Rueil-Malmaison, 27 February, 2017
STEIN ENERGY, a subsidiary of AIT-STEIN GROUP, European leader in water tube and fire tube boilers, today announced the delivery of a boiler weighing nearly 70 tonnes.
This enormous boiler, designed and manufactured in STEIN ENERGY’s workshops, will soon be installed in Lommel, Belgium, on the site of one of our food industry customers specialising in the industrial processing of potatoes into various derived products.
10.5 metres long, 4 metres wide and 4 metres high, it is designed to recover combustion fumes generated by a gas turbine in cogeneration mode. These fumes can be burned again with the burner (post combustion) to produce 36.5 t/h of saturated steam.
On the same boiler, it is also possible to switch to emergency operation by replacing the fumes with fresh air to produce the same amount of steam.
This exceptional convoy will arrive on site at the end of February and the assembly phase on site will last between 2 and 3 weeks, followed by a 4-week commissioning phase.
