Pollution control for Romania’s largest power plant

25 July 2008

Yokogawa has received an order from Austrian Energy & Environment, to supply electrical equipment and instrumentation for the flue gas desulphurisation systems at the Turceni thermal power plant in Romania. This contract is estimated to be worth €26million.

Yokogawa’s Austrian subsidiary will be in charge of control & instrumentation and overall project management, and its Austrian partners Siemens Elin and ELIN EBG Motoren will respectively provide electrical equipment and motors for various types of blowers.

The Turceni power plant, located in southwest Romania’s Gorj county, is this country’s largest coal-fired power plant. With a total capacity of 2,310 MW (330 MW x 7 units), it generates 10% of the country’s electricity.

As Romania joined the EU in 2007, it is required to bring its power plants’ sulphur dioxide (SO2) emissions into compliance with the EU environmental standards by 2011. Given this situation, the Turceni Thermal Power Plant Pollution Abatement Project has elected to make use of a yen-denominated ODA loan from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) to finance the installation of flue gas desulphurisation systems at the four facilities that it operates.

For this project, Yokogawa will provide its CENTUM VP integrated production control system; field devices such as DPharp EJX pressure/differential pressure transmitters, pH analysers, and temperature transmitters; the Plant Resource Manager (PRM) integrated device management tool; and the Exaquantum plant information management system. These products and systems will be delivered between 2009 and 2012, and will enter operation between the second half of 2010 and 2013, depending on power generation equipment requirements.
