Due to critical and falsely allegations made by several individuals and NGOs regarding the project for the construction of second unit at coal-fired thermal power plant Pljevlja, Montenegrin power utility EPCG once again emphasized that the existing state of the electricity sector can undoubtedly be developed through the economically and environmentally justified use of coal and electricity production in the Pljevlja area.
The statement from EPCG recalled that Skoda Praha, or any other partner in the project, will be obliged to satisfy the strictest limit values for emissions of flue gases proscribed by the national and European legislation in the offered technical solution. With the announced environmental modernization of unit 1 at the plant, which will include the installation of desulfurization and denitrification systems and the improvement of the existing electrofilters and waste water treatment, it will also fulfill all the abovementioned requirements. A proposal for the technical solution of the unit also takes into account the more stringent emission limit values provided for by the latest standards of the LCP BREF document in relation to the existing standards envisaged by the national legislation, namely the Industrial Emissions Directive 2010/75/EC.
