“Significant savings have been realised without large preceding capital expenditure. In addition, the new boiler operations have not been a distraction of plant management, allowing everyone to focus on their core functions,” – Piet Burger, Supply Chain Executive.
DATE: Commissioned in 2014
LOCATION: Wadeville, Gauteng
NOMINAL POWER: 8T/h boilers
TECHNOLOGY USED: Reconditioned fire-tube boiler, with EP’s advanced boiler control system with online monitoring.
FUNDING OPTION: Multi-year steam outsource agreement, whereby EP owns, operates and maintains the boiler plant and sells steam to the client on a Rand/ton basis.
Energy Partners identified the opportunity to significantly reduce steam costs for the Ceres Fruit Juices facility in Wadeville, by switching the primary boiler fuel from HFO to Coal. A reconditioned package boiler was sourced and installed, together with EP’s proprietary boiler control system, which incorporates remote monitoring.
