Alstom and energy company EZ have signed a contract worth approximately 11 million (CZK 300 million) for another stage of the modernisation of Poerady power plant in the Czech Republic.

Under the contract Alstom will refurbish another two 200 MWe pulverised lignite coal units, boilers 2 and 5, at the Poerady power plant. The Poerady project includes a significant adjustment of the combustion system to reduce the nitrogen oxide (NOx) that is formed during the combustion process and the addition of a Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction installation to further remove NOx from the flue gas. The scope and technical solutions are similar to the refurbishment project for boilers 3 and 4 which has been awarded to Alstom in October 2013.

The project is scheduled to be completed in 2015, before the European Directive that requires power sources producing more than 50MW to cut NOx emissions levels down to 200mg/Nm3 by 2016.

Our success in both public tenders at Poerady will enable us to use synergies to complete these major projects, comments Petr Brzezina, Alstoms Country President in the Czech Republic. The project is part of a series of similar contracts that Alstom has recently won throughout Europe and adds to Alstoms broad reference basis for Low NOx projects globally.
