Siemens to provide condensate polishing system for new power plant in India

15.09.2011
Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction has awarded Siemens Water Technologies with a contract to provide a condensate polisher package with external regeneration facility to GMR Chhattisgarh Energy Private Limited.

The polishers will be used at the 1,370-megawatt Raipur Super Thermal Power Plant in the state of Chhattisgarh, India, which is being built to increase power generation capacity in the district. Siemens will design, engineer and fabricate the condensate polisher system, which is currently scheduled for start-up in June 2014.

For the Raipur power plant, Siemens Water Technologies will provide six condensate polishers that will treat over 3,100 m3/hr of return condensate. Condensate is formed when the steam from the boiler cools.

To reuse it, impurities such as metal oxides, trace ionic impurities and silica have to be removed by condensate polishers. They help to improve and maintain the boiler feed water chemistry.

The system will increase the likelihood that the power plant will stay online during small to moderate condenser leaks. The exhausted resins will be transferred and regenerated in a Fullsep external regeneration system that allows separation of the resins with minimum crosscontamination, thus assisting the customer in maintaining consistent high-quality water.

Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction is a multi-billion-dollar Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) company and a global leader in the power and water business. GMR Chhattisgarh Energy Private Limited is a subsidiary of the GMR Group, and has been developing power plants of over 8,000 megawatt capacity.

Fullsep is a trademark of Siemens and/or its affiliates in some countries.

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
