  • INNOVA Global expands global reach by acquiring Braden


    CALGARY, AB (October 12, 2017) INNOVA Global Ltd. (INNOVA), an international leader in emissions and noise control, announced today that it has acquired the shares of the multinational gas turbine auxiliary equipment specialist, Braden, from Global Power Equipment Group. The acquisition includes Braden Manufacturing LLC (BUSA) in Tulsa, Consolidated Fabricators (CFI) in Auburn, Massachusetts and Braden-Europe (BEUR) located in Heerlen, the Netherlands.

    The acquisition of Braden allows INNOVA to expand its global reach with added market presence in North, Central and South America, as well as Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, China and, Australasia.

    INNOVA’s President and CEO Harry Wong said the combination of INNOVA and Braden brings together strong project experience and the product offering of two global leaders in their fields. “As a result of this transaction, INNOVA will expand its international footprint into Europe, China, the Middle East and North Africa as well as strengthen its presence in the US and the Americas”, Mr. Wong said. “Importantly, the clients of the combined entity will benefit greatly from the breadth of prequalified product designs and solutions to service its clients worldwide.”

    “We look forward to strengthening our operations through extension of the technical capabilities, global supply chain, and expansion of product offerings through the combined INNOVA-Braden team,” he said.

    “Similarly, we also plan to work with the strong CFI team to strengthen its product offering to existing clients and to manufacture some of their current specialized parts.”

    “Braden Europe provides INNOVA with an important base within the European Union and a pathway to offer additional products and services to clients within BEUR’s geographical markets.”

    Braden has a unique gas turbine aftermarket retrofit and parts business, which offer clients the option of upgrading and improving auxiliary equipment requiring repairs or replacement - from filter houses to exhaust silencers and stacks, diverter dampers, and a complete line of in-duct products. “This aftermarket and retrofit operation will add a new dimension to INNOVA’s product and service offering which we plan to support with our in-house construction group and grow into a much larger business,” Mr. Wong said.

    The Braden transaction, follows INNOVA’s acquisition earlier this year of the liquidated intellectual property assets of Express Integrated Technologies (EIT) a leader in Selective Catalytic Reduction Systems and Once Through Steam Generators (OTSGs).

  • Anti-Icing Systems
    Prevent ice formation damage using an anti-icing system that recovers heat from the exhaust and transfers it to the inlet to raise air temperatures out of the icing risk range....

  • Innova Globals’ anti-icing system design is based on hundreds of hours of CFD and FEA modeling and analysis. It features zero pressure drop impact on engine performance.

    The Innova Global anti-icing system is unique in the industry. Our system recovers hot exhaust air from the turbine, warming the air in a heat exchanger then transporting it to the inlet face via a blower. Our straightforward design is adaptable to any gas turbine application, and the simplicity of our system allows for its activation at any time during operation— providing the protection you need where and when you need it.

    1. The blower forces ambient air into offset arrays of circular tubes just inside the exhaust duct shell.
    2. Air flows through the heat exchanger counter to the exhaust gas path, warming as it travels.
    3. The heated air is then transported through ducting to distribution rakes at the filter house inlet, where it flows evenly across its face.
    4. The warm air is introduced upstream from the first stage of the inlet filter, raising the overall temperature of combustion airflow to shift air conditions out of the icing risk range.

    Innova Global also offers an alternate inlet heating designs that allow for as much as a 59°F temperature rise. This allows for safe operation of the gas turbine under the lowest ambient temperatures. In particular, some gas turbines emit higher NOx levels under low ambient temperatures. Installation of our system to act as an inlet heating solution allows for effective operation of the gas turbine year-round.

    With over 100 active units, our anti-icing system has proven that it is an effective, low maintenance, low-cost operation and high performance solution to combustion turbine icing.

    We are so confident in our design that we include a two-year mechanical performance guarantee on every anti-icing system installed.

    We can create reliable, robust and effective designs to meet any system and compliance requirements, as we take into account such critical areas as:

    • Thermally compensating diverter blade and blade supports

    • Robust diverter toggle drive systems

    • Baffle support systems and silencing baffles

    Engineering Innovation

    A traditional problem with diverter dampers are the “hot spots” at the seal land area, which result in issues with personnel safety as well as diverter damper functionality. Innova Global has created a patented seal land system that solves the “hot spot” issue, resulting in a more robust and cost-saving system.

    Innova Global uses in-house CFD and 3D modeling, as well as finite element analysis to ensure that all design limits for pressure drop, local velocity limits in critical silencer sections, and non-cyclonic flow requirements are met.

    Whatever your needs are, we can offer the optimum solution, balancing capital costs, construction time/costs, and operational flexibility.
