Construction of thermal and nuclear power plants
Belarms can offer full finance and construction of thermal and nuclear
power stations for generating capacities of 300MW to over 1000MW.
Advanced filtration systems can be used where smoke stack discharge
becomes an issue. However rather than look to expensive and questionably
effective clean coal and carbon sequestration systems, Belarms advocates
forestry projects to offset carbon dioxide emissions.
Choice of technology is largely up to the energy authority requesting
construction. Boiler and reactor systems designed in China, Japan and
Korea should be well suited, though more expensive US, Canadian and
European systems may be installed in the alternative.
Construction to a Privatization Policy
Where a new power station or distribution system needs to be financed
and constructed but privatization is required by government policy,
Belarms can enter into an arrangement whereby disposal is subsequently
arranged or alternatively Belarms will take over responsibility for
Distribution Control Panel in a 1000 MW Power Plant
As part of a power generation construction project Belarms is able
to offer full fit-out for power stations including constructing and
connecting transmission lines. This can also be undertaken to
replace aging infrastructure. Old generating machinery can be
removed for scrap and the site renovated with modern systems.
Construction of a cooling tower
Belarms through its joint venture partners
can provide comprehensive power plant
construction engineering experience
to complete the most extensive tasks.
Construction of nuclear power plant
Drawing on an engineering pool with
nuclear power plant construction
experience virtually any reactor
project can be completed within
Nuclear Power Technology
Whilst Belarms adopts a flexible and selective approach to the
choice of nuclear reactors, in China where there is an extensive
nuclear power construction program, the Qinshan Phase III nuclear
power plant includes two 728 MWe CANDU 6 PHWR reactors.
The two CANDU units are ranked among the top performing
nuclear power stations in China. Qinshan’s CANDU Unit 2 ranks
as the best performing reactor in China with a lifetime energy
availability factor to date of 88.8% according to the International
Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) PRIS database.
Coal-fired Power Stations
Similar to nuclear power plant construction, Belarms can build
a 1,000MW thermal power station within three years. Probably
Japanese technology would be chosen for the steam and power
generation. However there are no absolute solutions to the
carbon emission issue. Belarms advocates an extensive stack
filtration system, complemented by a forestry program.
Solar Power for the Electricity Grid
Belarms is a prime advocate of solar power and backs its beliefs
with a research and manufacturing program. Full finance and
construction can be offered to government agencies and also to
Best overall results for infrastructure can be obtained where
there is a sizeable daytime peak load requirement that solar power
can satisfy, particularly as these are usually in summer.
Modernization and Expansion Projects
Subject to a detailed assessment being carried out, Belarms is
able to provide finance and construction for power plants that are
in need of refurbishment, modernization or expansion. Due to our
strict and orderly construction program, most building operations
should be completed within a three year time frame. Such
construction work can be carried out as a distinct operation.
Alternatively, the project may be financed and constructed along
with geographically separate power plant construction operations.
Steam equipment in thermal plant
Considerable advances in boiler
technology in China and Japan means
that the megawatt capacity of thermal
has been substantially increased.
Parabolic Solar Dish
Solar alternatives to large scale power
generation may be suitable for power
generation in small towns and to
provide daytime peak load supplement.
