Amsterdam, the Netherlands—Deltaway Energy International, Inc. continues to improve plant performance and reduce maintenance costs at AEB’s 4,200-ton-per-day waste-fired power plant in Amsterdam.
Under a two-year contract signed in late 2019, the company in 2020 implemented a number of important improvements, including a boiler load increase program and an equipment reliability effort aimed at reducing downtime. Deltaway’s team also helped resolve a turbine capacity reduction issue that has so far resulted in a 30 percent capacity gain.
Deltaway deployed two full-time senior managers to the site and established a state-of-the-art production and performance monitoring system. In addition to the boiler and turbine improvements, they have reviewed and updated the maintenance program and practices, adjusted annual planned outage sequences to optimize availability, and revitalized the teamwork culture in certain departments.

The company applies industry best practices and its own proven performance improvement tools, experience, and design solutions to help clients increase income and reduce operating costs.
