Curtiss-Wright India Awarded 2nd Place for the Best Technical Solution in the Thermal Power Generation Process

PARAMUS, NJ – March 10, 2023 – Curtiss-Wright’s Surface Technologies Division, a leading global provider of highly engineered surface treatments and analytical services, announces the CWST India team won second place for their work on “fatigue life improvement techniques for boiler tubes under cyclic operation, influenced by various material, operational & external parameters”. On-site shot peening services were offered at two thermal power plants in India on a pilot basis. This consisted of virgin boiler tube ID peening in free length state and also in an assembled condition in one of the power plants. The goal was to increase the service life of the super charger boiler tubes and to improve the microstructure of the tube by inducing compressive stress to avoid crack propagation at the edge bend section of the tubes.

David Rivellini, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Curtiss-Wright SurfaceTechnologies Division, says “In 2022 India added a  capacity of 4,485 MW through eight thermal power plants and plans to commission ten thermal power plants in 2023, with an aggregate 7,010 MW capacity. We are happy to support these energy initiatives with our R&D and are very proud of our team for achieving this great milestone.”
