Background of the cooperation with Online Cleaning Technologies
The plant has been operating since 1975 and holds high environmental and operational standards. Up to 2014, the installation was stopped every 23-26 weeks for a maintenance shutdown which resulted in a shutdown of 3-4 days for cleaning alone. During this cycle boiler and furnace where cleaned manually after the cooldown of the plant. Since 2014 Online Cleaning Technologies has been performing regular linear shockwave cleaning in the boiler and cyclones to deslag the installation during the operations. Due to effective analysis and focused shockwaves, the maintenance cycles can be postponed substantially. Intervals between shutdowns has now been extended 32 weeks due to the cleaning by Online Cleaning Technologies, which is anticipated to be extended further once mechanical issues are overcome.
“Due to the services provided by Online Cleaning Technologies we are now achieving record running periods since the plants were built in 1975.”
