Written by dragos on . Posted in Events

ISPE – Institute for Studies and Power Engineering together with Politehnica University of Bucharest (UPB) organized the final National Conference CleanCOALtech 2014 with the topic “Clean coal combustion technologies”. The event took place on December 5, 2014 at University House in Craiova, Dolj County, Oltenia South West region.

ISPE organized this event as partner of the CleanCOALtech project “Educational and Training System for Clean Coal Technologies” along with Politehnica University of Bucharest (UPB) and the other Romanian members of the international consortium: ARoTT – Romanian Association for Technology Transfer and Innovation. (Please see attached the CleanCOALtech_Project-in-brief, the CleanCOALtech_Conference-Final-Agenda_05.12.2014 and the CleanCOALtech_Conference_Press-Release_Dec2014 in extenso).

CleanCOALtech National Conference aimed at disseminating the main objectives and the final results of the educational & training project and the promotion of the European funds made available through the LIFELONG LEARNING PROGRAM; Leonardo da Vinci / Transfer of Innovation – TOI / 2012.

Another objective of the conference, considering the new geopolitical background in the region, was drawing attention both to the national exploitation potential and efficient & clean use of coal domestic resources, and to the scientific interest in solutions and technologies already implemented in the energy sector in Romania.

Continuous Vocational Education Training (CVET) Programme

Written by dragos on . Posted in Events

ISPE together with Politehnica University of Bucharest (UPB) organized, at the end of November 2014,  CleanCOALtech training sessions on “Clean Coal Combustion Technologies.” The training sessions were held in Deva, Hunedoara County and Novaci, Gorj County and were addressed to the Romanian coal energy sector.

By organising 4 x CVET sessions within CleanCOALtech European project “Education and training systems for clean coal technologies”, each running 2 days for a group of 25 trainees, we plan to update and improve the knowledge of specialists (operation and maintenance/repair departments) and non-specialists (experts from support departments – marketing, commercial, economic etc.) working in power plants, in order to use coal local resources efficiently and clean.

UPB and ISPE lecturers (researchers/teachers) prepared a relevant curriculum in order to cover all clean coal technologies:

  • Primary energy sources
  • Conventional steam power plants (CSPP)
  • CSPP Emissions control technologies
  • Coal combustion in CSPP
  • Coal and biomass co-firing
  • Integrated coal gasification combined cycle power plants (IGCC)

The CVET sessions have brought together a number of 100 trainees (75 specialists and 25 non- specialists) from Oltenia Energy Complex, Hunedoara Energy Complex and Govora CHPP.

Smart Power Generation in Romania – first step towards a modern power system

Written by dragos on . Posted in Events

Wednesday, 30th October, took place at the “Martin Bercovici” Amphitheater the event “Smart power Generation in Romania”, organized by ISPE in collaboration with the Finnish company Wärtsilä,

Among the main topics debated we should mention:

  • Profitable investments in an uncertain climate;
  • Combustion engine power plants up to 600 MW;
  • Smart CHP generation – key technical considerations;
  • Flexible and Highly Efficient Power Generation and Grid services;
  • Financing Instruments for Energy Efficiency Projects

The presentations were delivered both by Wärtsilä representatives: Alf Doktar, Area Director; Markus Ehrstrom, Business Development Department, Stefan Nygård, Wärtsilä Development and Financial services, Jan Andersson, Wärtsilä CHP Development and also by ISPE representatives – Ovidiu Apostol, Managing Director, Florin St?nescu, Key Account Management Unit and Irina Grigorovici, Economist, Studies and Project Financing Unit.

The event gathered participants from Candole Partners, Jaspers, ICPE ACTEL, ROMGAZ, Energomontaj, Electrocentrale Bucure?ti –Titan Unit, Electrocentrale Turceni Unit, Termoelectrica – SE Paro?eni.

In conclusion, as total electricity demand and daily load variations increase, conventional power generation alone is not flexible enough. Adding efficient and flexible Smart Power Generation to take care of the challenges is a natural step towards a modern power system.
