Prvni brnenska strojirna, a.s. was awarded a contract to design, deliver, erection and comissioning of the Direct Fired Gas Boiler for UNIPER Scholven Combined Heat and Power plant in Gelsenkirchen, West Germany. The contract was awarded by SENER MMEC MANNESMANN SCHOLVEN PROJECT GbR consortium within the “Scholven III Project”, SENER MMEC MANNESMANN is the general supplier of the new CHP plant for UNIPER.
A traditional boiler manufacturer, První brněnská strojírna, a.s. (PBS), will take a part in the construction of the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant consisting of two gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generators and one steam turbine at the Scholven site by providing a direct fired steam boiler. Delivery is scheduled to begin with design stage in 2020 and with final hand over of boiler in 2022.
UNIPER is an international energy company that generates, trades, and sells energy on a large scale with 11,400 employees in 40 countries and has a generating capacity of approximately 34 GW.

The new Scholven CHP Plant is proposed to replace the existing plants in the future. The conversion of the site to gas will not only significantly reduce emissions of substances such as CO2 but it will also reduce noise pollution. The entire production of the new CHP Plant at this traditional site is tailored to the needs of the surrounding industry and the future need for district heating supplies.
První brněnská strojírna, a.s. will supply a natural gas fired steam boiler with output of 100 t/h of superheated steam.
„The purpose of the PBS boiler will not be to be operated as a backup boiler only, but also in certain times of the year, it will act as a peak boiler too. In warm conditions, the boiler will reach the nominal power at nominal rated parameters within 15 minutes including the ventilation of the boiler, which must be done before each ignition. The boiler will also be capable of reaching a nominal load from its minimal load in 5 minutes.”says Pavel Kreminsky, deputy of PBS CTO.
