Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems has received an order from Polish power producer ENEA Wytwarzanie for two sets of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) type deNOx systems to be installed at Kozienice power station in Poland.
The high-performance systems will be installed in units 1 and 2 of the coal-fired thermal power station, and are expected to be in operation by the end of 2015 and May 2016 respectively.
MHPS deNOx systems can reduce NOx (nitrogen oxides) emissions for the plant by more than 80%, reducing air pollution.
It will thus be able to ensure that the power station operates in compliance with European regulations on thermal power plant emissions, which are scheduled to be tightened in 2016.
The Polish power station in Kozienice is located around 85km south south-east of Warsaw.
Units 1 and 2 at the plant each have energy generation capacity of 200MW.
MHPS, the independent developer for the deNOx systems, will be in charge of the entire operation starting from designing, manufacturing to testing operations at the facility.
Polish construction firm Erbud will be responsible for the civil engineering and installation works as a sub-contractor.
Before the receipt of this order, MHPS has been supplying flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems, which can remove sulphur oxides, at ENEA Wytwarzanie Power Station since 2001 and both deNOx and FGD systems at Siekierki Power Station in Poland.
With the tightening of standards on emissions, the company expects the demand for its deSOx and deNOx systems to grow in Europe and global markets.
