PARAT Halvorsen AS will deliver a modern 20MW Power to Heat boiler for Steam with a design temperature of 234°C and a design pressure of 29 barg.

The delivery includes a 1400kW Superheater that will raise the temperature to 275°C. PARAT will also deliver Control Panel, Circulation Pumps, Feedwater Pumps, Dosing Unit, and Silencer. It will be connected to a 10kV connection and installed outdoors. E-Boiler, superheater, pumps, and instruments are prepared for outdoor installation. PARAT will do Start-Up, Commissioning, Training, and Test Run.

The Power to Heat system is expected to be installed in 2023 and will be fully up and running early 2024.

USG invests in sustainable future
A large part of the processes and installations in the chemical industry must be powered by sustainable electricity by 2050. Electrification of processes at Chemelot is, therefore a hot topic. A good example is the development of an electric boiler by Utility Support Group (USG), the utility company of Chemelot.

While Chemelot is currently an integrated site based on the use of naphtha and natural gas, the future is all about electrification and the greening of raw materials. 'As USG, we look at what we can contribute to sustainability. We soon came up with the e-boiler. A feasibility study has shown that an electric boiler would fit well in our system. After receiving the SDE++ subsidy we started with the realisation of the e-boiler. The e-boiler will be installed in 2023 and fully operational at the beginning of 2024,' Sonny Schepers, responsible for sustainability projects within USG, expects.

Sonny Schepers, responsible for sustainability projects within USG:
'The e-boiler fits two sustainability goals: it reduces CO₂ emissions at Chemelot and contributes to national grid stability.'
