LOGISTIC PERFORMANCE AT THE SMALLEST FOOTPRINT

Innovative coal storage

Conventional open stockpile storage requires valuable space, involving environmental drawbacks and loss of calorific value. Enclosed silo storage solves these problems at the smallest possible footprint. The Eurosilo system offers safe storage  up to 100,000 m³ per unit. The material is fed from the top into a chute through which it reaches an auger frame on the coal surface. Screw conveyors distribute the material evenly while the auger frame rotates. The stored material is discharged at the bottom, while the screw conveyors rotate in reverse to feed coal into the formed core flow.

 

Case study Trianel power plant Lünen

The Trianel coal fired power plant in Lünen is with 750MW output, the most efficient and cleanest coal fired power plant in Europe. The coal is unloaded by cranes at the plant and stored dust-free into the two Eurosilos that offer a total capacity of 200,000 tons, enough to operate the plant for about 30 days at full load. Dust emissions are virtually eliminated by using fully enclosed conveyor systems. Read more about the award winning environmental performance.

Fuel Management maximizes revenue

Your thermal power plant will achieve the highest efficiency rate by burning the optimal coal blend. To prepare the right blends, the ESI Fuel Management System offers great help. The software visualizes the different grades of coal in respective silos and enables the operator to plan coal blending in the optimal way. Boiler specifications, coal characteristics and measured storage levels provide input for the Fuel Management System. Reclaiming different coal grades from respective silos at a controlled rate, gives you the optimal coal blend. Significant operational cost savings reduce the Payback Period, due to minimal maintenance and fully automated handling.

Lifecycle assessment with EMA

To ensure long-term return on investment, it is vital to achieve cost-effective compliance with environmental regulations and self-imposed policies. Environmental Management Accounting (EMA) integrates environmental, operational and maintenance data into financial analysis. The integrated lifecycle assessment, as recognized by the European Community, offers a complete evaluation.

Safest storage at a minimal footprint

  • Minimal footprint for large scale storage
  • Safest storage method in the market
  • No pollution or loss of calorific value
  • Maximum logistic control & flexibility
  • Minimal operating and maintenance costs
  • High availability due to minimal downtime
