China Continues to Invest in New Coal-fired Power Plants and Air Pollution Control

Oct 29 2010 Read 1839 Times

China has had more coal-fired capacity than the U.S. for some time. It has also had more electrostatic precipitators. Now it has surpassed any country in terms of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems. In the not too distant future, it will become the number one operator of SCR systems for NOx Control.

The McIlvaine Company tracks each Chinese power project and also the retrofits of air pollution control systems in a service entitled Chinese Utility Plans. Here are some recent projects:

Coal Units Approved:

2×600 MW Supercritical Units at Datang Huayin Youxian Power Plant
On July 9, 2010, two 600 MW supercritical units at Datang Huayin Youxian Power Plant were approved by the National Development & Reform Committee. The two units will consume about 2,900,000 tons of coal each year.

2×600 MW Units at Datang Huaibei Hushan Power Plant
On July 18, 2010, under the "Build Big & Close Small" policy, two units (2×600 MW) at Datang Huaibei Hushan Power Plant were approved by the National Development & Reform Committee. Highly efficient dust removal, FGD and SCR will be installed.

2×1000 MW Units at Datang Guangdong Chaozhou Power Plant
On July 22, 2010, No. 3 and No. 4 units (2×1000 MW) at Datang Guangdong Chaozhou Power Plant were approved by the National Development & Reform Committee. The two ultra supercritical units will be installed with limestone wet FGD and LNB. The general engineering technology will be designed by American Ever Cleaning Environmental, Inc.

2×300 MW Units at Guodian Jilin Longhua Changchun No. 1 Thermal Power Plant ~
On July 9, 2010, two units (2×300 MW) at Guodian Jilin Longhua Changchun No. 1 Thermal Power Plant were approved by the National Development & Reform Committee. The total investment will be RMB $2.87 billion.

Air Quality Retrofits:

FGD Project on 125 MW Unit at Huadian Inter Shiliquan Power Plant Started Construction
The FGD project on the 125 MW No. 5 unit at Huadian Inter Shiliquan Power Plant started construction on April 29, 2010 and will use the wet limestone-gypsum method. The engineering project general contractor is Wuhan Longjing Environmental Engineering Co., Ltd.

SCR System on 1000 MW Unit at Huaneng Yuhuan Power Plant Commercial Operation with 82 percent removal efficiency
On May 20, 2010, the SCR system on 1000 MW No. 2 unit at Huaneng Yuhuan Power Plant was put into commercial operation after 168-hour trial operation. The average NOx removal efficiency was 82.53 percent and the designed NOx removal efficiency was 80 percent. All four units (4×1000 MW) at Huaneng Yuhuan Power Plant are planned to be retrofit with SCR systems.

SCR System on 300 MW Unit at Guangdong Yudean Group Huangpu Power Plant Commercial Operation
On June 7, 2010, the SCR system on a 300 MW unit at Guangdong Yudean Group Power Plant was put into commercial operation after 168-hour trial operation. This project started construction on January 16, 2010.
