For a lot of businesses globally, and power plants, in particular, there lingers the question of how energy costs can be optimised to maximise profits, while simultaneously minimising the impact of business operations on the environment. Enterprises constantly face this challenge of delivering high-quality products and services while ensuring margins and, as a corporate citizen, contributing to the efforts of protecting the well-being of the planet. As a global organisation offering energy-efficient and eco-friendly technologies that allow businesses to tackle this challenge, Thermax provides the competitive edge that enterprises need to make their marks in markets and communities alike.

The systems, products, and services developed by Thermax help industries achieve better resource productivity and improve bottom lines while maintaining a cleaner environment. Thermax’s services portfolio includes products for heating, cooling, water and waste management, and other crucial necessities for power generation plants. With an installed base of captive power plants surpassing 3300 MW spread over 125 projects, the company is a pioneer in setting up power plants on an Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) basis. Thermax has extensive experience in building and commissioning turnkey captive power plants as well as independent power plants in the utility space. Besides its EPC capability, Thermax offers complete plant operation and maintenance services with guarantees on uptime so that their clients can focus on what matters more—creating a sustainable and profitable business.

Thermax’s expert capabilities in designing and building large boilers for steam and power generation, industrial and municipal wastewater treatment plants, waste heat recovery systems and air pollution control projects, give it an edge of versatility over its competitors. Not only is it one of the few Indian companies that have sourced supercritical technology to build boilers for mega power plants, but Thermax also harnesses solar energy to support its clients in their heating, cooling and power generation requirements. Its steam generation solutions range over combustion of various solid, liquid and gaseous fuels to heat recovery from gas turbine/engine exhaust for different industrial processes and applications. For power utilities, the company also offers pulverised coal-fired boilers based on subcritical and supercritical parameters.
The heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) supplied by Thermax are now an integral part of the 130 MW combined cycle power plant set up by PT Bekasi Power, Jakarta. The supplementary fired HRSGs installed behind two gas turbines, and a steam generator converts the waste heat into steam which in turn generates power. Thermax HRSGs have also been installed in projects in several other countries including India, Algeria and the Netherlands.

As a viable alternative to conventional cooling, Thermax provides systems that use steam, hot water, exhaust gases and other fuels for cooling instead of electricity

Since absorption cooling has emerged as a viable alternative to conventional cooling, Thermax provides systems that use steam, hot water, exhaust gases and other fuels for cooling instead of electricity. With efficient and optimal use of heat energy from boilers and engines, these systems pose no threat to ozone depletion and have the added benefit of a minimal carbon footprint. The company offers broad-based, single-source expertise and flange-to-flange solutions in all areas of environment protection—in its products and systems for air pollution control. Extensive work with diverse industry sectors and tie-ups with technology majors enable Thermax to implement clean technologies that recover pollutants, thus reducing their hazardous impact on the environment and, in many cases, enabling resource recovery from processes.

The company’s vision for the future is firmly anchored in the belief that to stay competitive; companies need to adopt sustainable development practices. To this end, through its business of energy rental services, Thermax helps industries receive an uninterrupted supply of heat, steam and chilled water and pay for them at per-unit cost without having to own and operate equipment at their premises. With integrated energy-environment expertise and a proven track record in global markets, Thermax is on the frontline of power plant innovations that help create cleaner energy.
