Alstom SA announced that it has been awarded a contract to refurbish two boilers, units K3 and K4, in the Pocerady power plant with the purpose to reduce the nitrogen oxide (NOx) level in the flue gas to 200mg/Nm3, which is required to comply with the European Industrial Emissions Directive (applicable for all power sources producing more than 50MW). The Pocerady project is set-up as a turnkey refurbishment project. The modifications for the two 200 MWe pulverized lignite coal boilers include an adjustment and modernization of the combustion system to reduce the NOx that is formed during the combustion process and the addition of a Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) installation to further remove the nitrogen oxide from the flue gas. The project is scheduled to be completed early 2015, almost a year before the European directive will come into force. The contract is worth nearly EUR 10 million.
