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.

The building blocks of matter in our universe were formed in the first 10 microseconds of its existence, according to the currently accepted scientific picture. After the Big Bang about 13.7 billion years ago, matter consisted mainly of quarks and gluons, two types of elementary particles whose interactions are governed by quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of strong interaction. In the early universe, these particles moved (nearly) freely in a quark-gluon plasma.

Thin-film solar cells made of crystalline silicon are inexpensive and achieve efficiencies of a good 14 percent. However, they could do even better if their shiny surfaces reflected less light. A team led by Prof. Christiane Becker from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) has now patented a sophisticated new solution to this problem.
"It is not enough simply to bring more light into the cell," says Christiane Becker. Such surface structures can even ultimately reduce the efficiency by...
A study in the journal Bulletin of Marine Science describes a new, blood-red species of octocoral found in Panama. The species in the genus Thesea was discovered in the threatened low-light reef environment on Hannibal Bank, 60 kilometers off mainland Pacific Panama, by researchers at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama (STRI) and the Centro de Investigación en Ciencias del Mar y Limnología (CIMAR) at the University of Costa Rica.
Scientists established the new species, Thesea dalioi, by comparing its physical traits, such as branch thickness and the bright red colony color, with the...
