive cogen plant for Bataan 2020’s paper unit located in Samaal, the Philippines on an EPC basis. Inaugurated on 24th September this year, the plant generates power and steam for the process using a 145 TPH AFBC boiler that fires either 100% Indonesian coal or with 20% rice husk / wood chips / pelletised biomass. Apart from the boiler, the scope of supply includes a steam turbine generator (STG) with water cooled condenser, ESP for the AFBC boiler, water treatment plant, main cooling tower and various material handling as well as control systems.

Danstoker commissions boilers in Abu Dhabi

Thermax’s European subsidiary, Danstoker has made inroads into the Middle Eastern markets. In June 2017, it commissioned two 40 TPH boilers at a manufacturing plant of the Al Dhafrah Paper Manufacturing Company LLC, in Abu Dhabi. The boilers which use natural gas as fuel generate steam at 12 bar each. They were manufactured at Danstoker’s facility in Germany. Earlier, Danstoker also supplied a 43 TPH boiler to Solar Technologies in Qatar, which is expected to be commissioned in April 2018.
