Korach Industry Company Limited, a Thai sugar major, trusted Thermax for achieving its pollution control mark. The Enviro team installed two Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs) for 2 x 200 TPH travelling grate boilers, thereby maintaining emission levels well below the stipulated regulatory norms. The boilers were commissioned by the Boiler & Heater division of Thermax in 2018, being its largest installation in Thailand till date.
Victorias Milling Company Inc., a publicly listed company in the Philippines, produces integrated raw and refined sugar. Founded in 1919, they enjoy the repute of being among the earliest modern sugar mills in the country.
Thermax has successfully commissioned a Boiler Turbine Generator (BTG) cogeneration biomass power plant for the customer comprising a 200 TPH, 110 ata, 540°C bagasse fired travelling grate boiler along with Balance of Plant. The plant supplies steam and power to the sugar and refinery factory and also provides clean green energy to the grid. The scope of the project included design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, civil works, construction and commissioning of the 40 MW cogeneration biomass plant.
Thermax’s B&H business has consolidated its presence in the South East Asian market with 140 units supplied to region’s sugar industry. Recently, it commissioned 2 x 200 TPH high-pressure boilers at the Thai sugar major, Korach Industry Company Limited. The boilers are the highest capacity units that Thermax has supplied in Thailand. The scope of contract comprised design, engineering, manufacturing, commissioning and supervision of construction done by a Thai contractor.
The single drum top-supported travelling grate boilers use bagasse and wood chips as fuel. Along with auxiliaries, they are installed at Korach’s 65 MW cogeneration plant located at Nakornsawan Province,Thailand, generating steam for the sugar mills and captive power for the entire complex. Excess electricity produced will be sold to the national grid (EGAT) under a power purchase agreement.
In January 2018, the Enviro team of Thermax commissioned an Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) for checking the emissions at a boiler installation site of Thailand’s Mitr Phol group, Asia’s leading sugar and bioenergy producer. The ESP was part of an order that Thermax won in 2016 for design, supply, erection and commissioning of a 175 TPH high pressure traveling grate boiler and auxiliaries. The boiler had been commissioned earlier, and the ESP handles a gas volume of 4,89,000 m3 /day. This is the sixth ESP order that Thermax has won from Mitr Phol.
