Environmental regulations are causing drastic changes in the power generation industry. For example, generating stations that were traditionally base-loaded are now being forced into load following roles. Rather than operating at or near full capacity all of the time, this change requires frequent shut-downs and restarts with short notice.
Fortunately, many new generating assets are capable of coming on and offline in minutes. The downside for power plant managers is that these generators must be kept warm when off-line and for start-up when they’re dispatched. They operate at high temperatures and pressures that must be maintained, typically through auxiliary steam.
Precision Boilers provides efficient, reliable electric boilers to produce auxiliary steam for power plants throughout the United States.
Our electric steam boilers and generators come online faster than traditional gas-fired boilers and, more importantly, they’re much less expensive to operate in standby mode. This is important, because the plant doesn’t need auxiliary steam while it’s generating power, so the boilers are frequently in standby mode.
