Pakistan getting benefits of China’s energy saving options
ISLAMABAD – Pakistan is fast getting benefits of China’s energy saving options as Chinese energy saving solution provider is accelerating upgrade industries in Pakistan, China Economic Net (CEN) reported on Thursday.
Recently, the coal-fired units in the project of 30MW coal-fired power station plus 10MW waste heat captive power station of D G Khan contracted by Sinoma Energy Conservation Ltd passed the 72-hour performance assessment smoothly and obtain the acceptance certificate.
“Our projects are all completed this year, providing direct energy guarantee for owners to save electricity output and reduce production costs”, said Ji Lei, Head of Sinoma Energy Conservation Pakistan, told the CEN.
In June 2019, D G Khan, Pakistan’s leading cement producer, signed a deal with Sinoma Energy Conservation for upgrades at the integrated Hub cement plant. The agreement includes a 10MW waste heat recovery (WHR) unit and a 30MW coal power plant.
According to Ji, the 30MW coal power plant employs a high temperature and ultra-high-pressure (uHPHT) primary reheat thermal system at home and abroad for the first time, which will greatly improve the overall thermal efficiency of the power plant, reduce coal consumption and the overall production cost.
Compared with the conventional high-temperature and high-pressure system, the uHPHT system is expected to reduce the standard coal consumption by about 10400 tons, and the estimate carbon dioxide emission will drop by 23700 tons. In addition, total cement output will be increased by 18100 tons after the completion of the project.
“During 72-hour performance assessment, our performance indicators were better than the contractual guaranteed values, and our emissions indicators were lower than Pakistan’s local emission standards.
