In January 2011, LOESCHE Energy Systems (LES) celebrated its 5th birthday. Founded in January 2006, LES handles LOESCHE business for the worldwide fuel-grinding markets for power generation (Fig.). The LES business strategy in the power market has always focused on two core services, which are design and installation of coal mills (including biomass mills) for new-build plants and retrofitting LOESCHE dynamic classifiers to existing coal mills to improve performance and efficiency. These services are provided to customers with a choice of supply-only or full turnkey options, as well as anything in between.
LES customers are primarily boiler manufacturers and EPC companies for new-build power plants; they are operators or corporate owners in the case of dynamic classifier retrofits. In 5 years, LES has supplied or have orders for over 50 coal mills up to size LM 35.3 D and, including projects delivered with the support of LOESCHE Mills Shanghai (LMS), over 280 dynamic classifier retrofits to existing coal mills.
