  • Experience in boiler design

    The Taganrog boilermaking factory Krasny Kotelshchik has extensive experience in the design and operation of boilers using fuels that have traditionally been regarded as difficult to use in the power industry, such as anthracite and anthracite fines, Ekibastuz coal and lignite.

  • The high engineering level of boiler design is ensured by
    • company engineers’ participation in the testing and commissioning of boiler units and their components, local equipment examination at power plants;
    • hydraulic, aerodynamic and strength testing of full-scale models of critical equipment components at the factory’s benches;
    • aerodynamic research using physical models;
    • geometric 3D modeling of various boiler systems;
    • multivariant calculations utilizing mathematical modeling and design analysis using a super computer.
  • Boiler equipment designed for TPPs has the following features
    • high efficiency and the potential for its increase;
    • a proven design base including the existing capabilities of the manufacture and delivery of high-pressure (HP) boilers, supercritical-pressure (SCP) boilers and super-SCP boilers with initial level performance;
    • the potential for further development in promising areas (circulating fluidized bed (CFB), etc.), combined with other technologies (combined-cycle units, gas generation);
    • a proven process and material base (steels, tubes, forgings) including the existing capabilities of the manufacture and delivery of HP boilers, SCP and super-SCP boilers with further development in promising areas;
    • the capability for integrated work on the improvement of all steam-boiler components as the main parts of steam turbine units to increase cost-effectiveness and reduce the costs of auxiliary equipment operation;
    • the potential for further increase in the single unit capacity of steam boiler units, power units and thermal power plants as a whole;
    • the potential for the use of new technologies for combustion chamber and other boiler processes;
    • the potential for the use of boiler units in various combinations with gas turbine technologies, in various types and designs of combined-cycle (CCGT) units (ranging from CCGT units with GT gas discharge to solid fuel boilers to the design of a CC unit with gas generation using solid fuel and with an HRSG downstream for the gas turbine).

    The entire boiler unit conforms to the strictest international requirements and Russian quality standards and has all the certificates and permits necessary for commissioning according to the requirements of the regulatory authorities of the Russian Federation.

  • A heat-recovery steam generator with natural circulation boasts the following advantages
    • does not require circulation pumps for HRSG start-up and operation;
    • reduces balance-of-plant power consumption;
    • requires fewer spare parts and less maintenance;
    • the boiler design is highly modular;
    • utilizes a lightweight modular structure;
    • self-supporting stack and a self-supporting stair tower adjacent to the boiler;
    • the horizontal structure with natural circulation is compact and has dimensions similar to those of vertical boilers. At the same time, horizontal boilers are more cost-effective, more reliable and easier to maintain.

    The compact dimensions of a horizontal HRSG allow it to be installed within the dimensions of a vertical HRSG, which makes the boilers a universal solution for the customer – even if construction or modernization operations take place in limited space conditions.

  • Afterburner use

    The use of an afterburner makes it possible to ensure the required steam parameters downstream of the HRSG if these parameters are not ensured by gas-turbine exhaust gases due to climatic or seasonal conditions or gas-turbine-type specifics.

  • Automated boiler diagnostics system (ABDS)

    Main design modules and boiler components operating under pressure and requiring special monitoring are selected for diagnostics. “High-temperature” and “low-temperature” boiler components are regarded separately. The difference between unheated and heated components is also taken into account. The ABDS enables the diagnostics of the entire boiler.
