Fives successfully performs a remote commissioning to replace a competitor’s burner
Due to the travel restrictions linked to the health crisis, this commissioning was carried out remotely with the cooperation of the customer.
The 143 MW coal/petcoke Pillard NOVAFLAM® Evolution burner with oil as start-up was supplied as a replacement for an old competitor's burner. The aim of this replacement was to increase the kiln capacity to 9,000 tpd without impacting its NOx emissions whilst maintaining a good clinker quality despite a high sulfur content in the petcoke.
The installation is now in production and an intervention is planned in the coming weeks to further optimize the operation.
