Alstom will cut NOx emissions at Kladno power plant (Czech Rep.)

Alstom and Alpiq Generation have signed a contract for the modernisation of the 400 MW power plant operated by Alpiq Generation (CZ) in Kladno. The contract is valued at over €4m and will reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 50% in the Kladno region.

The existing coal-fired fluidized bed boilers will be refurbished in 2014 in this first project of its kind in the Czech Republic.
In 2010, the EU released the Industrial Emissions directive, which will come into effect in 2016, requiring combustion plants producing more than 50 MW to cut nitrogen oxide emissions down to 200 mg/Nm3. Alstom technology will help Alpiq Generation (CZ), a power utility company active in Central Bohemia and in Zlin, to meet these limits a year in advance resulting in an immediate improvement in air quality upon completion of the project.
