Iraq (+964) Korea South (+82) The package of 7.5m x 7m dampers will significantly reduce emissions at the Bełchatów Power Station, Poland, the largest thermal power station in Europe, and second largest fossil-fuel power station in the world. The project represents a major step in upgrading existing generating assets in Poland to ensure that they meet EU environmental legislation post 2008, notably requirements of the EU Large Combustion Plant and IPPC directives. Venezuela (+58) Operated by PGE Elektrownia Belchatow (PGE), it is the biggest lignite-fired power plant in Europe. A programme to modernise the turbines was carried out between 1997 and 2004, which increased the capacity by 10MW and reduced heat energy consumption by 210KJ/kWh. In the second phase, a bigger plant will be built to capture carbon emissions from the new 858MW unit. If completed, it would have captured 1.8 million tonnes of CO2 a year.

Environmental classification and rationale Nauru (+674) The boiler firing system will be upgraded to reduce emissions to 200mg/Nm³ for CO and NOx. Emerson was contracted in November 2009 to carry out the modernisation of units 5 and 6. A new distributed control system, eight new pulverised coal burners and a flue gas heat exchanger will also be added to the unit. As a source of low cost supply to the both: the Polish and European markets, EBSA’s ability to bring its operations and management up to best practices standards in terms of competitive profile and risk management will be important.. Es verfügt über zwei 300 Meter hohe Schornsteine, welche zu den höchsten freistehenden Bauwerken in Polen gehören. The unit 13 utilizes a BB-2400 boiler from Rafako, which is capable of operating at 554°C temperature and 25.9MPa pressure and provides a net thermal efficiency of 42%.

The generator was commissioned in September 2011.“Prior to the expansion, the Belchatรณw plant had 12 units of 360MW each.”. These measures are aimed to ensure that the environmental issues will be sufficiently managed to prevent or minimise impacts on staff and local population as well as on the environment. The project was screened A/1, requiring an environmental impact assessment (EIA) and environmental audit in line with the Bank’s Environmental Policy and Public Information Policy. Latvia (+371) This financing will have also a positive demonstration effect in the local and international financial markets. It is located in the Łódz region, central Poland. Cape Verde Islands (+238) The pilot CCP will use Alstom’s Advanced Amine Process with amine solvent supplied by Dow Chemical. Since BOT’s plants are strongly dependent on the prevailing and uncertain long term PPA’s environment, the Project provides another opportunity for the Bank to influence the direction of and subsequent implementation of both appropriate stranded asset legislation and any capacity payment system to transition Poland to a competitive market with modernised generating assets that meet environmental standards.

The units 7 and 8 of the plant are planned to be shut down in January 2012 and June 2012 respectively for modernisation. Brazil (+55)

The new unit has the highest efficiency of 41% and conforms to European standards on green house gas emissions. Sierra Leone (+232) The 4,440MW Bełchatów power plant is located near Bełchatów in the łódź province of Poland. Operational since 1988, the plant is owned and operated by PGE Elektrownia Belchatow (PGE), a subsidiary of state-owned Polska Grupa Energetyczna (PGE).

The proposed project is expected to bring significant environmental benefits as the new plant will be using state-of-the-art technology and replace older polluting generating units in Poland leading to reduced pro rata emissions. A new distributed control system, eight new pulverised coal burners and a flue gas heat exchanger will also be added to the unit. The Bank will evaluate the project's compliance with the applicable environmental and social requirements during the lifetime of the project by reviewing annual environmental reports prepared for the project covering: (i) ongoing performance of project-specific environmental, health and safety activities as reflected in the results of periodic and quantitative sampling and measuring programmes, and. The proposed project consists of construction of a new 833 MW lignite fired unit at an existing 4,440 MW lignite power plant operated by BOT Elektrownia Belchatow SA (“EBSA” or the Company”) accompanied by the associated investments i.e. Belchatow power plant is also the most polluting power plant in Europe. French Polynesia (+689) Armenia (+374) Tel. Bereits vor der Erweiterung der Kapazität galt das Kraftwerk als Europas größter einzelner Kohlendioxidemittent. Das Kraftwerk ist, gemessen nach Maximalleistung, zurzeit das zweitgrößte Kohlekraftwerk der Erde, knapp hinter dem Kraftwerk Taichung auf Taiwan mit 5780 Megawatt. The new unit and the overall modernization of the Belchatow Power Plant is part of the long term modernization of the plant. Spain (+34)
