RJM International appoints Chennai-based Buka Power to develop sales opportunities for RJM’s range of award-winning emissions reduction and efficiency improvement technologies throughout India

RJM International, the Winchester, UK–based provider of emissions reduction technology and equipment to the global power generation and large combustion plant sectors, announces today that it has signed a Representative Agreement with a local Indian company, Buka Power, based in the city of Chennai in Tamil Nadu.

Under the terms of the agreement, Buka Power will act as the exclusive  representative for RJM International in the six Indian states of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telengana, Karnataka, Chattisgarh and West Bengal and be responsible for developing sales of RJM’s range of products and services in these territories. Buka Power can also be contacted for sales enquiries throughout the whole of India.

With a total population in excess of 1.3 billion people and a confirmed government ambition to deliver reliable and affordable 24/7 power across India, the opportunities for emissions and efficiency experts such as RJM International to work in partnership with Indian boilermakers and utility supply companies are now considerable.

Commenting on the representative agreement, John Goldring, Managing Director of RJM said, “India is committed to a major expansion of its power generation capacity and whilst renewables are increasingly important, a significant proportion of the additional gigawatts required will be delivered by thermal plan

“Within that growing thermal-fired segment of the market, Indian coal will be the primary fuel source and this is where RJM’s ground-breaking technologies can play an important role, helping to keep emissions as low as possible without compromising on operating efficiencies or cost.

“In addition, our expertise in co-firing with biomass is also something that has attracted the attention of the Indian market.

“We are delighted to have signed with Buka Power and look forward to developing a mutually beneficial relationship,” he confirmed.

Mr. SS Rao, Managing Director, Buka Power said, “We are extremely pleased and proud to represent RJM International which has an impeccable track record of innovation and technological success. We are excited to be part of this partnership which commits itself to providing environmental-friendly solutions to coal-fired power stations in India.

“The Indian government strongly supports the absolute need to protect and nurture the environment and has taken concrete steps towards fulfilling its obligations under the Paris Agreement of 2015; the state-of-the-art technology that RJM has developed will be able to assist a considerable number of power plants across the country.

“RJM is at the forefront of emissions reduction capabilities and has a proven track record of successfully completed projects delivering the most significant emissions reductions, so we are delighted to be representing the company in the Indian market,” he confirmed.

RJM International wins its first Queen’s Award the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2017

RJM International, the Winchester–based provider of emissions reduction solutions and equipment to the power generation and large combustion plant sectors, has announced that Her Majesty The Queen has approved the Prime Minister’s recommendation that it should receive a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category this year. The Award was conferred on Friday 21st April 2017, Her Majesty’s birthday.

RJM International has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2017 because it has  developed and is now successfully marketing worldwide, a unique, hi-tech, engineering-based technology that enables operators and owners of power stations, industrial boilers and other large combustion plant to meet the latest international emissions regulations in a highly cost-effective manner.

The reduction in levels of nitrogen oxides (NOx) within thermal-fired units is particularly difficult to achieve on existing plants if operational flexibility and other key parameters are not to be compromised as a result. Two options were previously available to operators; reconfigure the plant to enable a post-combustion, flue gas treatment facility to be installed - a very expensive, £ multi-million option – or close the plant.

RJM International has developed a unique and cost-effective range of Ultra-Low NOx replacement burners that, when combined with RJM’s complete firing solution, manage the combustion of fuel in a highly efficient manner, reducing the levels of NOx emissions to very low levels during combustion and yet still maintaining operational efficiencies.
