First start-up of NOx retrofit at Paris Urban Heating Plant (CPCU)

Fives Combustion news CPCU 2-FIVES

The first boiler at Ivry’s boiler house is now ready to be commissioned and the project is entering a crucial phase.

In 2013, the Belgian boiler-maker CMI awarded Fives to supply 62 Pillard LoNOxFlam G2 burners to Paris Urban Heating Plant (CPCU). CMI selected Fives and its Pillard LoNOxFlam G2 burners because of its capacity to design low NOx tailor-made burners, meeting with the particularly stringent specifications of CPCU. 

The first boiler at Ivry’s boiler house is now ready to be commissioned and the project is entering a crucial phase, because the tuning and all possible optimizations regarding NOx emission will be carried out and tested on this first generator. A total of 13 boilers have to be upgraded by 2017.

To meet the stringent emission requirement, the commissioning engineers worked with Fives Pillard's R & D team to optimize the settings for the other boilers at CPCU as those boilers are not strictly identical to those of Ivry.
