Thanks to their construction features, John Cockerill’s vertical heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) are naturally well fitted for cycling operations and provide optimal performance during frequent start-ups and shut-downs.
Optimized erection time, resources and costs savings
When projects involve reduced footprint, vertical gas flow HRSGs across serpentine heat exchangers and with no superheater quenching are ideal. A vertical design facilitates internal accessibility, which improves maintainability and reduces generator maintenance costs. In addition, our vertical HRSG modules offer a high level of prefabrication, allowing hydrotest in workshops and easier and cost-effective erection with hydraulic lifting instead of using large cranes.
One of our latest innovative solutions is our vertical design applied to the Once Through Boiler technology. Without any high-pressure drum, they guarantee optimized increasing pressure power, high efficiency and the ability to support unlimited daily cycling, while being more economical.
