HEATHERBRAE, NSW, Australia, Sept. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Conco Systems Pty Ltd. has completed the four-year, four-unit Stanwell Power Station Midlife Condenser Re-tube. The massive condenser re-tubing project began in Stanwell’s Unit 1 in 2015, and continued for a total of four years, with an additional unit being re-tubed during scheduled outages each year. The final phase of the project ended in May of 2018, when the Unit 4 re-tube was completed.
The Stanwell Power Station project holds special significance for Conco Systems Pty Ltd. and its parent company, Conco Services Corporation, as it was to-date the largest project the organization had undertaken. Conco project managers were able to successfully complete each phase of the four-year project on-time and on-budget, while maintaining the safety and continuity of the project labor force.
Conco Systems Pty Ltd. was the primary source for all titanium tubing and supplementary equipment. Each of Stanwell Power Station’s four units had contained approximately 13,000 aluminum-brass tubes, and the retubing project provided the plant with an opportunity to replace the aging tubes with corrosion-resistant titanium tubes.
Conco enables power plants, refineries and industrial production facilities to improve profitability, productivity and reliability through a uniquely integrated platform of products and services for condensers and heat exchangers.
