The Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC) has awarded technology company Andritz an order to reconstruct a damaged seawater flue gas desulphurization (SWFGD) plant at the Vasilikos power station in Cyprus.
The SWFGD plant was originally damaged in November 2016 following a catastrophic fire that completely destroyed the flue gas treatment equipment.
The scope of work includes design, supply, erection, reconstruction, testing, commissioning, and performance testing of the SWFGD plant supplied.
The main deliveries are a packed absorber tower made of concrete, a gas-gas heater (GGH) on top of the absorber, upgrade of the existing aeration system, as well as connection to all other existing systems.
Upgrade of the existing electrostatic precipitator (ESP) will also enable the plant to comply with the new and stricter emission regulations.
Start-up of the new system is scheduled for May 2019.
