Siemens to provide condensate polishing system for new power plant in India
Warrendale, Pennsylvania, USA, 2011-Sep-15
Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction has awarded Siemens Water Technologies with a contract to provide a condensate polisher package with external regeneration facility to GMR Chhattisgarh Energy Private Limited. The polishers will be used at the 1,370-megawatt Raipur Super Thermal Power Plant in the state of Chhattisgarh, India, which is being built to increase power generation capacity in the district. Siemens will design, engineer and fabricate the condensate polisher system, which is currently scheduled for start-up in June 2014.
For the Raipur power plant, Siemens Water Technologies will provide six condensate polishers that will treat over 3,100 m3/hr of return condensate. Condensate is formed when the steam from the boiler cools. To reuse it, impurities such as metal oxides, trace ionic impurities and silica have to be removed by condensate polishers. They help to improve and maintain the boiler feed water chemistry. The system will increase the likelihood that the power plant will stay online during small to moderate condenser leaks. The exhausted resins will be transferred and regenerated in a Fullsep external regeneration system that allows separation of the resins with minimum cross-contamination, thus assisting the customer in maintaining consistent high-quality water.
Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction is a multi-billion-dollar Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) company and a global leader in the power and water business. GMR Chhattisgarh Energy Private Limited is a subsidiary of the GMR Group, and has been developing power plants of over 8,000 megawatt capacity.
