International technology Group ANDRITZ has received another order from Tata Projects Limited (tataprojects.com), India, to supply the process engineering for a complete flue gas desulphurization (FGD) plant, comprising basic engineering and the detailed engineering for the absorber internals and equipment as well as other core components for the Jojobera power plant (output: 4 x 120 MW), near Jamshedpur, East Singhbum District, Jharkhand State, India.
Start-up is scheduled for the first half of 2023.
For desulphurization purposes, the exhaust gas is washed in counter-current flow with a limestone suspension, reducing the content of SO2 and other acidic components to concentrations in line with the current environmental requirements. With further oxidation, process gypsum can be produced that is either landfilled or sold to the construction industry.
ANDRITZ has comprehensive experience with FGD technologies and many successful references around the world. This project is another important step towards establishing ANDRITZ’s flue gas treatment technology on the Indian market.
