Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) has announced that its B&W Thermal segment will will design and supply industry leading low-nitrogen oxide (NOX) combustion technology and an innovative pulveriser system upgrades for Taiwan Power Co.’s Taichung Power Plant in Longjing District, Taichung, Taiwan. The contracts total more than US$15 million.
Four of the plant’s boilers were supplied by B&W in the 1990s. B&W Thermal will upgrade the combustion system for one unit, providing its custom-engineered AireJet® low-NOX burners. They offer significantly reduced NOX levels compared to other low-NOX combustion technology, burning cleaner, with high boiler efficiency and improved plant heat rate. B&W Thermal will also convert the existing pulveriser systems on two units from B&W-89 to B&W-92 pulverisers to provide additional fuel grinding capability and efficiency, and will also provide DSVS rotating classifiers and associated equipment as part of these pulveriser system upgrades.
“B&W Thermal has a long and strong relationship with Taiwan Power Co. and is pleased to provide this customer with our latest offering in low-NOX burner technology – the AireJet burner, which offers a proven solution to lower emissions and improve plant efficiency,” said Jimmy Morgan, B&W Chief Operating Officer. “As the original equipment provider for these units nearly three decades ago, we’re looking forward to bringing new technology solutions to this plant, and to helping our customer continue to generate reliable and affordable power, while also reducing emissions.”
Engineering is underway at B&W’s Akron headquarters, Ohio, US, and equipment delivery is scheduled for spring 2021.
