• ABB drives enhance vitality effectivity at Beijing Enterprises Surroundings Group Restricted’s (BEEGL’s) stable waste remedy plant in Zhangjiagang • The plant advantages from decrease energy consumption whereas growing the town’s waste disposal capability to 2,250 tons per day • 23 new high-efficiency variable velocity drives (VSDs) will cut back the plant’s annual coal consumption by 120,000 tons, eliminating greater than 300,000 tons of CO2 emissions
ABB provided excessive effectivity VSDs for Beijing Enterprises Surroundings Group Restricted (BEEGL) stable waste remedy plant in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu province, China. The challenge is projected to cut back the power’s annual coal use by greater than 120,000 tons and CO2 emissions by greater than 300,000 tons.
A lot of the equipment within the 370 gigawatt-hour (GWh) facility – together with induced draft followers, blowers, and circulating water pumps – is powered by electrical motors. Pairing these motors with variable velocity drives (VSDs) drastically improves their vitality effectivity. For the reason that plant generates electrical energy by burning waste, it additionally reduces its CO2 emissions.
The ability makes use of 10 units of ACS580MV medium voltage VSDs and 13 units of ACS580 low voltage VSDs to regulate the velocity of motors all through the plant, chopping vitality consumption by roughly 30 p.c. Along with vital vitality financial savings and lowered carbon emissions, BEEGL additionally expects larger reliability, safer operation, and elevated uptime of its energy technology gear.
The plant begins operations in late November 2022, with enhancements anticipated to extend the town’s waste disposal capability from 900 tons to 2,250 tons per day. This contributes to the sustainability of Zhangjiagang, because the plant’s emissions will be 40 p.c decrease than if the waste had been despatched to a landfill. The challenge is working on a BOT (Constructing-Operation-Switch) foundation for a licensed interval of 30 years to 2038 for Part I and 30 years to 2044 for Part II.
“The development of the plant is a crucial step for our firm to contribute to China’s carbon peaking and carbon neutrality targets,” mentioned Liu Yanfeng, Electrical Engineer from BEEGL’s Technical Division. “ABB drives meet the wants of controlling processing gear in numerous situations through the energy technology course of, thus giving the gear an extended life.
“This challenge with BEEGL is an effective instance of turning waste into vitality, mentioned Li Shiping, Gross sales Supervisor, System Drives at ABB Movement China. “Drives are essential for bettering vitality effectivity throughout stable waste remedy and the excessive reliability of our drives make them a good selection for vitality manufacturing. The drives not solely cut back downtime, but in addition present vitality saving alternatives, making the ability technology course of even greener.”
