Happy Customers | Tapped for Aspen | PROs of COs
Happy Customers: nothing can be (re)finer
Exceeding customer expectations is (or should be) every supplier’s ultimate goal. So when B&W SPIG was named a Best Supplier by one of our largest petrochemical customers, we took immense pride in the honor. Saudi Arabia-based Petro Rabigh recognized us for “outstanding performance, commitment and continued support” as a supplier of cooling tower upgrades and other services to its hydrocarbon and refinery projects around the world.
Tapped for Aspen
Our industrial water-tube boilers were selected for use in Imperial’s Aspen oil sands project in Alberta, Canada. Five units, each featuring our exclusive multi-circulation boiler technology, will provide steam for the refiner’s steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) bitumen extraction operation.
PROs of COs
The operation of a fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCCU), depending on its arrangement, produces gases rich in carbon monoxide (CO). Take advantage of this energy source contained in these gases by utilizing a CO boiler to generate steam. These boilers can be either field-erected for those refineries generating large quantities of boilers, or shop assembled for lower gas applications.
Learn more about how a CO boiler can reclaim this energy to provide steam for power or process applications, or how your current CO boiler can be modified for new process conditions.
A strong pipeline of services
As an extension to any jobsite team, B&W’s skilled and willing personnel are often called upon to help with project management, site supervision, start-up and commissioning activities. Our turnaround services can assist throughout project execution with:
- Detailed scheduling of tasks and milestones
- Resource loadings
- Cost reporting and reconciliation
- Critical path management
- Earned value reporting
- And more.
We utilize proven methodologies to reduce risk, costs and project span.
Did you know?
B&W began the design and manufacturing of CO boilers for recovering waste heat in the operation of catalyst crackers in 1954. Along with other package and specialty industrial boilers which burn a wide range of fossil and waste fuels, we have engineered and installed more than 5000 units worldwide.
