Germany’s Lünen plant receives clean coal award

The operator of the Lünen coal-fired power plant in Germany, Trianel Kohlekraftwerk Lünen GmbH & Co KG, has been awarded the Peabody Energy Advanced Energy for Life Clean Coal Award, which recognises global leadership in deploying high-efficiency clean coal technologies that deliver ultra-low emissions.

The award recognizes the best 2014 environmental performance among European coal-fueled power plants based on self-nominated emissions data for sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and heat rate.

Located in Lünen, Trianel’s 750 MW ultra-supercritical power plant has an efficiency level of 44% (heat rate = 8191 kJ/kWh (HHVnet), which makes it amongst the most efficient coal-fired power plant in the world.

It also has a suite of emissions controls to reduce SO2, NOx and particulates to extremely low levels:

  • SO2 emission rate = 0.24 g/kWh
  • NOx emissions rate = 0.24 g/kWh

The Peabody Advanced Energy for Life Awards ceremony took place alongside Power Engineering International’s inaugural EMEA Projects of the Year Awards, during POWER-GEN Europe in Amsterdam this week.
