Thermax CFBC boilers at a large petrochemical complex in Gujarat has recorded 600+ days of continuous, uninterrupted operation
We are proud to share that one of the Thermax CFBC boilers at a large petrochemical complex in Gujarat has recorded 600+ days of continuous, uninterrupted operation. This is perhaps the longest operation of any CFBC boiler, globally!
The Thermax Babcock and Wilcox Energy Solutions (TBWES) O&M team has been providing services to a total of 5 units of 500 TPH, 121 bar(g), 535 degree C, IR-CFBC boilers at the customer’s plant.
Owing to the challenge faced by industries in terms of availability of skilled and competent service expertise, our team works closely with the customer to improve performance, reliability, cost of operations, coupled with value-added services such as fuel advisory, smart maintenance, spares optimisation, preventive and predictive insights, plant automation, shutdown support, and implementing the best operation and maintenance practices, to deliver safe, reliable and high-performance boiler operations on a sustainable basis.
Precisely for this project, we also supported the customer to consume various coals (Indonesian, South African, Australian and Russian) and enhance the commercial operations of the units. To ease the operational challenges of such a large steam generation complex, all the units were put on automatic control.
We thank our customer for entrusting us with this opportunity. This milestone also reinforces the faith reposed by many of our customers in the Thermax IR – CFBC Boilers, with ‘U’ beam particle separation technology.
