Kelag Renewable Energy 2023 Conference

As we move further into December, it’s a great time to look back at the impactful events of the past month. One such event was the “Renewable Energy 2023 Conference“, hosted by Kelag.

It was a gathering that brought together a high-caliber audience of experts, innovating for a sustainable future.

The central theme, “Cooperation and participation – a new dynamic for the energy transition?” resonated deeply with our mission at ACTIV. With over 30 years of experience in project management and energy solutions, we understand the significance of collaborative efforts in achieving sustainable energy solutions.

๐ŸŒŸ The conference, attended by around 300 participants, was an excellent platform to reinforce the importance of strengthening cooperation for a sustainable energy future.

Danny Gรผthlein, CEO of Kelag, highlighted the need for a networked, complex, and fragmented approach to reach the ambitious target of 100% energy from renewable sources by 2040.

Reinhard Draxler, CEO of Kelag, further emphasized the role of long-term cooperation and transnational projects in local development, security of supply, and climate protection.

Anders Indset’s keynote speech on the symbiosis between human, machine, and ecology for the energy transition was particularly enlightening.

As a proud and long-standing partner of Kelag, ACTIV is committed to contributing to renewable energy projects.

We’re excited to continue this journey, bringing our expertise in project management and energy solutions to the forefront.

There Is No Planet B

As global carbon emissions continue to surge, reaching record levels in 2023, the urgency to address climate change has never been more evident. ๐Ÿ†˜

The recent report by the Global Carbon Project highlights the concerning reality that our planet is on track to burn more fossil fuels this year, contributing to a 1.1% increase in carbon dioxide emissions. ๐Ÿ˜จ

We are glad to see over 117 governments at the Dubai summit committing to triple the world’s renewable energy capacity and double energy efficiency improvements by 2030. ๐Ÿ™Œ As a company dedicated to sustainable practices, we understand the importance of such initiatives.

However, the road ahead requires more than just commitments; it demands innovative solutions and collaborative efforts. ๐Ÿค

The challenges outlined in the recent report emphasize the need for accelerated decarbonization of economies worldwide. The international community must work together to surpass the 1.5ยฐC target outlined in the Paris Agreement and ensure a sustainable future for generations to come. ๐ŸŒฑ

At Activ, we are committed to using our expertise in Air Quality Control Systems (AQCS), Green Technology, and Waste-to-Energy Solutions to create a more sustainable and eco-friendly world for generations to come. ๐Ÿซถ

Congratulations to Elektroprivreda Srbije (EPS) on its 130th anniversary

Today, we extend our warmest congratulations to Elektroprivreda Srbije (EPS) on reaching a historic milestone – 130th anniversary. ๐Ÿ‘

We are incredibly proud to have been a part of their journey, working hand-in-hand with EPS for over a decade.

Our collaboration began with the refurbishment of mills and the NOx emission reduction system in the TENT Obrenovac A Power Plant on Unit A5, and it has evolved to encompass two of the most significant environmental projects in Serbia โ€“ the construction of flue gas desulfurization systems in the Nikola Tesla Power Plants A and B in Obrenovac.๐Ÿ”‹โšก๏ธ

Over the past 130 years, EPS has navigated an arduous journey, surviving many challenges. Throughout it all, EPS has remained steadfast in its mission of power generation and distribution.

At Activ, we look forward to deepening our collaboration with EPS in this evolving landscape. ๐Ÿค

Happy 130th birthday, Elektroprivreda Srbije! ๐ŸŽ‚ ๐ŸŽˆ
Here’s to an even brighter and more sustainable future. ๐Ÿฅ‚

๐Ÿ“ขA project status update on the FGD Plant at the Nikola Tesla B Power Plant in Obrenovac, Serbia๐Ÿšง

Here’s a quick snapshot on our progress of the FGD Plant TENT B project:

๐Ÿ”ท Absorber B2: Sandblasting of the internal surfaces is well underway, covering approx. 2800 square meters! This marks the final stage before gumming, where we anticipate rubberizing around 3800 square meters.

๐Ÿ”ท Second Absorber: We’re wrapping up the preparation of cell surfaces, signaling another significant milestone!

๐ŸŒ Environmental Impact: Our dedication to environmental sustainability is unwavering. With the completion of the new desulfurization unit:
– We will reduce SO2 emissions from 80,000 tons annually to a remarkable 4,500 tons โ€” that’s a 20-fold decrease! ๐Ÿ“‰
– We’re aligning ourselves with the European Union’s Industrial Emissions – Directive (IED) and the new BREF-Best Available Techniques reference docs, aiming for a 96% cut in the plant’s sulfur dioxide emissions. ๐ŸŒณ

โž•Stay tuned for more updates on our journey towards a sustainable and environmentally responsible future. ๐ŸŒฑ
๐ŸคTogether, we can make a difference!

๐Ÿญ Project Update on the Phase 2 of the FGD Plant at the โ€œNikola Tesla Aโ€ power plant in Obrenovac, Serbia

๐Ÿ‘‰ The lime slurry made in Phase 1 is propelled to Phase 2 through a pipeline. Phase 2 consists of two absorbers with wet stacks, which purify flue gasses. The byproduct of this purification process is the gypsum suspension, which then embarks on a circular journey back to Phase 1.

๐Ÿ“ธ Take a look at the progress in the accompanying photos. There you can see our impressive absorbers in action.
๐ŸŒ‰ Another key feature is the pipe bridge that carries the pipelines which transport the lime suspension to the absorbers and return the gypsum suspension to Phase 1.

๐Ÿ”ง A major milestone: The flue gas absorber ducts are in their final stages. With all components expertly lifted and welded, the focus has shifted to insulation and panel installations โ€“ a display of precise craftsmanship.

โœ… We are excited to share that Phase 2 is well underway and is projected to be successfully completed by the end of November.

Project Status: FGD Plant at the โ€œNikola Tesla Aโ€ power plant in Obrenovac, Serbia

๐Ÿญ Exciting progress is being made on Phase 1 of the FGD Plant at the โ€œNikola Tesla Aโ€ power plant in Obrenovac, Serbia.

๐Ÿ” 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.

๐Ÿ“ธ 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.

โœ… 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.

๐ŸŒ Now that’s a sustainable win!๐Ÿ’ช

Stay tuned for updates on Phase 2, next week, as we navigate the last steps of our journey towards a brighter, cleaner future.

FBiH’s Transformative Energy Legislation for a Cleaner Future

Amidst ongoing discussions surrounding energy production methods, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) has recently taken a monumental step by adopting a transformative Law on Electricity, ushering in European standards, and shaping the future of the energy sector.

This law regulates energy policy and planning, as well as energy activities and permits. It also governs the regulation of construction of power plants, electricity production and distribution, and the supply and trade of electricity.

On top of that, FBiH is moving towards a sustainable future with the Law on Renewable Energy Sources and Efficient Cogeneration. This introduces prosumers and offers a number of benefits to entrepreneurs.

๐Ÿ’šFBiH is taking big strides towards greener energy. These laws boost strategic planning, transparent investments, and a protection system for vulnerable electricity customers.

At Activ we welcome these forward-thinking initiatives as crucial milestones in the journey towards a more environmentally conscious and economically resilient energy future. ๐ŸŒ
