The article presents information on the anatomy of the project on package-boiler. It states that the industrial-class watertube steam boilers are primarily assembled by shops and transported by rail, truck, or barge to their destination. It mentions that there are six distinct phases of work for the formation of a typical package-boiler project which includes project requirements and business case, budget, and detailed engineering.
