Yokogawa to install desulfurisation system at Ugljevik coal plant

Published by
World Coal,


Yokogawa Electric Corp. will deliver a control system for a fluegas desulfurisation system that is to be installed at the Ugljevik coal-fired power plant in northeastern Bosnia and Herzegovina.

This fluegas desulfurisation system, which will be the first of its type to be installed in the West Balkans, is scheduled to start operation in October 2019.

The Ugljevik power plant has a capacity of 300 MW, sufficient to supply a quarter of the total electrical generation capacity for the Republic of Srpska, which is one of the constituent entities of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Since it burns lignite with high sulfur content, the emissions from its flue stack contain high levels of sulfur dioxide. Installation of the flu gas desulfurisation system is expected to improve the environment and help satisfy environmental standards, which is required for joining the EU.

The main product delivered by Yokogawa will be a CENTUM® VP integrated production control system for the monitoring and control of the fluegas desulfurisation system. The project will be managed by Yokogawa GesmbH, the company’s subsidiary in Austria and Central East Europe, and Ogranak Yokogawa Europe Branches Beograd, the Serbia office of Yokogawa Europe Branches B.V. Delivery of the CENTUM VP system will take place by August 2018.

The order for this system came from Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Ltd, a member of the consortium that will deliver the fluegas desulfurisation system, and it was placed with Shinkawa Electric Co. Ltd, which is a distributor for the Yokogawa subsidiary Yokogawa Solution Service Corp.
