Babcock Noell technology significantly reduces emissions

August 03, 2016

At the Govora lignite-fired power plant in Romania, Bilfinger company Babcock Noell has equipped a boiler with a state-of-the-art flue gas desulfurization system. The technology reduces pollutant emissions by over 98 percent.

It was “a happy day” said Carmen Alexandrescu, Director of Vâlcea local government at a press conference following the completion of the project. The power plant will provide 70,000 inhabitants of the city of Râmnicu Vâlcea, capital of the Vâlcea county, with district heating. At the same time, the Romanians have also managed to comply with European directive 2001/80/EG for the limitation of atmospheric pollutant emissions of large combustion plants with the retrofitting of the desulfurization system.

The future plant operator, CET Govora, was extremely pleased with the exceptional performance of the plant at the press conference. The entire project team from Babcock Noell were particularly praised for their highly professional work.
