On September 25th, 2015, ČKD Praha DIZ, member of the ČKD GROUP, put a modern energy source worth 1.015 billion CZK into trial operation and transferred it to the construction investor, Lovochemie, a.s. The construction of the new fluid boiler with a circulating layer represents the most important environmental construction at Lovochemie, a.s. Moreover, it represents an efficient replacement of the two original powder boilers from the 1960’s by a single boiler with the latest coal combustion technology and with emission parameters that comply with the strictest limits of the valid legislature.
The project of this investment unit included project engineering works, delivery of the given technology, assembly and putting the new fluid boiler with accessories, such as a control and management system, cleaning and emission monitoring, transport and storage of the operation media, compressor station, chemical water treatment plant, backup power supplies and revitalization of the energy production block and of the administrative building, into operation.
“The main added value of this delivery is a highly efficient source that fully complies with the EU emission limits valid from January 1st, 2016. Emissions of all monitored substances will decrease significantly. The most significant reduction applies to sulphur oxides emissions, which will drop, compared to the previous boilers, by more than 5 times to 400 mg/m3. Furthermore, this reduction is accompanied by an increase of the overall energy production efficiency by more than 4%,” said Tomáš Krenc, the ČKD Praha DIZ Project Implementation Director.
