IFRF Member RJM International has secured a major contract to replace all 48 burners on Unit 4 at SSE’s Ferrybridge C power generation plant in West Yorkshire, in the North of England. The multi-million pound contract to install 48 of RJM’s proprietary Ultra-Low NOx Burners, together with modifications to the Over-Fire Air system, is scheduled to take place during the planned outage in the summer of 2014 over a four month period, with the 500MWe unit returning to full generation capability once testing is completed in October 2014.
This is the second major contract win for RJM at Ferrybridge. In 2010 RJM performed a detailed onsite survey, building three separate CFD models (single burner; full furnace and full furnace plus superheater and reheater model), in order to identify the causes of various combustion problems including long flames, very high levels of CO and excessive build-up of slag in the furnace.
The client ordered a full refit for 48 RJM Ultra-Low NOx Burners to be installed on Unit 3, with some supplementary work to be carried out by RJM on the existing BOFA ports. The project was completed in October 2011 and has run reliably since that date.
