Clyde Bergemann India has clinched orders to install efficiency equipment into seven new 660 MW supercritical boiler units in India.

The contracts have been awarded by L&T-MHPS and Doosan Power Systems and come as a result of Clyde Bergemann’s previous work with both companies.

Clyde Bergemann fitted boiler cleaning equipment in 11 units of supercritical boilers (660 / 700 MW) for L&T-MHPS, and has now won the order for sootblower packages for the 3 x 660 MW Ghatampur project.

Similarly, following a successful sootblower package installation for Doosan for the 3 x 660 MW Barh-I project, it will now fit sootblower packages for the 2 x 660 MW Jawaharpur and 2 x 660 MW Obra C projects.

For the Ghatampur project, Clyde Bergemann India will manufacture and supply wall deslaggers to clean the furnace walls, bearing temperatures of up to 1600 °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 will start later this year and the work is expected to be completed by December 2019.

For the Jawaharpur and Obra C projects, Clyde Bergemann India will also make and supply wall deslaggers, long retractable sootblowers and additionally furnace temperature probes. Clyde Bergemann manufactures heavy-duty furnace temperature probes, which are installed in boilers for reliable measurement of the furnace exit gas temperature, an important parameter for monitoring the boiler operation and performance. For these, supplies will commence in early 2019 and will be completed by October 2019.

“I am very happy that we have been once again able to win the confidence of our major customers, who have reposed their trust on Clyde Bergemann with repeat orders and continuing business relationship”, said Pankaj Malhotra, managing director of Clyde Bergemann India. “Clyde Bergemann India is very well positioned to cater to the Indian market with Clyde Bergemann technologies that make an important contribution to optimised & efficient energy conversion and production processes.”
