Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has implemented a boiler cleaning process for coal-fired thermal units, at NTPC’s 3 x 660 MW North Karanpura Super Thermal Power Project, being executed by BHEL on an engineering, procurement and construction basis.
The boiler commissioning cycle will reduce from 100 days to 80 days by successfully completing the main ‘boiler acid cleaning’ without its light-up, by using an auxiliary boiler. This method is a major change in the commissioning process followed so far and will aid in early synchronisation of the unit.
Significantly, the process now successfully proven at the North Karanpura project has paved the way to be adopted at other projects being executed by BHEL. The company declared 2020 as the Year of Transformation and has taken a slew of initiatives across various functions including for achievement of long-term EPC excellence and the above success is another step in this direction.
