Grupa Enea’s new 1075 MW power plant transferred to operation

Grupa Enea is opening a new chapter in the history of the Polish energy sector, by transferring to operation an investment that is important for the national power and electricity system -- a 1075 MW gross supercritical parameters power unit in Elektrownia Kozienice (power plant). On 19 December 2017 an investment transfer to operation certificate has been signed, thus officially confirming completion of the unit construction. The most modern power generating unit in the country strengthens Poland's energy security   and Grupa Enea's market position.

The so-called B11 [Unit 11], as referred to by its abbreviation, is the Grupa Enea's largest investment. A high-performance power unit has a gross power of 1,075 MW. Through the use of advanced technological solutions for supercritical steam parameters the unit achieves the efficiency at the level of 45.6%, which allows for the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by about 25% in relation to emissions from the existing coal-fired units.

The most modern solutions in the scope of boiler, turbine and generator design of the new unit in Kozienice, allow to obtain the same amount of electrical power with with a lower consumption of fuel, which is hard coal. . This allows the B11 to achieve the best environmental parameters and to optimize the cost of power generation. 1075 MW power, high efficiency and high availability of the unit of over 92% make the B11 a record-breaker in the history of the domestic energy sector. The unit is also one of the largest and most efficient of this type in the world.

The B11 strengthens exponentially the Grupa Enea's and Poland's power-generating capacities, thus increasing the country's energy security.

Environment-friendly power

The unit has been designed to meet the most stringent environmental standards introduced in the European Union. The B11 not only meets, but also exceeds the requirements coming into effect from the 2021, pursuant to the guidelines of the Industrial Emissions Directive. This result has been achieved through the use of modern systems and installations, including the SCR (selective catalytic reduction), electrofilters and Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) with wet lime method. For the environmental protection also the unit's high efficiency is of significant importance. The new unit in Elektrownia Kozienice also saves water -  the unit operates in the so-called closed circuit. This is allowed by the 185-meter high cooling tower. Its task is to lower the temperature of water used in a closed circuit for cooling the entire system. During the unit's operation, this gigantic structure mainly emits water vapor.

Challenging investment from the safety perspective

Construction works on the 1,075 MW unit began in 2012 and the cornerstone for the B11 was laid on 21 November [2012]. The General Contractor for the investment was a consortium consisting of Hitachi Mitsubishi Power Systems Europe GmbH (MHPSE) - one of the world leaders in power-generation installation and Polimex-Mostostal - a Polish leader in the implementation of power and infrastructure investments. The Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Group supplied the boiler with coal bunkers, mills and combustion control instrumentation/devices.
The turbine and generator set that are the heart of the new unit, along with their components and flue gas desulphurization equipment come from the Japan-based parent company Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Ltd. Polimex-Mostostal was responsible for key civil, structural and finishing works.
At its peak, some 3200 specialists were working on the construction site at the same time. The entire project was composed of about 30 thousand specific tasks. Their precise execution has resulted today, following many successful tests and trials, that the entire complex installation generates electricity.

Statements during ceremony:

KRZYSZTOF TCHÓRZEWSKI, MINISTER OF ENERGY:

In the coming years the Polish energy sector will face many new challenges  among others, in connection with the need to meet the requirements of EU climate policy. [To confront these challenges] new investments in power generation facilities are needed. Enea's modern and technologically advanced project  in Kozienice is an important element of the energy sector modernization. Its implementation is consistent    with the Ministry of Energy policies.

SATOSHI UCHIDA, CEO OF MITSUBISHI HITACHI POWER SYSTEMS EUROPE

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has supplied all core components, such as steam turbine, generator, coal-fired boiler and associated components as well as the flue gas cleaning system.  It is a great honour for us to contribute to Poland by completing Kozienice Unit 11 and by dispatching stable and economical electricity to this beautiful country.  During the construction phase we successfully overcame challenges and hardships owing to the sincere support by ENEA and all Polish people involved.

