Brought in to revive an underperforming boiler, BPEI turned it around with mechanical and control enhancements. The project included installing a new overfire air system, redesigning and reconfiguring an existing multicyclone, and installing an intelligent boiler control system.
Steam flow was doubled and the boiler now runs entirely on economical wood-waste fuel. Offsetting natural gas usage led to significant energy savings for Tembec.
