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).

ACTIV is able to maintain the support of MHPS on site during COVID-19

Due to the coronavirus restrictions, our partner Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) had to withdraw its experts from the construction sites Ugljevik and TENT A3-A6 Obrenovac in April 2020. ACTIV, however, was able to continue the work, despite the current restrictions, with the local teams that have been working on both construction sites since the beginning of both flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) projects. As a result, MHPS was able to continue to fulfil its contractual obligations for both projects.

For ACTIV, it is especially important in the current situation to be a reliable and stable partner for our business partners and customers. The employees of the ACTIV teams on site naturally adhere to the strict official regulations in their interpersonal dealings in order to prevent infection with coronavirus.

We would like to thank our local employees most sincerely for their work, for their dedication and commitment in the current situation!

Start of desulphurisation unit TPP Ugljevik

A three-month trial operation of flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) at TPP Ugljevik started on 13 December 2019. The EUR 80 million investment will reduce sulphur dioxide (SO2) emissions to 200 milligrams per cubic metre from 16,000 milligrams per cubic metre, meaning that emissions of harmful gases will be reduced 80-fold, thus fulfilling all the strict requirements of European legislation in the field of ecology.

The work of one of the partners on this project, the company RUDIS, was therefore also successfully completed. We thank the company RUDIS for the good cooperation on this project. Learn more:

From hydrogen-powered gas turbines to biomass co-firing

The latest “MHPS Energy Conference for Southeast Europe” in Portorož, Slovenia, presented ways and means to clean up conventional power plants. About 120 attendees from business and politics followed the lectures from MHPS’s experts and discussed the latest developments in, for example, power plant engineering, flue gas cleaning or the role of hydrogen in the power sector. What was very clear by the end of the two-day conference: No matter how you want to achieve a low-carbon system – Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems can offer the right tools, products and services.

The event took place on June 4-5, 2019. ACTIV Project Management GmbH actively supported the cooperation partner in the organization of the event.

ACTIV positively accentuated in the field of international project management – POWER PLANTS 2018 conference in Zlatibor

From 5 until 8 November 2018, the Society of Thermal Engineers of Serbia together with the Serbian energy supply company (EPS) organised the conference POWER PLANTS 2018 in the Zlatibor mountains. The international event focused on the current need to bring power plant systems in Serbia up to a level that from an ecological perspective approaches a level accepted by the industrial countries of the European Union. On the one hand, environmental problems were pointed out and on the other, technologies to reduce SOx, NOx, PM and CO2 emissions addressed. The numerous participants included university professors, experts from the public sector and private companies.

A series of talks and presentations were offered during the conference. Representatives of the large corporation Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) and its subsidiary Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe (MHPSE) gave two talks at the conference. In its talk entitled State-of-the-Art MHPS AQCS Technologies (FGD, ESP, SCR), MHPS concentrated on the control systems for air quality, whereas in its presentation entitled Benefits from power and energy solution business (PESB) MHPSE addressed the benefits of the electricity and energy business. In both talks, the company ACTIV Project Management was positively accentuated as a competent and reliable partner for international project management. This recognition is attributable to the successful support from the cooperation partners on the south-eastern European market and on the flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) project in the thermal power plant TENT Obrenovac A3-A6.
