Tulsa-based John Zink Hamworthy Combustion (JZHC) has joined with The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) to provide design, installation and air-source testing services for steam-generation systems utilizing JZHC’s registered Coen brand.The agreement pairs JZHC’s ultra-low-NOx Coen burners with B&W’s water-tube package boilers, which both companies will offer to their customers.
“Until now, customers have had to oversee multiple companies for engineering, equipment manufacturing, installation, start-up, and emissions testing,” said Jason Cardoza, Coen Vice President. “Working alongside B&W will allow us to simplify the process by managing the entire scope as one comprehensive project, giving customers a single source with more capabilities than anyone in the industry.”
Over the last 50 years, emissions regulations have grown increasingly stringent. The combustion expertise needed to meet these standards should be at the forefront of the overall system planning and development, according to the Zink statement.
Coen has installations in more than 15,000 sites worldwide and can engineer the entire system for optimized steam production and emissions control.
“John Zink and its Coen brand are the leaders in ultra-low-NOx emissions burners and complex fuel applications,” Cardoza said. “Leading with this expertise, rather than subcontracting it as just another piece of the process, will minimize startup delays and performance issues.”
Cardoza also noted the extensive expertise B&W brings to the table. The company has worked in advanced boiler technologies for more than 150 years and has supplied more than 5,000 package and industrial boilers to customers around the world.
“B&W and John Zink have enjoyed a strong relationship on many projects over many years, so this teaming agreement was a natural fit for us,” said Brandy Johnson, B&W Vice President of Global Projects. “Our companies are the industry leaders in our respective areas of expertise, and by working together, we can offer our customers unmatched reliability and value – as well as streamlined sourcing, engineering, manufacturing and installation – for their project’s boiler needs.”
