This paper highlights the successful application of individual sootblowing optimization with Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc.’s (B&W PGG) Powerclean® intelligent sootblowing system on a coal-fired utility boiler in the United States. The boiler operated with the sequenced-based version of Powerclean since 2009 and in June 2013, upgraded to the latest version, Powerclean NX with individual sootblowing. The boiler is a supercritical, B&W PGG universal pressure (UP®) boiler rated at 1200 MW.
