3 Capture

This section provides an overview of the CO2 capture component of the Getica CCS Demo Project. For a comprehensive description of the CCP and its integration with the Turceni PP, please see the CO2 capture feasibility study report, published by the Global CCS Institute (refer Table 2-1).

The CO2 capture plant will be retrofitted to the 330 MW Unit No. 6 of the existing six units in Turceni. Unit No. 6 is fuelled by local lignite equipped with wet flue gas desulphurisation (WFGD) and a dense slurry installation for ash and slag discharge. The power unit is currently being refurbished, with start-up expected prior to commissioning of the CCS project.

The CCP will treat a flue gas stream from Unit No. 6 equivalent to 250 MWe of net electrical output (sent out by the power plant, after the auxiliary load). The minimum targeted CO2 capture rate is 85% from the flue gas stream. A representation of the CCP is presented in Figure 3-1.
