Steam Turbine to Combined Cycle Power plants

Background

A combined-cycle power plant project. The power station has three combined turbines: two gas turbines and one steam turbine. A multi-generating plant was created as a result of operating these gas turbines and the burning of the gas. That heat is used to produce steam - without the addition of fuel to it. Steam turbine additions project: New steam additions to the power plant that was built and carried-out in Israel by a large Korean corporation. The Korean concern chose “Krashin-Shalev” as its heat exchangers’ producer for the project.

The objective

The manufacture of plate heat exchangers for three power plants. The heat exchangers are used for cooling the drain water and cooling the power plant’s energy circuits with seawater.

The challenge

Engagement with a complex project in an active power plant. "Krashin-Shalev" was required to meet the highest levels of quality and quality controls. Two entities performed the quality control simultaneously - the Korean corporation on one hand, and EIC’s quality control array on the other.

The Project’s Solution

Massive built-in heat exchangers with titanium plates in seawater applications (please see review of plate heat exchangers in this site). The heat exchangers were successfully supplied to the Eshkol power plant. This power plant belongs to the Israel Electric Company and is located north of Ashdod Port. The power plant is one of the 5 steam power plants that lie along the Mediterranean shores.

The outcome

The design and production system and quality control of "Krashin-Shalev", were approved and received the highest quality scores. Our systems have been operating there for years on years as a part of the steaming array of the power plant. It is worth noting that the heat exchangers work smoothly, without any "tweets" about malfunctions or required maintenances.
