April 2, 2009 – ABB announced the Industrial Boiler Optimization Service. The service combines diagnosis, implementation and sustaining services to garner and maintain energy cost savings, enhanced boiler performance efficiency, safety and reliability. Components can be delivered separately or combined, based on site capabilities and requirements. “To date, this service has surpassed our expectations. Customer cost savings are well beyond our initial estimates”, commented Robert Horton, US Optimization Service Business Development Manager. “We are well positioned to provide substantial energy cost savings with this offering.” The diagnostic phase, the “Boiler Fingerprint”, utilizes an engineered approach, including proven methodology, and in-depth knowledge of systems and processes. It includes a comparison of current performance against benchmarks, existing controls to industry standards, and operating responses to expected capability. Boiler test results, instrumentation, control system performance, and combustion efficiency are analyzed to assess performance and improvement potential. From this data, both a performance benchmark and an actionable improvement plan are generated. The improvement plan lists associated estimated financial benefit for each recommendation. Once optimization goals have been met, ABB expertise is offered as a renewable service contract to sustain the financial and operational benefits gained through the optimization process.
