Welcome Nationwide Boiler's Newest Representatives: GIANTECH Engineering and Aujan Industrial Solutions!

With business booming both domestically and overseas, Nationwide Boiler is pleased to announce that we have signed on two new representatives to cover our international client base. Please help us welcome GIANTECH Engineering Ltd. Pte and Aujan Industrial Solutions to the Nationwide representative network.

GIANTECH is a one-stop engineering and service organization for many marine and offshore equipment manufacturers, assisting ship owner/operators and fleet managers with their tanker and transport needs. In addition, they represent many boiler, burner, and related product manufacturers. We are already working with them on the potential of providing a new B&W boiler to one of our previous customers in Malaysia, and having that local support is a big advantage. GIANTECH will cover the ASEAN region (Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Malaysia).

Aujan Industrial Solutions (AIS) has provided the highest quality safety products and solutions to the oil and gas industry since 1977. AIS serves all segments of the market through their four branches located in key parts of the Kingdom. They provide turn-key project services, taking a job from the design phase all the way through commissioning and training, as well as installation, inspection, calibration, and maintenance services. Aujan Industrial Solutions' territories include the GCC Middle East (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, and Oman).

We look forward to building a larger client base in these regions and working with both of these reputable companies to provide superior steam solutions to customers across the world!

New 110,000 lb/hr Superheat Boiler Provides Increased Steam Capacity

With short summers and weather as unpredictable as it is charming, much of Newfoundland and Labrador relies on NARL Refining’s ability to provide warmth and clean fuel. We were able to assist with the refinery’s needs by providing them with one of our new in-stock 110,000 lb/hr trailer-mounted superheat boilers. The 750 psig design watertube boiler was manufactured by Babcock & Wilcox, who recommended Nationwide Boiler for the job per our stock boiler program.

To learn more about the boiler sale and how we were able to accommodate the customer’s need for an immediately available unit, read our latest case study. (PDF will download in a new window.)

Energy Department to Provide Technical Assistance to Facilities Impacted by EPA Boiler Rule

On December 20, 2012, the EPA finalized the Boiler MACT, a specific set of adjustments to existing Clean Air Act standards, for boilers and certain solid waste incinerators. These adjustments set standards to cut emissions of hazardous air pollutants, such as mercury, dioxin, and lead, from large boilers in a range of industrial facilities and institutions.

The DOE will offer technical assistance to affected sites currently burning coal or oil, highlighting strategies such as natural gas combined heat and power (CHP), and more efficient boilers, to cut harmful pollution and reduce operational costs. DOE will also provide site-specific technical and cost information to the major source facilities currently burning coal or oil through its regional Clean Energy Application Centers (CEACs).

The CEACs will visit these facilities to discuss strategies for compliance, including CHP, as well as provide information on potential funding and financing opportunities available for CHP, controls, boilers and energy efficiency assessments. Facilities that make use of this technical assistance can potentially develop strategies to comply with the regulations while adding to their bottom line.

Contact Nationwide Boiler today to discuss how we can help you come up with a solution that will cut emissions in your facility. Call: 1-800-227-1966.

For more information on the DOE technical assistance program, see:

Information on financial incentives available at the local, state, utility and federal levels to assist facilities with the costs of investing in CHP, boiler tune-ups, controls and/or energy efficiency assessments is available at:
http://www1.eere.energy.gov/manufacturing/states/pdfs/incentives_boiler_mact.pdf

Information about the rule, including links to the regulatory dockets, technical information on how the limits were developed, and impact assessments, is available at:
