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.
