Valmet FGD to prolong life of Polish CHP plant

A combined heat and power plant at Janikowo in Poland is to benefit from being equipped with a EUR20m flue gas desulphurization plant (FGD).

Valmet has signed a contract with CIECH Soda Polska S.A. for the facility, the second order of a FGD plant from CIECH Soda Polska, having requested similar in August. That request included a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) plant.

"This investment will extend the lifetime of the Janikowo CHP plant and help us in complying with the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) by decreasing our sulfur dioxide (SO2) and dust emissions," says Marcin Malek, Director of Investments at CIECH Soda Polska.

The Janikowo CHP plant provides energy to the Janikowo Chemical Plant, owned by the Polish CIECH group.

The CHP plant is in the national transition plan in Poland for compliance with the IED and will have to comply with tight annual emission ceilings for sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and dust starting in 2017.

Valmet's delivery includes a wet limestone based flue gas desulphurization (FGD) plant to remove SO2 from the flue gases of two existing coal fired steam boilers, each with 140 tonnes per hour steam capacity. The FGD is planned to be in commercial operation in September 2017.
