“A solution comprising of fourty of NOxProtekt 600-3 Selective Catalytic Reduction units supported by a frame structure allowing for thermal expansion and vibration isolation”
A solution comprising of fourty of NOxProtekt 600-3 Selective Catalytic Reduction units supported by a frame structure allowing for thermal expansion and vibration isolation, with an upgraded modernised exhaust pipework. Each pair of units were controlled by a urea control panel directly linked to the main system panel which was in turn connected to the site generator control system. A pressurised piped ring main containing urea fed via a bulk storage tank completed the design. The site was limited in terms of space and installation was conducted under rigorous COVID restrictions.
The installation was a successful example of a quality engineered solution provided to give a turnkey solution for compliance with greater autonomy and reliability.
