RJM International, a provider of emissions reduction solutions and equipment to the power generation, has announced that is has secured a major contract to replace all 48 burners on a unit at the Ferrybridge coal power generation plant in West Yorkshire.
The multi-million pound contract agrees to install 48 of RJM’s Ultra-Low NOx Burners at Unit 4 of SSE’s Ferrybridge C power generation plant in the north of England, together with modifications to the Over-Fire Air system. The replacement is due to take place during the planned outage over a four month period next summer, with the unit returning to full generation capability once testing is completed in October 2014.
This is the second major contract for RJM at Ferrybridge. It builds on the work completed by the company on Unit 3 in 2010-11 when it was contracted to identify the causes of a number of combustion issues, including long flames and high levels of carbon monoxide.
Beginning with a detailed site survey and then building three separate CFD models, RJM International was able to identify the processes taking place during combustion and consequently was able to make recommendations to address the issues.
“The Unit 3 project was completed in October 2011 and has been running reliably since that date,” said John Goldring, Managing Director of RJM.
“Having been working closely with the plant operators at Ferrybridge for over three years now, we were also aware of the challenges they have been facing with Unit 4, in particular the additional work that they would need to carry out to meet the new 2016 Round 3 NOx limit of 200 mg/Nm3,” he added.
“Unit 4 is similar to Unit 3, so we are confident that once we have installed the 48 new Ultra-Low NOx RJM Burners on Unit 4, it will not only exceed performance expectations but that it will also provide increased operational flexibility over current performance,” confirmed Goldring.
