RJM International has been awarded a major engineering burner upgrade project to improve the performance of Unit 3 at Zetes 2, a 615 MW utility power plant of Eren Enerji located at Zonguldak, Turkey. The plant work will focus on improving boiler efficiency, thermal performance and reducing emissions.

Following a detailed site survey, combustion audit and associated CFD analysis, RJM developed an innovative solution which will include the provision of 24 bespoke RJM burners. The new equipment will be installed during the planned outage in spring / summer 2024.

Commenting on the project win, Steve Billett, Head of Projects at RJM said, “Following on from the major de-NOx project we are working on in Kosovo, this win in Turkey once again confirms our technical expertise and our ability to devise innovative, combustion-focused solutions that deliver real and enduring performance improvements. I would like to thank everyone at RJM and Eren Enerji who have been involved in the project so far.”

John Goldring, Managing Director at RJM commented, “We are delighted to secure this plant upgrade for Eren Enerji with a focus on reducing emissions, on an already highly efficient supercritical boiler. We have developed an excellent collaborative working relationship with the people at Eren Enerji and we look forward to completing a successful project”.

Ömer Buğer, Deputy CEO at Eren Enerji added, “We are glad to collaborate with RJM for executing the improvement project based on combustion efficiency and lower emission levels. It is also in our plan to expand the project for our other units to continue sustainable and reliable power generation.”

The Zetes stations consisting of 2,790 MW in total are all owned and operated by Eren Enerji, the leading power generation company with almost 7% of Turkish total electricity production, part of Eren Holding, a Turkish conglomerate.

Today RJM is also delivering other performance upgrade projects at utility generators in the USA and Asia-Pacific, as well as at biomass and Energy from Waste facilities in the UK and Italy.
