INERCO’s continuous emissions monitoring technology has become a point of reference for electricity generation companies.
INERCO has recently signed contracts with AES Gener and Colbún, two of Chile’s main energy companies, to install its continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS). Specifically, the agreement includes the provision of a total of five CEMS installations for electricity generation facilities, three running on coal and two on combined cycles.
With these new contracts in Chile, INERCO remains the clear leader in the implementation of this cutting-edge technology for compliance with the Chilean Supreme Decree 13, establishing emissions standards for thermal electric stations, and the country’s CEMS Validation Protocol, through the use of technology individually adapted to each case and an exclusive software application that responds to the requirements of these regulations.
These CEMS systems are exclusive to each electric station involved, with INERCO taking overall responsibility for the entire process, from concept engineering, seeking to establish the best possible technological and economic solution, to system start-up, the training of plant personnel and contractors and the supervision of the certification process to ensure compliance with measurement protocols.
Since 2012, INERCO has installed more than ten of its proprietary emissions monitoring systems in Chile. This has been the result of the Group’s commitment to R&D&I, which has enabled INERCO’s energy and environmental technology for optimising combustion, NOx control and environmental monitoring to assume a worldwide presence, with excellent results.
