The condenser was cleaned on-line, one half at a time, thus allowing the plant to continue operating and maintain its electricity generating revenue of approx. £10,000 per day.
Following the clean, the generator’s output has gone from 9.3 to 12.4MW/hr and is the best performance it has yielded for some considerable time. As a result, Tube Tech expects to be recalled to carry out the same work again during the next outage.
The client commented: “The Tube Tech team did a really good job, without a doubt; they were conscientious and worked hard. I had never seen the DarTTs that were used to clean the tubes before, but they certainly were very effective. The team completed the job faster than I expected, especially considering the size of the condenser doors and the work involved in their removal. Tube Tech worked so quickly, our people had started re-attaching the first door while we were still getting ready to remove the second one. The Tube Tech team took an awful lot of scale out and cleaned it up so we could dispose of it. When we have to clean the condenser again, I will certainly be in touch with Tube Tech.”
