Struthers Wells, a unit of Thermal Engineering International Inc., will supply booster heaters with low nitrogen oxide (NOx) burners to a concentrated solar power plant in the Middle East.
Struthers Wells will supply two booster heaters, each one capable of supplying half of the total steam requirement to the steam generator. Each unit will receive a single low NOx burner, firing either natural gas or fuel oil. The systems will also use flue gas recirculation for more NOx control. The heaters will be used during low solar radiant times
to help increase the temperature of the steam entering the generator.
Additional scope of work includes: combustion air and FGR fans, control system, integral piping, instrumentation, and field service.
As part of a separate contract, Struthers Wells will also be supplying seven heat transfer fluid (HTF) heaters, which help maintain the heat transfer fluid temperature for the plant
