Fortum is supplying nitrogen oxides reduction technology to Eesti Energia, Estonia’s biggest energy company.
The delivery comprises nitrogen oxides reduction installations for four units at the Narva Power Plants and for a total of eight power plant boilers.
With the technology, the aim is that the power plant boilers will meet the European Union’s new, strict emissions norms that become effective on 1 January 2016.
Located near the city of Narva, in eastern Estonia, the Narva Power Plants consist of two of the world’s biggest oil shale-fired power plants. Narva Power Plants produce over 90 per cent of Estonia’s total electricity production.
Development and deliveries of burner technologies which reduce emissions have been a cornerstone of Fortum’s power plant expertise for a long time.
Over the course of more than 20 years, Fortum has delivered hundreds of low-NOx burners to power plants around the world.
— We chose Fortum’s nitrogen oxides-reduction solution on the basis of a Europe-wide bidding round, says Raine Pajo, Member of the Eesti Energia Management Board.
— With this innovative solution, we can continue energy production at the existing power plants also after the EU’s new emissions norms take effect.
