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).
