New Contract - 23-05-2013
UK engineering firm Denman Instrumentation has once again re-established its long term relationship with EPC giant Alstom Power to assist in the commissioning of the Az-zour combined-cycle power plant in Kuwait.
Alstom’s scope of work; to build a steam-tail add-on, will consist of adding steam power generation equipment to an existing gas power plant to increase its efficiency.
The steam-tail will add 400 megawatts (MW) to the existing 800 MW power plant capacity, increase its efficiency and cut emissions per MW produced (Alstom.com).
Denman will be sending out a team of instrument technicians to assist with the loop checking and commissioning of the Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSG’s) and Water Steam Cycle (WSC). The contract is another in a long line of projects for Denman with Alstom Power, having previously completed commissioning work at Claus C, Netherlands and a number of UK based projects.
This will not be the first time Denman has worked in the Middle East having already completed projects in Fujairah, Dubai and Oman.

The work will include commissioning of none Alstom areas of the site plus completion of additional works within the Claus C project such as modifications and helping with the design of new loops.
Managing Director, Paul Denman said he was pleased that the hard work the team have put in during the project has been noticed: “We are delighted that the team at Essent have requested the services of Denman to assist their operations and maintenance team with getting up to speed with the new plant and equipment. We always strive to ensure our work is of a high standard and our knowledge of the site coupled with our expertise has prompted Essent to retain our services past the construction phase of the project.
