If you click on this link: http://720yun.com/t/71ej5phkvn0?from=singlemessage&isappinstalled=0&pano_id=7617273 you will be redirected to an aerial footage taken from a drone on 13 November 2017 at the Guangdong Lufeng Jiahuwan Power Plant.
Only roughly half of the steel structures of the multi-story main plant and boiler buildings (to the right of the tall square concrete tower) plus some surrounding small structures that are most visible in grey are coated with ZINGA. The total quantity used up till now only about 250 tons of ZINGA so far. The other half are hot-dipped. The buildings or structures surrounded with green tarp are mostly concrete with very little steelworks, which are also hot-dipped.
Miscellaneous smaller structures and steelworks supporting all kinds of equipment are still being fabricated and have yet to be installed.
This may consume another 30-40 tons of ZINGA over the next 9-10 months.
The project is already falling behind schedule, for over 1 year, due to multiple delays in the steel fabrication itself, but also to defective surface preparation and coating application by the steel fabricators.
Now, 18 months after the project began, ZINGA has by comparison proven to outperform HDG (Hot-Dip Galv.) and the project leaders have realised they should have kept more steelwork for ZINGA and less for HDG. It is our goal to recapture more ZINGA business for Phase 2 which will not commence until December 2018.
Upon completion in 4 phases and fully operational in 2024, the Guangdong Lufeng Jiahuwan Power Plant (8 x 1000 MW) will be the world’s largest and cleanest coal-fired power plant, serving Guangdong, the richest Chinese province which has a total population (highest nation-wide) of over 104 million people and contributes to more than 27% of China’s total GDP.
The project is very highly regarded and blessed by the Central Government of China and the Guangdong provincial government, as it will be China’s first and largest clean new energy power plant, with zero emission of pollutants – achieved by adopting the most advanced and high efficiency German technologies in reduction of carbon emissions, desulphuration, denitration, water & energy conservation in generating coal-fired power. Sea water will be desalinated and used for cooling the boilers and generators in the conversion of heat to electricity. Waste water from the power production areas and the workers’ living quarters will be treated and recycled for landscape irrigation and non-potable use.
Construction and operation of the Lufeng Jiahuwan Power Plant will conform to the highest standards and levels of occupational health & safety, environmental protection, ecological balance optimisation and operating cost effectiveness. Total capital invested by Guangdong Baolihua New Energy Stock Co., Ltd., which is listed in the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, is in excess of RMB 36 billion (or EUR 5.37 billion). The 8 x 1000 MW electricity produced here will be fed directly into the Guangdong Power Grid, one of the 5 state-owned national power grids in China, for consumption in the surrounding regions of southern China.
The massive site occupies a land area measuring 2.2 km and 1.6 km right at the seaside facing the South China Sea. Small sections of the plant will be built on reclaimed land and a privately owned pier (equipped with an extensive, steel structured, fully automated coal conveyor system) accommodating up to 100,000 tons of vessels carrying high-grade and combustion-efficient coal imported from Australia and Indonesia will be built along the shore line parallel to the power plant. Geographically, this locale, with an atmospheric temperature range of 3~40°C, receives very heavy rainfalls and multiple typhoons annually. It is a frequent landing pad of many typhoons originating in the Philippines.
When fully operational by late 2024, the Guangdong Lufeng Jiahuwan Power Plant will employ more than 1,200 full-time workers and staff, providing them with well and truly self-containing facilities for working, living (with a huge hotel-like fully serviced dormitory accommodating up to 800 employees), relaxation and entertainment. This, and another gigantic resort-looking office complex with 2 enormous canteens serving 1,200 people daily (working in 3 shifts) have already been built and are in ready-to-move-in conditions.
Total quantities of steelworks used are about 45,000 tons per phase of construction and 220,000 tons in total. The quantity of Zinga needed for anti-corrosion protection of major steelworks is approximately 300 tons per phase, based on 150-180 µm DFT applied as a unique stand-alone system.
