Illustrations of our experience and know-how

An oil fired steam plant with severe emission problems called for an urgent solution. The utility client had been recommended a complete combustion system replacement by several OEMs. With CPS a route towards a much more cost effective solution has been made possible:

  • By advanced simulations (CFD) and engineering analysis the original combustion system was examined to identify the reason behind the poor performance of the combustion process.
  • CPS was able to determine the aerodynamic mechanisms associated with the original burner system responsible for the high emissions. CPS proposed a cost-effective and elegant modification of the burners.
  • With the burner modification the emission targets were achieved and black stack from plant was completely eliminated. The implementation was made at a fraction of the cost proposed by the OEMs.
