The Clyde Bergemann Power Group Europe (CBPG) has been awarded a contract to design, supply and commission SO2 and dust reduction systems for the Bedzin cogeneration plant in Poland.

CBPG’s scope for the project includes a Circulating Dry Scrubber (CDS), a Pulse Jet Fabric Filter (PJFF) system and associated material handling systems to reduce SO2 to 130 µ/m3 and dust to 15 mg/m3.
CBPG’s customer is SBB Energy, a Polish engineering company and the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor providing the full package of DeNOx and DeSOx control for the Będzin cogeneration plant.

The operator, Elektrociepłownia Będzin S.A., saw the need to adopt the plant to meet newly defined Emission Limit Values (ELV) that are part of the European Industrial Emissions Directive (IED). The IED entered into force in June 2011 and requires existing large combustion plants to meet minimum standards for the emissions of toxic air pollutants such as acid gases and particulate matters in a short term time.

The Będzin project ties together the expertise of three Clyde Bergemann subsidiaries to offer an optimal solution: Clyde Bergemann Polska coordinates the project close to the customer and is responsible for the local fabrication and services. They are supported by Clyde Bergemann Doncaster (UK) who supply all associated material handling systems. The CDS and PJFF technology is provided by Clyde Bergemann Hanover, part of the Clyde Bergemann Power Group Americas and core competence center for air pollution control solutions.

Design work for the project has already begun with implementation scheduled to start in the first half of 2015.
