Our services ensure that the machines and equipment at your power plant achieve the highest levels of safety, performance and availability 

Working at full power

  • BUCHEN KraftwerkService offers a full range of services covering all the different plant sections found at power plants and waste incineration plants as well as boiler plants used by chemical, food processing and other industrial businesses. 

  • We are there for you whenever you need us – 24/7. In an emergency, you can reach us via our 24-hour emergency line at 0800 7177 111

  • Boiler cleaning services

    • If the properties of the fuel change in the boiler, then this not only alters the speed that the fuel is dried out, ignited and burnt off but also affects where in the system these reactions actually take place. We can offer you an extensive package of services covering the removal, transport and disposal of all types of fouling found on the heating surfaces and steam generators. 

    Cleaning using rope access and positioning methods

    • Conventional scaffolding may not be an option for carrying out work on areas that are difficult to access or may not be economically viable. Here is where our industrial climbers come into play.

    Detonative cleaning services

    • We use detonative cleaning technology to remove fouling in the combustion chambers of large boilers as well as in modern fluidised bed boilers, in downstream flue gas treatment systems – such as spray dryer absorbers – and in silos used for storing residual products. The deposits are dislodged by the shock waves created by the detonation.

    Stud removal/stud welding

    • The refractory lining and boiler pipe are anchored together by metal elements (studs). BUCHEN KraftwerkService carries out all work required in this area both on the inside and outside of boilers – either repairing the studs or installing new ones. Our operatives also perform any preparation work that may be needed beforehand. 

    Air/gas preheater cleaning services

    • We have designed and developed our own fully automated, computer-controlled system for cleaning air and gas preheaters using high pressure water jets. This system is mobile, self-contained and only requires a supply of electricity and water.

    Air cooler cleaning services

    • BUCHEN KraftwerkService has developed its own automated high pressure cleaning system that has been adapted to the special features of air coolers and air cooled condensers. This specialised system uses a gentle but highly effective process to clean these sensitive machines.

    Wet chemical cleaning services

    • BUCHEN KraftwerkService uses wet chemical processes to remove stubborn deposits or to remove any residue rust left over after plant sections have been cleaned using other wet cleaning methods.

    Dry ice blasting technology

    • Dry ice blasting technology is an eco-friendly and non-abrasive method used to prepare and clean surfaces. It is particularly suitable for removing deposits from metal parts and metal surfaces.

    Additional services

    • From carrying out cleaning work using rope access, to vacuum work and waste management, all the way through to dismantling plants and facilities – we can offer you a comprehensive range of services to provide you with the solution that best suits your needs.
