Awarded the LARGEST order in our history from Doosan A/c NTPC, Barh

It is proud moment for all of us at KELD to have been awarded the largest single order in our entire history. M/s Doosan gave us the order for approximately Rs. 14.5Cr (USD 2M) for design, manufacture and supply of 1526 expansion joints within 10 months. It was a huge challenge as never before such a fete was achieved. We took the challenge and re-aligned our design and manufacturing processes to be able to meet this steep requirement. We started production in September 2016 and are happy to note that as on December 31, 2016 we have completed supply of the first unit (510 expansion joints). We are on track currently to meet the second unit delivery within 3 months (by March 2017).

Please watch this space as the content will be updated based on the dispatches of the second and third units.

KELD explores a different geography with Keld Stones, LLC

2016 seems to be a good year for KELD in terms of expansion. We have gone overseas by opening a company - Keld Stones, LLC in USA along with our partner Navkar, LLC. With this new company, we will get into the fabrication of natural stone products for the housing and real estate market of USA. We have opened a new office in Ohio and plan to start our manufacturing activities in early 2017.

KELD adds Gas Seal Panels into its product portfolio

As a part of our expansion drive, KELD has diversified into the manufacture of Gas Seal Panels thanks to the support or Flowserve Pte., Singalore. So far, we have manufactured 4 panels in total for them. To cater to the demands of this high quality stainless steel fabrication and instrumentation requirements, we have created a separate dedicated facility for this kind of work within our main manufacturing facility. This facility is equiped with all the equipment required for stainless steel and structural fabrication for panels and a separate instrumentation room for mouting equipments, tubing, and electrical wiring. A enclosed Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) Room is also built to facilitate internal and external testing prior to dispatch.

Completed Supply of 100% Sealing Damper to OMIFCO

KELD completed the supply of a large 100% sealing damper to OMIFCO in November 2013. This is to be installed in the existing GT exhaust ducting after the bypass stack and before the HRSG. This was a complicated damper for multiple reasons. There was very little space between the existing structure and the existing NMEJ at the HRSG I/L. The damper was to be designed to fit in this gap and offer a 100% seal for maintenance to be carried out upstream without shutting off the GT.

Self Certified Supplier Award from FLS

November 2012 took KELD one notch higher. Owing to their continuous and committed effort in improving quality, FLS bestowed the prestigious "Self Certified Supplier" award to KELD for their exemplary performance on account of quality. It was indeed an honour to receive the award from FLS CEO.

KELD's World Class integrated manufacturing facility commenced

In October 2012 KELD raced ahead and increased the gap with their competitors by moving into their World Class Integrated Manufacturing facility in Gummudipoondi near Chennai. This facility boasts of over 75,000 sq. ft. of shop floor space and has all the necessary infrastructure to process expansion joints and dampers under one roof. With this new facility, KELD has more than doubled its capacity and can process certain orders with short lead times as well.


KELD adds Industrial Dampers to its portfolio

Keeping with the strategy of diversifying into allied products, Keld Ellentoft India has tied up with a Canadian Damper manufacturer - MCM Steel, Inc. to design and manufacture all types of industrial dampers in India. This product not only complements its existing product range, it also offers a more comprehensive product array to its customers making KELD a one-stop shop for multiple products.

MCM Steel has been designing and manufacturing dampers for several years and has a strong research and development team. With their support and the intense training undergone by Keld personnel for design, manufacturing, inspection and installation, we are confident to meet even the most aggressive requirements on our customers. In fact, we are currently involved in giving a solution to a very unique application where the customer needs to replace the damper every six months and no other damper manufacturer in that region has been able to give a long-lasting solution.

With the power industry on the up-swing, Keld expects order from large players like Alstom, BGR Energy, Cethar Vessels, Thermax, etc. for power projects being executed in India and abroad.

KELD part of Commonwealth Games

It is indeed an honour to be a small part of the recently conducted Commonwealth games in New Delhi. In record time, Keld Ellentoft India successfully completed the supply and installation of expansion joints for a power plant that was set up near New Delhi (through Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited) to cater to the power requirements of the common wealth games. Keld's personnel not only worked round-the-clock to manufacture these expansion joints and send them to site, but also worked round-the-clock in adverse weather conditions to complete the erection in time for the Commonwealth games. Many units were in large sizes and had to be supplied in split condition. Keld's site personnel were able to complete these split units and install them at site. In fact, the customer also acknowledged and appreciated the efforts of our site personnel for the outstanding work done against many odds to complete the erection on time. The largest size of expansion joint installed at this site was 7.8m x 7.8m.

Largest Supplies to 9mn MT Steel Plant in Oman

In 2003, Keld Ellentoft India had decided to expand its wings in the global market and become a world class global supplier. This year, Keld has added one more feather to its cap by just completing one of the largest supplies to a 9-million tonne steel plant in Oman. Keld manufactured and shipped 310 expansion joints for various applications in the plant. Keld's experienced site personnel have been deputed to supervise the installation of these joints. Before this, Keld had supplied all expansion joints to the world's largest Cement plant in USA. No wonder Keld has been winning the Highest Exporter award in its category by Engineering Export Promotion Council (EEPC) two years in a row.

Supply of Dampers to 1000°C application without refractory lining

KELD successfully executed a recent order from Pioneer Cements, UAE for their high temperature application. The design temperature was 1000°C with a static pressure of 300 mmWC. The customer needed >99% sealing efficiency and hence a typical refractory lined design would not be suitable. KELD designed and supplied 2 guillotine dampers and 2 butterfly dampers manufactured with a special alloy that could withstand these high temperatures.
