Quick facts: Moneypoint is on Ireland's west coast and supplies about a quarter of the country's electricity. In Aug 2004, Lurgi Lentjes got a 150mn order for three FGD scrubbers and three SCR systems for the plant. The new equipment is now in service and brings the station into compliance with the EU Large Combustion Plant Directive. The dry, circulating fluidized-bed scrubbers are the world's largest and were selected for their performance and small footprint. Combustion byproducts are conveyed to a landfill via a 1,366m enclosed conveyor installed by FL Smidth/Koch.
