Our year has got off to a record-breaking start, the first quarter of the financial year saw us win our largest ever order to supply multiple WHRU inlet/bypass damper sets for an arctic environment project in Russia, alongside other large orders for WHRU sets heading to an FLNG vessel in offshore Senegal and 2 sets of inlet/bypass dampers destined for the final phase of works at the Agios Dimitrios Power Station, in Greece.
The arctic grade project in Siberia suffers from harsh weather conditions with Winter temperatures down to -50° C and is classed as a hazardous area. With multiple sets of WHRU sets due for delivery between July 2020 and October 2021 to be built in our factory just outside Nottingham, UK, this is great news for engineering and manufacturing work in the East Midlands and is the largest single order we have ever won for WHRU dampers.
The destination for the order won for the ATEX hazardous area located in offshore Senegal, suffers from severe dust storms blown from the Mauritanian desert. The 4 sets of WHRU inlet/bypass dampers with seal air to the inlet and 4 pressure relieving stack dampers are due to be mounted on a FLNG vessel. These dampers will be manufactured by one of our manufacturing partners in Europe.
In 2017, DTL were contracted to design and manufacture the complete supply of dampers, forming an integral part of the refurbishment works taking place on 4 of the Power Plant’s Flue Gas Heat Recovery System units at the Agios Dimitrios Power Station in Northern Greece. The latest order for 2 sets inlet/bypass Ø6m and Ø10.2m booster dampers with heated seal air system is the final phase of the project on the 5th unit at the same power station.
Mark Hancock, Co-founder & Managing Director of DTL said about the recent order book, “This is the best start to the year we have ever had. We have a lot of work ahead to execute these complex projects but it again highlights our skills and expertise in designing and manufacturing damper solutions to meet harsh and hostile environments utilising our global network of manufacturing partners.”
