Russia’s OJSC Togliattiazot (ToAZ) is one of the world’s largest producers of ammonia and a great example of how chemical plant maintenance services can improve production. In an effort to modernize facilities to increase environmental and economic sustainability, ToAZ commissioned GE to upgrade two GE Fitchburg industrial steam turbines at the company’s production facility in Togliatti.

The ToAZ upgrade will replace major components needed to amplify production capacity. The multiphase project includes plans to modernize the plant’s low-pressure and high-pressure GE industrial steam turbines that drive their corresponding low- and high-pressure syngas compressors in mechanical-drive mode.
“The upgrade of the ToAZ compression trains is a crucial step that helps boost production capacity. As the original equipment supplier, GE is familiar with our operations and has the technology expertise to provide a highly effective and reliable solution that may be implemented without affecting our existing workflow.”

POSCO is one of the world’s leading steel producers. To keep pace with regional demand, POSCO’s nearly 50-year-old steel plant steam turbines needed modernizing. GE Steam Power is in charge of the retrofit of four Toshiba steam turbines at POSCO Pohang Works steel manufacturing plant in Pohang, South Korea—nearly doubling the turbines’ ability to generate steam power for steel production.
The agreement will also employ hardware and software technology solutions to safeguard against unforeseen occurrences—like unplanned downtown due to a malfunction, which could impact productivity. GE is focused on environmentally safe solutions that will cross GE and other OEM fleet infrastructures, resulting in low production cost, improved reliability, and expanded capability.
“The project will help our facility to increase the supply of process steam to 70 tons per hour, up from the current 40 tons per hour. The performance gains from these upgrades are significant.”
Group leader of the head office of finance and investment division of POSCO
In the small Canadian town of La Tuque, pulp & paper production is a big deal. Located in the Quebec province, the community’s economy centers on several manufacturing facilities, including the La Tuque pulp & paper mill, where tons of high-demand packaging goods are produced for industries including food & beverage and beauty & personal care.
In operation since 1907, the pulp & paper mill was facing aging industrial boiler components that needed modernization services to keep up with its 24/7, 350-days a year production schedule. With downtime only possible a few days a year, La Tuque tapped GE Steam Power to install new economizer boiler hardware that could extend the plant’s operating life as much as 40 years.
The GE team was able to complete the industrial boiler project ahead of schedule due to meticulous, early project planning and the team’s familiarity with the plant—GE started working with the La Tuque mill more than 50 years ago with the installation of boilers and air pollution control equipment.
The modernization effort is helping La Tuque maintain the quality standards of its operation recommended by the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry (TAPPI). Ever since the industrial boiler service took place, the new equipment’s performance has been “outstanding.”
