The Rs 100-crore Thermax Babcock & Wilcox (TBW)
has received an order worth euro 1.4 million from Irish
Refining for a new water tube boiler.
Refining is part of the Conoco-Phillips group, which is
the worlds largest refinery company. This is a breakthrough
order for TBW from the Conoco group and will be the first
boiler export to Europe.
boiler design complies with the most exacting and special
refinery standards, which were specified for the boiler
by Irish Refinery. This boiler will be an additional one
to the existing boiler in the oldest refinery in Ireland
situated in Whitegate.
TBW vice-president (front end) Ravinder Advani, who is
directly associated with ME Engineering in the UK: With
the best-in-class design and engineering capabilities
that Thermax Babcock and Wilcox has, through their domestic
and overseas contracts in 14 countries, it is high time
they are recognised so in Europe as well.
TBW manager (international marketing) Ashok Prusty: We
won the project jointly with ME Engineering, a wholly
owned subsidiary of the Thermax group, in the UK. Mott-McDonald
was the engineering and product evaluating group for this
project. This gives TBW an opportunity to come across
as yet another world-class engineering company.
