In May 2015, Loesche Energy Systems successfully signed a contract to supply five Loesche coal mills type LM 35.3D with LSKS Classifiers to Rafako SPV for a New Power Unit in TAURON Wytwarzanie SA Jawzorno III Power Plant in Poland.
Rafako is one of the largest manufacturers of utility boilers in Poland; approximately 80% of utility boilers currently in operation in Poland were supplied and installed by Rafako.
Jaworzno III power unit will have a 910MW gross power and will be equipped with supercritical once-through pulverized fuel boiler for bituminous coal. The power station is designed to have high efficiency levels and to meet stringent European emissions standards.
The pulverized fuel throughput required to achieve boiler maximum continuous rating will be achieved with 4 + 1 LM 35.3 D mills, wherein four mills will be in operation and one will be on standby.
Loesche Energy System triumphed amidst stiff competition from well known boiler competitors. The main technical reason for the selection of Loesche Mill is that it delivers lower mill different pressure and consequently, lower auxiliary power consumption than competitors mill. This strategic design improvement in Loesche Mill has been made over the last few years.
The mills will be delivered to Jawzorno III site in 2017
