After a 72-hour warranty test, the equipment of TPP “Ajax — Dnipro” on biomass with a capacity of 16 MW was put into operation. The project was implemented in two years.
TPP is located near the plant for the production of sunflower oil “Potoky” in Dnipro and has two steam boilers (35 t / h each) with steam parameters P = 40 kg / cm2 and t = 440 ° C as well as a steam condensing turbine generator SST-300 Siemens with an electric capacity of 16 MW.
The power plant uses sunflower husks as well as pellets from sunflower husks as the main fuel.
However, steam boilers can run on different types of biomass. In addition to sunflower husks, wood chips, and wastes from sunflower cultivation, transportation and processing can be used.
The efficiency of boilers reaches 90%, and the range of load control: 30-110%.
Ecological indicators of boiler operation: NOx –100 ррm; CO – 0 ррm.
Cleaning from ash deposits is carried out automatically and does not require the shutdown of the equipment. And cleaning of flue gases from dust is carried out to the level of 20 mg / m3.
