Fossil Power

IGS’s solutions help keep the world’s largest fossil fuel-fired power plants online and running at maximum availability with surface protection and restoration solutions that address problems of erosion and corrosion. With over 30 years experience serving large pulverized coal-fired, stoker, oil-fired, and circulating fluidized bed plants, we have dealt with virtually every metal wastage problem.

In coal-fired plants, we typically address problems in areas that are experiencing metal wastage due to elevated-temperature erosion and/or corrosion. Our knowledgeable project managers are unique in their understanding of corrosion and erosion mechanisms and surface protection solutions. They are experienced and trained in project management, ensuring excellent operational execution. Typical equipment addressed with our solutions in fossil fuel powered plants includes:

  • Pulverized Coal (PC) Fired Boilers
  • Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) Boilers
  • Grate-Fired Boilers
  • Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) Systems
  • Wet and Dry Scrubbers
  • Airheaters, Sootblowers, Turbines, and Other Equipment
  • Boiler Deslagging
  • Boiler Tube Corrosion
  • Boiler Tube Welding
  • Circulating Fluidized Bed Boiler Erosion
  • Circumferential Cracking
  • SCR Catalyst Replacement
  • Stress Corrosion Cracking
