Our experience has evolved over the years by working in many different industries such as Sugar cane factories, Power stations, Automotive factories, Waste to Energy sites and Food & Drink companies, which has led to our ability in designing, supplying and installing a wide range of steam boiler plants for various customer requirements.
- The conversion and optimization of biomass plant firing systems and boiler types, to accommodate a range of caloric levels from different fuel handling systems and the cleaning requirements from different dust carry-over levels.
- The updates and modifications needed to existing boilerhouse control systems, to support new customer requirements such as 72h unmanned operation or interfacing to existing control room equipment.
- Pipework modifications and replacement to existing steam, gas, oil, water and air circuits to extend the longevity of existing boilerhouse plants.
Boiler Repairs and Re-design

TIBS can offer installation, annual maintenance and refurbishment services for steam turbines and are independent from all manufacturer types. Our engineers are experienced at working on a selection of turbine types and working under time critical conditions, when the turbine is being serviced in planned outages or being repaired in unplanned emergency shutdowns.
Bagasse-fired Boilers & Grates
TIBS can offer specialist suspension firing systems to support the finer by-products produced by modern sugar cane milling processes. We have converted many pile burning boilers into suspension firing boilers, so that the finer raw material stays within the boiler combustion chamber, to ensure no combustible material passes through the exhaust duct system. We also have experience in retrofitting dump grate systems with steam pinhole grate systems.
Thorne International Boiler Services Ltd are experienced at designing, supplying and installing biomass installations, which can be designed for wood, general, animal and clinical waste fuel systems. We will provide initial design layouts after consultation with the client, project manage the complete boiler-house installation including pipework and control & instrumentation and then carry out the commissioning process with our experienced in-house team.
Control & Instrumentation
TIBS control and instrumentation department can design, supply and install a wide range of C&I packages for all steam boiler plant related applications. Our expertise is in designing one off special applications, system updates and interface packages to systems already installed. We also have C&I engineers who are experienced on burner controls and can carry out diagnostic checks on the interface between the boiler controls and the burner controls, to ensure both systems are working correctly.
Pipework and Valve Services
TIBS can offer coded-welded pipework systems including control and instrumentation packages for steam, water, air, gas and oil based equipment. Our in-house coded welders are experienced at welding carbon steel and stainless steel pipework systems using arc, MIG and TIG welding sets respectively. We can also carry out pipework repairs and modifications such as single spool sections, replacement of valve units and additional valve systems installed in parallel or series at a competitive rates.
