Optimizing combustion processes throughout Europe

Combustion inefficiencies, slagging, and elevated emissions of NOX and CO are common problems resulting from imbalances in coal-fired power plant boilers. Laborelec uses mobile EUtech EUflame 2D sensors, a two-dimensional temperature measurement system, to visualize such imbalances and optimize the combustion process. The sensors were already successfully implemented in various power plants in Belgium, Germany, and other European countries.

Why witnessing matters

Pushing the OEM to further investigate

A neutral, external expert witness can steer a root cause analysis (RCA) in the right direction. The Sohar Power Plant in Oman asked Laborelec to witness the RCA of a crack in the generator retaining ring in order to obtain an objective second opinion. Pushing the manufacturer to investigate every detail of the case was necessary to strengthen the insurance case, among other things.
