Continuing on from Clyde Bergemann India’s successful implementation of boiler cleaning equipment in 11 units of Supercritical Boilers (660 / 700 MW) for L&T-MHPS, L&T-MHPS have recently entrusted Clyde Bergemann India with sootblower package orders for the 3 x 660 MW Ghatampur project. Similarly, following the successful execution of the sootblower package order for 3 x 660 MW Barh-I project, Doosan Power Systems India have reposed their confidence in Clyde Bergemann technology by awarding sootblower package orders for the 2 x 660 MW Jawaharpur and 2 x 660 MW Obra C projects.
For the Ghatampur project, Clyde Bergemann India is going to manufacture & supply wall deslaggers to clean the furnace walls, bearing temperatures of up to 1,600 °C and long retractable sootblowers for use in the superheater and reheater areas with heavy fouling. To clean the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) units, Clyde Bergemann India will manufacture and supply Rake type sootblowers which are the most suitable cleaning devices for this application. Rake sootblowers consist of a blowing rake equipped with cross-arms having nozzles. For cleaning, the nozzles are optimally aimed at the baskets of catalytic elements. The blowing rake moves axially in the flue gas path during its cleaning cycle.
Supplies for the project shall commence from the latter half of 2018 and shall be completed by December 2019.
For Jawaharpur and Obra C projects, Clyde Bergemann India will also manufacture and supply wall deslaggers, long retractable sootblowers and additionally furnace temperature probes. Clyde Bergemann manufactures sturdy and heavy-duty furnace temperature probes, which are installed in boilers for reliable measurement of the FEGT (furnace exit gas temperature), an important parameter for monitoring the boiler operation and performance.
For both the projects, supplies will commence in early 2019 and will be completed by October 2019.
