LP Amina & Beijing Energy Sign a Ground Breaking Agreement
Beijing Energy Investment Holding Co., Ltd. (BEIH) Caoqiao Thermal Power Plant Phase II project is intended to help significantly resolve the problem of rising district heating demand in Beijing. The plant is located inside the Beijing South Fourth Ring road within the Beijing urban district – a highly sensitive area with increased environmental protection requirements. As a result, the project must balance the need for affordable power to support Beijing’s economic development with emissions reduction requirements. In order to achieve both objectives, BEIH is collaborating with LP Amina to implement NOx selective catalytic reduction technology (SCR) in the 2×350 MW combined cycle power plant. Once the transformation is completed, the Caoqiao Thermal Power Plant Phase II project will become the lowest NOx producing power plant in the world, and will represent a landmark project in the global energy field.
BEIH is a large state-owned investment enterprise and is wholly owned by the Municipal Government of Beijing. Its operating capacity of electricity totals 10,000 MWs and heating loads of its operating thermal power plants account for 39% of total heated floor space in Beijing. BEIH is proactive in developing renewable energy. Its renewable energy controlled capacity is 2,280MW, accounting for 26% of the BEIH controlled capacity. BEIH has made great achievements in wind power, hydropower, biomass and other clean energy sectors. Please click the link below for more information about BEIH: http://www.powerbeijing.com/.
