An All-Access Concept. Using technology that reduces the burner flame size, boilers can become less than a fifth the size of conventional plants and therefore, mountable on vessels or barges.
Anatomy of a Floating Coal Power Plant
Pulverized Coal Boilers are enormous field fabricated units that must “hang” from expensive superstructures to allow for thermal expansion. SEAPOWER® Micronized Coal Boilers are small modular floor-mounted units typical of those that burn heavy fuel oil; as such, are mountable on vessels or barges.
- Lower capital and lifecycle costs are realized with modular boilers, reduced steel structure, quicker installation, cheaper fuel, and greater redundancy.
- Portability allows for construction in modern shipyards with attractive financing.
- Remote areas can be served with minimal land requirements in an optimal 2x25, 2x50, or 2x100 megawatt capacity.
Flame Size Dictates Structure Size
- Boiler size is directly related to the size of the combustion flame. Our exclusive technology produces micron-sized coal particles so fine they burn similar to heavy fuel oil in small compact boilers. A comparable pulverized coal boiler can be as much as five times larger than a micronized coal boiler.
Coal Micronization Technology
- Our micronizer technology outputs coal particles on a micron scale; allowing coal to burn faster and more intense in significantly less-expensive, small-scale boilers. Their unique size is what allows the plant to be mounted on floating vessels or barges.
