Turów power plant to cut emissions in half

Turów power plant to cut emissions in half
PGE GiEK - mining and conventional energy subsidiary of Poland’s biggest utility PGE - announced a PLN 500 million program to reduce emissions from the Turów power plant by 50 percent by end of 2015. The plant, located near the town of Bogatynia provides about 7 percent of electricity in Poland as well as over 75 percent industrial gas emissions in the Wrocław province, where the plant is located.

The project aims to build emissions inhibitors on the blocks 4, 5 and 6 of the power plant., with an aim to cut sulfur dioxide emissions by 3,300 tons annually and sulfur aerosols by 256 tons, amounting to about half of total emissions from the plant. The tender for the construction was won by a consortium of Babcock Noell and Bilfinger Infrastructure, who expect to finish the project by the end of 2015.

Almost half of the project was financed the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management in Wrocław. PGE GiEK is currently working to secure financing for the remaining blocks of the Turów plant. The entire project is part of the company’s obligation to comply with the EU’s Industrial Emissions Directive.
