MHPS receives order for DeNOx system in Poland
Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS; Yokohama, Japan; www.mpshq.com) has received an order from ENEA Wytwarzanie S.A., a power producer in Poland, for two sets of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) deNOx system for installation at Units 1 and 2 of the company's Power Station in Kozienice. These high-performance systems reduce emissions of NOx (oxides of nitrogen) by more than 80%. They are scheduled to go into operation at Unit 1 in late 2015 and at Unit 2 in May 2016.
The Power Station in Kozienice, located some 85 km south-southeast of Warsaw, is one of Poland's largest coal-fired power plants. Units 1 and 2 have an output of 200 MW each. The new equipment will enable the power station to satisfy European regulations on thermal power plant emissions that are slated to be tightened in 2016, ensuring the Power Station's in Kozienice stable and continuous operation throughout the year.
The deNOx system on order features high-performance plate-type catalysts independently developed by MHPS. They are said to achieve outstanding NOx removal efficiency to meet the needs of a wide range of operating loads. MHPS will be in charge of all aspects from designing and manufacture to test operation. Civil engineering and installation work will be subcontracted by Erbud S.A., a local construction firm.
Prior to receipt of this order, MHPS (then Babcock-Hitachi K.K.) has been progressively supplying fluegas desulfurization (FGD) system, which remove sulfur oxides (SOx), to the ENEA Wytwarzanie Power Station since 2001. MHPS has been selected to provide five FGD systems, including two units currently being built, enabling to treat fluegas from all eleven of the power plant's units. For Unit 11, MHPS has received an order for a 1,000 MW ultra-supercritical pressure coal-fired power plant now under construction.
