Coal Fired Power Plant
Plant to sustain 30% national installed capacity in Dominican Republic
Controlled emission levels will low the impact on the environment
This EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) project involves the execution of an industrial complex of strategic importance for the country's development. It includes a coal-fired thermal plant, an offshore terminal, and other associated facilities. The thermoelectric plant will be composed of two large electricity generating units of 376 MW gross each, for a total of 752 MW gross.
Tecnimont, as strategic technology leader, will execute Engineering services and Procurement for the power block, air quality treatment system and control system, along with Commissioning and plant Start-up services.
This Project is based on state-of-the-art technology to achieve high performance close to “supercritical” coal fired power plants and represents a new installed capacity equal to 30% of the national total power demand, with low emission levels for a sustainable environmental/social impact, that will enable the state-owned national utility CDEEE to replace old fuel oil plants that have larger polluting effects on the environment.
Furthermore, Tecnimont planned extensive initiatives for soil improvement using a combination of innovative techniques to cope with the unfavorable and difficult soil condition of the site.
