FGD systems for Kozienice Power Plant (Poland)


MHPS has consolidated the environmental technologies for thermal power plants that were developed and accumulated by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) and Hitachi, Ltd., providing the company with the capability to offer an integrated Air Quality Control System (AQCS) comprising FGD, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) for denitrification, and Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) for dust collection systems. This centralization has established a foundation for MHPS as the world's only manufacturer able to independently offer proposals and provide these systems. Its world-leading technologies greatly reduce air pollutants such as a sulfur oxide (SOx), nitrogen oxide (NOx), and particulate matter, helping to significantly improve the global environment.

MHPS has delivered more than 300 FGD systems to the global market. We have expanded the business by providing technologies and guidance in countries and regions where demand for advanced AQCS has risen alongside economic development, and applying these technologies in joint development projects with Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. for desulfurization equipment for ships. MHPS also boasts a leading global market share for SCR systems, and is an industry leader.

Going forward, encouraged by the strong support it has received from customers that has resulted in such a large market share, MHPS will further focusing its efforts on the widespread adoption of AQCS while accurately assess customer needs, as well as provide the energy security that is essential to economic development, promote the decarbonization of energy, and contribute to the preservation of the global environment.
