Large Flue Gas Desulphurization System Delivered to China

 Tokyo, March 22, 2006 – Kawasaki Plant Systems, Ltd. (K Plant) announced today that it has delivered two large flue gas desulphurization systems to Hebei Guohua Dingzhou Power Plant in Dingzhou, Hebei Province, China.

 The two units are one of the largest flue gas desulphurization systems to be introduced in China. They will be installed with two 600,000 kW coal-fired power generation systems. Built to cope with rising power demand in Hebei Province, the plant is considering a further expansion plan to a total power generation capacity of 2.4 million kW.

 For this project, K Plant executed the basic and process engineering, supplied the main equipment, installed an absorber, supervised commissioning and trained operators. Using Kawasaki’s proprietary wet limestone-gypsum process with a spray tower absorber, which is the world’s most popular flue gas desulphurization process, the system provides easy maintenance and stable operations.

 Kawasaki has delivered six units of the flue gas system to China, starting with the 1995 delivery of a simplified version to the Nanning Chemical Industrial Group in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. It is currently providing technical assistance on eight units under construction.
