AUMUND increases its market share in the Chinese power industry

Published by
World Coal,

AUMUND Group has secured an increased market share in the Chinese power industry over the past two years. The combined efforts of the AUMUND subsidiary in Beijing and the AUMUND power technology team in Germany has resulted in orders for several power plants that belong to the Shenhua Power Group, as well as from Shanneng and Guodian.

Tightening of environmental protection regulations has led to an increased volume of enquiries for fluegas purification systems from power plant operators in China, who are now opting for silos rather than stockpiles for their gypsum storage. AUMUND has noted increased interest in fluegas desulphurisation and silo discharge with AUMUND rotating rotary discharge machines type BEW-K. The rotating rotary discharge machine was specially developed for large extraction openings and silos of 6 – 14 m diameter. A typical application is the extraction of FDG gypsum in coal-fired power plants. These machines work on the first-in, first-out principle, are designed for mass flow and can feed and extract the material at the same time.

AUMUND received orders from the Shenhua Group for the supply of two rotating rotary discharge machines to each of four power plants, in Luzhai, Jiujiang, Ningdong and Ezhou. The eight machines were installed, over a period of about two years, for the discharge of FDG gypsum from the respective silos into trucks.

Following this success, AUMUND received another order, from the Shanneng Group for its power plant in Zhaoshipan. In this case, a rotating rotary discharge machine with a diameter of 10 m and a capacity of 150 tph was ordered. China Shenhua Energy Co. Ltd was incorporated in 2004 in Beijing and is a subsidiary of Shenhua Group Corp. Ltd. The company has extensive coal reserves in the People’s Republic and is a leading energy provider. Its main business includes production and sales of coal-fired power and coal-related products, as well as transportation of these products using its own integrated network of railway and shipping routes.
