Solutions to challenges
Bespoke Insulation System
The original insulation system on the lower sections of the HRSG’s used common fixings for the insulation and cladding. This system was rigid which allowed the transmission of vibrations leading to the failure of the fixings and detachment of large sections of insulation and cladding. Actavo were able to provide the site resources, technical back up and material supply required to design and install a bespoke insulation system with the insulation and cladding secured independently to the HRSG casing. This meant the cladding was isolated from vibrations and the failures that occurred with the original insulation system were prevented.
Benefits to Clients
The design and installation of the bespoke insulation system improved the efficiency of the HRSG’s which has resulted in ongoing cost savings and eliminated the safety hazards associated with insulation falls.
