ESI air-shipped a high volume of oil flush equipment to our plant in Greece when a previous contractor failed to successfully flush a 600mw turbine with conventional methods. The team from ESI completed the flush in 7 days, exceeding the cleanliness specification with the manufacturer providing warranties and our expectations.

ESI provided turnkey pre-engineering and steam blow services for our two 600mw coal-fired boilers at our plant in Paiton, Indonesia. The pre-engineering and detailed procedures submitted prior to the actual work ensured that the multi-million pound-per-hour steam blows were successfully completed in ten days instead of the months it would have taken going the conventional route.
