“DTEK Prydniprovska TPP” launched the power unit No.10 after switching to Ukrainian gas-coal

After the installation of the new electrical filter and switching from imported anthracite to the Ukrainian gas-coal, “DTEK Prydniprovska TPP” commissioned a power unit No.10.

A power unit of Prydniprovska TPP had to be switched to “G” rank coal by the end of 2018.

This is the 4th power unit of Prydniprovska TPP, which started to work on Ukrainian fuel. DTEK’s press service announced it.

“We have fully completed the switching from anthracite to gas-coal of four units of the Prydniprovska TPP with a total capacity of 600 MW. Now, the station will fully operate on domestic coal and will not depend on the supply of anthracite”, said Serhiy Kurylenko, the Director of electricity generation at “DTEK Energo”.

The switching of 4 power units and the installation of an electrical filter cost 440 million UAH. The cost of electrical filter was140 million UAH, which will reduce dust emissions to European standards – 50 mg/cubic meter.

Thanks to the switching of units at the Prydniprovska TPP, the production of electricity from imported coal in 2018 compared to the previous year decreased by 23%, whereas from Ukrainian coal it grew by 2%. The work on switching unit No.10 lasted 9 months.

Перевод энергоблоков Приднепровской ТЭС начался полтора года назад. В 2017 году начали работать блоки №7 и 8, в ноябре 2018 года – блок №9, на нем был установлен новый электрофильтр.

The switching of power units at the Prydniprovska TPP began a year and a half ago. In 2017, units No.7 and 8 began to work, in November 2018 – unit No.9, a new electrical filter was installed on it.  

At the end of the heating season, the switching of the first unit of the Kryvyi Rih TPP will begin.
