Combined heat and power - flue gas desulphurisation

Veolia and Alstom have signed a turnkey contract for the construction of a complete Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) plant, which will treat flue gases of two OP130 and three OP230 steam boilers at a combined heat and power plant in Lodz, Poland.

Station numbers K1, K2, K3, K6, K9 at Veolia Energia Lodz SA (CHP 3) project will be upgraded under the terms of the deal with completion of the desulphurisation plant due in early 2017.

Based on Alstom’s NID semi-dry desulphurisation technology, the plant at Lodz will use a six-module setup.

‘The FGD plant, upon completion, is expected to keep SO2 and dust concentration in flue gas below respectively 200 mg/Nm3 and 20 mg/Nm3 respectively, thus complying fully with European Directive regulating industrial emissions (IED), which would enable us to continue the operation of all steam boilers of CHP 3 beyond 2016 and in the same time significantly reduce our environmental footprint in Lodz region,’ said Janusz Cieślakowski, Investment and Maintenance Director for Veolia Energia Łódź SA.
