Global Supplier to the Gas Turbine Industry
"Through the execution of all phases of the project, Baltec IES has continuously shown high levels of effort and performance, handing all aspects smoothly and very professionally."
"This is our first experience with Baltec IES Pty. Ltd. and we find them an efficient and reliable company based on our business dealings with them."
"Following the successful execution of the contract, Baltec has continued to provide excellent support to AGL in all areas that have been required."
"…Baltec has successfully fulfilled their contractual obligations and met the required performance criteria. They have exhibited a professional approach in project execution and offered prompt responses towards technical queries. It has been a very rewarding experience with Baltec in all our projects."
“The installation of Baltec’s equipment were finalised very smoothly without any problems. The joint efforts to formulate an efficient and effective method of Elbow to Diverter exchange played a key role in allowing a smooth transition.”
"Baltec’s equipment has been delivered to site before the contractual dates. All units are now being fully commissioned and we have been totally satisfied with Baltec’s excellent performance to date."
The main objective of Baltec IES is to provide top quality solutions to the gas turbine power industry.
It is our company policy to strive for the achievement of complete customer satisfaction by rigorously determining their exact requirements at the pre-tender and tender stages of a project so that these are met, including those of the product and service-related expectations, such as on-time delivery.
We are and will always be part of the solution, not the problem.
We use state of the art 3D design software to cover all aspects of our product development process with a seamless integrated workflow, which includes design, review, communication and data management.
We are proud to have a multidisciplinary team of experts working on structural, electrical, mechanical and acoustical topics.
Noise, flow and structural simulations are performed for every piece of equipment and designed to ensure their reliability once they are built.
Baltec IES has progressively expanded its operations and now has offices and agencies in 26 countries, strategically located all around the world to cover the needs of our clients and demanding regions.
It also has strategic alliances and agreements with more than 20 top manufacturing locations. This allows easy/short transport to site, minimising freight costs.
Our systematic, but also “outside the box”, approach allows us to respond to clients’ needs promptly and efficiently.
We have established, and maintain, a Quality Management System based on ISO 9001:2008. We strive for constant continual improvement and vigorous innovation by measuring and recording our internal objectives to deliver our products on time, at highest quality and customer satisfaction rates, and with minimum material wastage.
Baltec IES provides its services for the whole life cycle of the project: from research and development, design and drafting to practical completion.
Our after sales team provides full support during the lifetime of our products, as well as execution of retrofit projects and supply of spare parts.
A 360 Solution
Baltec IES designs and manufactures both static and pulse-type filter houses, together with the necessary support structures. Static Filter houses use disposable cartridge-type filters, and typically incorporate two levels of filtration - A stage of coarse pre-filters, for removing any larger airborne particles, followed by a stage of fine filters. The number of filters used, and hence the overall size of the Filter house, is selected based upon the minimum time required between filter changes, usually specified by the customer, and the dust concentration. Pulse Filter houses use conical-shaped filters and feature an inbuilt filter-cleaning system, where each filter is periodically blown clean by a burst of compressed air. The advantage of a Pulse Filter house over a Static Filter house is that the filter elements will last much longer between changes. As with a Static Filter house, the number of filters used, and hence the overall size of the Filter house, is selected based upon the minimum time required before the filters need replacing. Ductwork necessary to interface the Filter house to the turbine, including Expansion Joints and Silencers if necessary can be provided.
Baltec IES undertakes extensive acoustic analysis on each project. When required, exhaust silencers are custom-designed to ensure the customer’s noise targets are met in terms of both near and far field levels, whilst at the same time providing maximum efficiency form the Gas Turbine, meaning minimum pressure losses. The inlet and exhaust silencers can be provided as either horizontal or vertical flow types, depending on the geometry of the complete system and/or client preference.
These are used whenever a secondary isolation of the HRSG ducting is required during maintenance works, and are fitted downstream of the Diverter Damper in a typical Bypass Exhaust System. Baltec IES can provide Guillotine Dampers, either electric or manual operated, with the option of providing a Seal-Air System independent to that of the Diverter Damper. Custom designed Guillotine Dampers can also be supplied for many industrial processes other than isolation of Gas Turbine Exhausts.
Baltec IES has the expertise and engineering capability to design and produce complete Gas Turbine Bypass and HRSG Exhaust System packages, including the Stack, Silencers and Weather (Stack) Dampers. This is a critical element in any Combined Cycle Power Plant as they allow the exhaust gases to escape to the atmosphere safely, as well as allowing the Gas Turbine to work efficiently by introducing minimal pressure drop to the system. Our Exhaust stacks include access ladders, landing and ring platforms, as well as Continuous Emission Monitoring Ports on top of stack as per Gas Turbine Manufacturer regulations
It is essentially a large modulating valve and an important component of the Bypass Exhaust System. Baltec IES can customise and manufacture Diverter Dampers to suit any size of the gas turbine. Diverters utilise an automated seal air system to guarantee 100% sealing efficiency and are available with either electric or hydraulic drive, supplied also with a Local Control Panel which also provides the interface to the plant DCS for full remote operation. Smaller Diverters, with gas paths typically less than 3m x 3m square, are normally direct-drive, whereby the diverter blade is driven directly by the hydraulic or electric actuator. Diverters larger than 4m x 4m are usually toggle-drive, utilising a linkage mechanism to reduce the operating strain on the diverter blade and shaft. We have delivered orders for the biggest diverter damper ever built so far: 6.5m gas path. For personnel safety and long product life, we design our Diverters, Elbows and Exhaust Stacks with cold shells, using a layer of ceramic fibre insulation between the inner stainless steel liner and outer duct surfaces. This ensures the equipment has an exterior temperature typically less than 50°C, even with exhaust gas temperatures in excess of 680°C. Other alternative designs can be offered, such as warm and hot shell, depending on specific project requirements.
