Thermax has conducted condition assessment studies and efficiency upgrades on over 200 utility captive power and cogeneration boilers in india and south east asia. The services are now extended to the middle east and east europe. Typically a 20 year old boiler can work efficiently for another 20 years after engineering studies and reconditioning. thermax s service specialists retrofitted three 55 years old boilers at a rumanian soda ash plant with hi efficiency low emission burners. After the retrofit the efficiency of the boilers has improved from 70 to 84 with a daily saving of 48 600 standard cubic metres of natural gas. retrofit services also cater to new boilers that need to shift to more economical fuels. Thermax retrofitted jindal steel and power s boilers to use blast furnace gas as fuel and generate an additional 11 mw of electricity. At nestle s plant in philipp
the bureau of energy efficiency (bee) has selected thermax as one its empanelled energy services company (esco). bee the nodal agency under the ministry of power to promote energy efficiency measures in the country has created the panel to implement energy conservation in buildings and facilities. The empanelled organizations including thermax were subsequently evaluated by sebi approved agencies for accreditation. Crisil has awarded thermax grade 2 rating which indicates 'high' capability to undertake energy efficiency projects. thermax has been conducting energy audits and implementing efficiency improvement programme for a host of industries including textiles pharma chemical laminate food and machine tools. For greenfield projects thermax offers consultancy in the design of efficient systems for generation distribution and use of energy.
thermax has introduced a new energy rental service. Through this service instead of investing in a boiler for its steam requirements industry can buy steam from thermax at per unit cost. The scheme saves industries the hassles of owning running and maintaining boilers and other utility equipment a turnkey solution with no capital investment. a textile plant of a sri lankan chinese joint venture is already trying out this concept with thermax at its vizag unit. Thermax will ensure uninterrupted supply of steam by installing three 5 ton per hour boilers. The boilers are designed to burn rice husk as fuel but can also use imported coal in case there s a shortage of husk. Thermax would also take care of systems for water treatment and boiler emissions and through tie ups with vendors ensure steady fuel availability. industries opting for energy rental scheme will be insulate
a part of its growing business of facility energy management services (fems) thermax offers a range of standard and customized steam accessories to extend its energy conservation support. Thermax has created an impressive list of clients for this business in india the middle east south east asia and saarc countries. the products include various types of steam traps flow metres pressure reducing stations condensate recovery systems and deaerators. Steam traps help in draining away the condensate that takes up space in the flow pipes improving the efficiency of steam distribution. Flow metres calibrate the precise amount of steam requirement in each process within the plant. Deaerators remove dissolved gases and prevent corrosion of process equipment improving overall energy management. pressure reducing stations underline the sound thermal engineering practice of generating
thermax solutions help meerut based daurala organics to check pollution and in the process achieve better resource productivity. The pharma intermediate manufacturing company faced the problem of treating waste water containing high levels of phenol a toxic chemical commonly used by chemical units. Thermax made use of the versatile polymeric adsorbent resin developed by chemical r d for daurala to treat the waste and recover phenol for reuse in its processes. The project also helps daurala to gain better process economy while developing its products. at hindustan zinc s lead making unit in chittorgarh sulphur dioxide (so2) from the gas treatment plant is removed with the help of proprietary amines a chemical. As the so2 removal gets under way impurities degrade the amine solvent and this leads to operational problems. With thermax s ion exchange process equipment hindustan zi
the operations maintenance (o m) group of thermax power is expanding its client list as more industries outsource the function to focus on their core areas. The group is now servicing 13 captive plants comprising 19 units doing o m work accounting for 525 mw. the thermax o m team manages fuel water and conditioning chemicals that can critically affect power cost. Maintaining ambient air quality a statutory requirement is also part of the contract. its recent orders include o m for an 80 mw captive power plant of hindustan zinc s mining operations and for a captive plant of sangam india a spinning mill. Both rajasthan based orders are to take care of o m in power plants built by thermax competitors. The hindustan zinc plant has a pulverised coal fired boiler and turbine both supplied by bhel.
