Lignite and hard coal storage. In winter periods of low temperatures we combust up to a thousand tons of coal per day. Apart from coal we also combust biomass.
The coal that needs to be thawed during winter months goes right into this tunnel.
The coal goes from the fuel storage to the fuel tank and then falls into the mill where it is crushed into powder before combustion in the boiler.
The heat generated in the boiler when combusting the coal heats water and changes it into steam. Two of the five steam boilers are used as a backup. Over the last few years two boilers have undergone a large-scale modernization.
The steam flows through the turbines connected to the generators that convert it into electricity. The steam from the turbines is used for technological purposes and heating.
Sulfur dioxide is removed from flu-gas here thereby improving the air quality. We use a semi-dry method in which the desulfurization product is white powder.
Fly Ash Silo
The combustion process produces fly ash that is stored and used as a raw material in building industry. Also the desulfurization product is stored in the silos and together with slag and fly ash is used for landfill reclamation.
Heating Plant Dominant Features
Smokestacks are used for delivering cleaned combustion gases and water vapor to the air. The taller smokestacks the larger diffusion area and the lower concentration of flu gases in the air. Our smokestack is 170 meters tall and is the tallest in the Zlín Region.
The place where the operators control the operations of the boilers, turbines and other technological equipment of the Heating Plant from.
Steam and Hot Water Distribution Pipeline
The total length of our hot water and steam distribution networks is about 53 kilometers. We supply heat to Otrokovice, Napajedla and Zlín-Malenovice.
The residual heat is then cooled down in two cooling towers.
