Ground Breaking Ceremony of the flue gas desulphurization plant construction project for Ugljevik Thermal Power Plant


On May 15th, Ambassador of Japan to Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) Kazuya Ogawa attended a ground breaking ceremony of the flue gas desulphurization plant construction project at Ugljevik Thermal Power Plant, along with the Minister of Industry, Energy and Mining of RS, Mr. Petar Đokić.
Under this project funded by a Japanese ODA loan amounting up to 12.633 billion yen (approx. 200 million KM), the first flue gas desulphurization plant in Bosnia and Herzegovina will be installed in the Ugljevik Thermal Power Plant, which is a critical part of RS’s electrical power supply and whose facilities have aged and use coal with high sulfur content and a low heat generation rate. MHPS (Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd.) is the contractor of the project and the planned construction period is 37 months.  
The flue gas desulphurization plant will reduce drastically sulfur dioxide and coarse particulates that pollute the air and will also contribute to protection of environment in BiH and improving the health of nearby residents.
