HOUSTON, Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- POWER magazine today officially announced winners of its 2016 Top Plants in the coal-fired generation category. This year's winners are sited in very different locations, climates, and political and economic environments around the world. They deploy diverse state-of-the-art technologies to address both unique and global challenges.
Mátra Power Plant, Visonta, Hungary
When you think about innovation at power plants, you may not immediately think of Hungary, but the country's largest coal-fired plant has introduced several unique approaches and was among the first to employ a water-wise ash-handling system. Its commitment to continual improvement is also seen in the addition of biomass fuel and a solar facility.
National Capital Power Station Dadri, Gautam Budh Nagar, Uttar Pradesh, India
The noteworthy aspects of this plant, one of the largest in coal-dependent India, include consistent high-performance ratings, as well as newer improvements such as an innovative solar thermal system that supplies some of the site's energy needs.
Tanjung Bin Energy Power Plant, Johor, Malaysia
Although Malaysia is bucking the trend of fuel transitions as it adds coal-fired capacity, it is deploying the most efficient technology plus pollution controls. This ultrasupercritical project came with an extra-challenging site but still met schedule and budget.
