AS:SCAN has received its largest electrical boiler order to date, as two 40MW PARAT Halvorsen high-voltage electrode hot water boilers are sold to a large Danish customer.
The boilers will serve as peak units and back-up units, but could form part of the network regulating market in the long term. The sale is a collaboration between AS:SCAN and Tjæreborg Industry, and it is precisely this cooperation and our turnkey solution that satisfies the customer.
High demands for reliability make the project more challenging than usual, but AS:SCAN and Tjæreborg Industry see this as positive, as many competitors drop out early in the process.
PARAT’s IEH electrode boiler has been designed and developed by PARAT Halvorsen’s in-house engineers and manufactured in its workshop in Norway for more than 20 years, to a compact design of up to 50MW in a single unit.
It allows users to switch from cold to full load in less than 15 minutes, with 30 seconds from minimum (less than 2%) to full load. Significantly, there is no current to earth, no electrode wear and the boiler requires only minimum maintenance.
Power from wind and solar energy can be used in the boiler for steam or hot water purposes. Hot water can be stored during peak production periods, and used when needed in district heating.
PARAT’s remote monitoring system enables web-based remote monitoring of the boiler plant from anywhere in the world. This also includes online troubleshooting and upgrades of the control software from the PARAT Halvorsen AS service centre in Norway.
Another significant feature is that the electrode boiler system can be delivered in a complete turnkey boiler house.
