FGD TENT B project in Serbia

The flue gas desulfurization (FGD) plant removes sulfur dioxides (SO2) from flue gas produced by boilers, furnaces, and other sources. Construction of such plant in Serbia will significantly improve environmental protection and ecology.

Guided by the knowledge and experience of our employees, as well as the trust shown so far by Mitsubishi Power, construction of plants on TENT A and TENT B reduces air pollution, as well as improves energy efficiency in the country.

Construction of FGD plant on both TPP Nikola Tesla B units should reduce the total amount of sulfur dioxide emissions from 3,000 milligrams to 130 milligrams per cubic meter.

It is estimated that in addition to the above, the commissioning of this plant, will reduce the level of emitted solid particles into the atmosphere from the current 50 milligrams to below 10 milligrams per cubic meter.

FGD process has a gypsum of “euro” quality (more than 95 percent purity) widely used in construction as a bi-product. Mixed with ash and slag, it is used in road construction.

TENT B flue gas desulphurisation project will reduce the level of sulfur dioxide emissions from 80,000 tons per year, to 4,500 tons, which is about 20 times less.

All co-operating partners share a strategic vision, pursue compatible targets, and contribute to the progress of the project.

FGD TENT A project in Serbia

Since 2019, Activ has been working on a large and important project that contributes to Serbia’s compliance with EU environmental standards and serves as a support for future EU accession efforts.

The construction site of the largest flue gas desulphurization project (FGD) for improving the environment in Serbia is progressing well. The expert teams of all partners cooperating on this project, are currently engaged at the Power Plant Nikola Tesla A in the commissioning, and installation of the pipelines, absorbers bottom, and wet stack.

On this project, Activ cooperates with longtime partner Mitsubishi Power. Our part is to care about the project – project management. Mitsubishi Power parts are the flue gas desulphurization system and the whole technology.

For the third year in a row, the Trebinje Energy Summit can boast of an excellent organization

Many scientists, professionals, and decision-makers from the energy sector, business, and industry attended the Summit again this year. This year’s event started with the expression “Building the energy future of the Western Balkans together”. The event was focused on the future of energy, fossil fuel divestment, and capacity building based on renewable energy sources.

Natural resources need to be carefully preserved and nurtured. The Trebinje Energy Summit provided an opportunity to hear from environmental experts who explained how to increase electricity production from renewable sources.

Together, we defined goals and strategy, which will enable the Western Balkans to join the European and world trends of the energy transition.

ACTIV’s third ground-breaking ceremony for FGD projects

On 01 December 2020 in Obrenovac, the ground-breaking ceremony took place for one of the most important ecological projects of the flue gas desulphurisation plants (FGD) – for the thermal power plant Nikola Tesla B Obrenovac (TENT B).

Shinichiro Mitsuyama, the managing director of the Mitsubishi Power Branch office in Belgrade, expressed satisfaction that Mitsubishi Power is engaged in the construction of the FGD plant, which will contribute to the improvement of environmental protection thanks to the best Japanese technology. He further pointed out that the company would build a reliable plant in a timely manner, which would be a true display of friendship and cooperation between Serbia and Japan.

The deadline for the completion of the project and the takeover of the plant by the state-owned electric utility power company EPS is scheduled for March 2024. With the construction of the FGD plant for both units of thermal power plant Nikola Tesla B, it is expected to reduce the total amount of sulfur dioxide emissions from 3000 mg/Nm3 and reduce them to the level of 130 mg/Nm3.

Trial operation of FGD plant at TPP Ugljevik continued

The company Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) withdrew its experts due to the COVID-19 epidemic in April 2020, which partially stopped the trial work. At the end of July 2020, the plant was put into operation again, and the TPP Ugljevik reduced the level of air pollution significantly below the prescribed environmental standards. As of 26 July 2020, the flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) plant in the TPP Ugljevik is back in operation. According to Milutin Tasovac (executive director of TPP Ugljevik), it is showing excellent results, and the trial work will last another 15 days.

Serbian desulphurisation project will be completed by May 2023

The largest environmental project in Serbia regarding the construction of the flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) system at the TPP Nikola Tesla A in Obrenovac is progressing well. This project not only ensures clean air for Obrenovac, but also guarantees the extension of the largest EPS TPP TENT A. The contract for the FGD system in TENT A was signed in 2017 and the plant will be operational from May 2023. This will reduce SO2 emissions at units A3, A4, A5 and A6 as much as 9-fold, from about 74,000 tons to 7,747 tons per year.

ACTIV Project Management GmbH is responsible for the project management in conjunction with the cooperation partners Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) and its Duisburg-based subsidiary, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe GmbH (MHPSE).

Congratulations once again to MHPS

In addition to the excellent placement in the area of flue gas desulphurisation plants (FGD) in 2019, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) now also ranks first in market share by megawatts for gas turbine orders in 2020. According to data obtained from the McCoy Power Report first quarter global orders of 2,638 MW brought MHPS market share to 28.5% globally. This increase in gas turbine market share was largely responsible for worldwide order booking increasing by 19.7% during MHPS’ fiscal year ending 31 March 2020.