MHPS to supply two Sets of the World’s Largest Desulfurization Systems in Serbia

Order for 1,300 MW Nikola Tesla A Coal-fired Power Plant is Second from Western Balkans Region

YOKOHAMA, JAPAN (September 11, 2017)– Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) has received an order for two sets of one of the world's largest flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems for the Nikola Tesla A coal-fired power plant in Serbia. The FGD systems will reduce sulfur dioxide (SO2) and particulates emissions to meet EU environmental standards and support Serbia's future accession efforts. The systems are scheduled to begin operations in the first half of 2021. This is the first time MHPS has received an order for FGD systems from Serbia. This also becomes the second order for coal-fired power plants in the Western Balkans region, following the order for similar systems for the Ugljevik Power Plant, which is presently under construction, in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Nikola Tesla A power plant is operated by Electric Power Industry of Serbia (EPS) and consists of six units with a total generating capacity of 1,720 megawatts (MW). It is located some 40 kilometers southwest of Belgrade and is Serbia's largest power plant. The newly ordered two sets of FGD systems whose flue gas desulfurization capacity is 650 MW each are to be installed in units 3 through 6, which have a total output of 1,300 MW. For this project, MHPS will serve as leader of a consortium together with Itochu Corporation and MPP "JEDINSTVO" a.d. (JDS), a Serbian construction firm. The project will be financed by the Japanese Official Development Assistant (ODA) organized by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

MHPS, supported by its European subsidiary based in Duisburg, Germany, will be responsible for project management, design, supplying main systems and dispatching technical advisors for installation. Itochu will mainly handle commercial issues. JDS will act as local partner for construction management and civil engineering, including design, installation and local procurement.

The Nikola Tesla A power plant uses lignite coal as a fuel, which has higher levels of sulfur and lower caloric value compared with other coal types. The installation of MHPS's FGD systems will reduce emissions of SO2 and particulates. SO2 emissions will be cut by 97%, enabling a SO2 level lower than the 200mg/Nm3*, in compliance with the European Industrial Emissions Directive (IED).

MHPS's FGD technologies for lignite-fired boilers, along with its successful track-record supplying more than 300 units, were key factors in its selection for this order.

MHPS will continue to reduce environmental impact by proposing high-performance and high-efficiency air quality control systems such as FGD and SCR and electrostatic precipitators for areas where demand is growing due the reinforcement of emissions regulations in Europe and the world.

* Note: mg = milligram. Nm3 = normal cubic meter, a unit to express the amount of gas present in a volume of one cubic meter at 0 celsius and 1 atmospheric pressure.

Die herausfordernde Marktlage im Kraftwerksbau zwingt den Anlagenbauer Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe GmbH (MHPSE) zur Neuausrichtung seiner Unternehmensstrategie und zum Abbau von Arbeitsplätzen. Das Unternehmen beschäftigt derzeit am Stammsitz rund 1.000 Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter.

 

Geschäftsführung und Betriebsrat der Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe GmbH (MHPSE) haben Gespräche mit dem Ziel eines möglichst sozialverträglichen Stellenabbaus und einer Straffung der Unternehmensstruktur begonnen. Dieser soll im Laufe des Frühjahrs realisiert werden.

In den vergangenen zehn Jahren hat die MHPSE in Deutschland und international Aufträge für Kraftwerke oder deren Kernkomponenten im Wert von mehreren Milliarden Euro erfolgreich abgewickelt. Doch der Einbruch des Marktes für den Neubau von Kraftwerken in Deutschland und in Westeuropa bedingt den Abbau von mehr als einem Drittel der Arbeitsplätze.

Rainer Kiechl, Vorsitzender der MHPSE-Geschäftsführung: „Die Energiewende hat im Bereich der klassischen Stromerzeugung zu Strukturbrüchen in der gesamten Branche geführt. Wir konnten uns dem nur teilweise entziehen, indem wir frühzeitig Märkte wie Polen oder Südosteuropa erschlossen haben und dort sehr erfolgreich agieren. Aber dies konnte den nahezu kompletten Wegfall des Kernmarktes nicht vollständig kompensieren. Wir haben auch frühzeitig in neue Technologien investiert, die etwa als Stromspeicher die volatilen erneuerbaren Energien ideal ergänzen. Wir haben eine langfristige Strategie entwickelt, die uns durch die nächsten Jahre führt und danach auch wieder in eine Wachstumsphase bringen kann, abhängig vom Markt und von den politischen Rahmenbedingungen. In der aktuellen Situation ist die sozialverträgliche Anpassung der Personalstärke leider unvermeidlich."

Neben dem Neubau – vor allem in vielversprechenden Märkten – wird sich das Unternehmen künftig vor allem auf Anlagenoptimierung, Kraftwerksservice, Rauchgasreinigungssysteme (AQCS) und innovative Produkte / Lösungen konzentrieren. Diese Strategie wird vom Gesellschafter – der weltweit tätigen Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. – unterstützt. Rainer Kiechl ergänzt: „Wir bleiben ein Kompetenzzentrum für Kraftwerkstechnik im weltweiten MHPS-Verbund. Es ist unser erklärtes Ziel, im Bereich der Stromproduktion ein führendes europäisches Unternehmen zur Reduzierung der CO2-Emissionen zu werden."
