Zolo presented results from its first coal-fired installation in China at the Clean Coal Technology Conference in Taiyuan, China. The ZoloBOSS was installed at the 600MW Rizhao Power Plant owned by Huaneng Power Group and is the first ZoloBOSS system to be installed in China. With rising international coal prices and increased restrictions on emission many coal-fired plants are looking at ways to improve performance. The Rizhao plant is a super-critical boiler that began operation just a few years ago. The ZoloBOSS data was integrated into the Siemens P3000 combustion optimization system. Improvements in efficiency of 0.49% from better balanced combustion were validated along with a reduction in NOx of 14%.
