Alstom’s chilled ammonia process picked for CCS demo in Romania

Romania’s Institute for Studies and Power Engineering (ISPE) has selected Alstom’s Chilled Ammonia Process (CAP) as the basis for the development of a carbon capture and storage (CCS) demo plant at the Turceni power plant.
 
The carbon capture plant will be integrated into Unit 6 at the Turceni power plant which will at the same time be retrofitted to a capacity of 330 MW. The ‘Romanian CCS Demo Project’ represents the very first step towards realizing the CCS action plan of the Romanian government and will be presented as a candidate project for European Union NER300 (New Entrant Reserve) funding for CCS projects.
 
Philippe Joubert, President of Alstom Power, declared: “We are delighted to partner with ISPE and Romania for this important project, and will bring a wealth of experience and capabilities in this alliance. The selection of Alstom technology demonstrates our leadership in this field, critical for the future of fossil-based power generation.”
