Successful Completion of Europe’s Largest Environmental Project

On April 25, 2024, we marked the completion of Europe’s largest environmental project related to thermal power plants—and the third largest of its kind in the world—at the Nikola Tesla A facility in Obrenovac, Serbia.

This significant achievement features the successful installation of Flue Gas Desulfurization technology using a wet process, developed by our partner and leading consortium, Mitsubishi Power. The process utilizes limestone as a reagent and produces gypsum as a byproduct, valuable in construction.

The new system will maintain sulfur oxide emissions in flue gases below 200 mg/Nm3 and PM emissions under 20 mg/Nm3. This represents a reduction of thirty times of previous sulfur dioxide emissions levels, ensuring the plant meets all environmental goals while continuing energy production at the highest European standards.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Mitsubishi Power and Jedinstvo from Sevojno for their collaboration, and to Elektroprivreda Srbije for their trust in Activ. Congratulations to all parties involved on this landmark achievement!

🏭 Project Update on the Phase 2 of the FGD Plant at the “Nikola Tesla A” power plant in Obrenovac, Serbia

👉 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.

📸 Take a look at the progress in the accompanying photos. There you can see our impressive absorbers in action.
🌉 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.

🔧 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 – a display of precise craftsmanship.

✅ 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 “Nikola Tesla A” power plant in Obrenovac, Serbia

🏭 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!💪
