🏭 Exciting progress is being made on Phase 1 of the FGD Plant at the “Nikola Tesla A” power plant in Obrenovac, Serbia.
🔍 Phase 1 involves the processing of limestone, which means grinding and making a lime slurry. The lime slurry is then propelled through a pipeline to Phase 2, which includes absorbers with wet stacks that purify flue gasses. The gypsum suspension, a byproduct of this purification process, embarks on a circular journey back to Phase 1 through the pipeline network, where it is dried and deposited in a gypsum silo.
📸 The photos show the entire facility, the tallest being the gypsum silo, and the white building with the sloping roof is the limestone storage building.
Between them, you’ll spot the limestone mills, lime suspension tanks, and the necessary water. There are also the pipe bridges that provide pipelines which connect Phase 1 and Phase 2.
✅ We are pleased to share that Phase 1 is on track for completion within the next month.
At the core of this endeavor is the transformative impact on the Serbian environment.
Thanks to Mitsubishi Power’s cutting-edge FGD system, we anticipate a remarkable reduction of sulfur dioxide and particle emissions by a factor of 9. This equates to a reduction from approximately 74,000 tons to a mere 7,800 tons per year.
🌍 Now that’s a sustainable win!💪
Stay tuned for updates on Phase 2, next week, as we navigate the last steps of our journey towards a brighter, cleaner future.
