Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction contributes to making the Earth cleaner by developing technologies that maximize power generating efficiency (superconductor-based generators, ultra-super-critical pulverized coal thermal power plant) and are not dependent on fossil fuels (wind power), as well as technologies that remove harmful substances from exhaust gases (post carbon capture, pure oxygen combustion) and maximize the energy efficiency (ESS, microgrid).
Harnessing its experience, know-how and world-renowned technology in the power plant industry, Doosan was the first in Korea to develop 3MW wind power generation systems for both onshore and offshore sites. With continuous R&D, Doosan aims to grow into a global leader in spearheading green growth.
1000MW ultra-supercritical pulverized coal thermal power plants are next-generation power systems suitable for responding to increased fuel prices and environmental regulations that become stricter than ever. Having successfully developed its proprietary technology needed to design and manufacture the main equipment for the world’s top-level highly-efficient, environment-friendly 1000MW-grade USC power generation system, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction is currently undertaking a demonstration of Shin-Boryeong units 1 and 2, with the aim of meeting its 2016 COD (Commercial Operation Date) target.
Post carbon capture technology selectively captures carbon dioxide from fossil-fuel combustion emissions (nitrogen, CO2, H2O, oxygen, etc), and is highly effective in eliminating carbon dioxide, the major cause of the greenhouse effect.
Oxy-Fuel Combustion is the process of burning coals using oxygen instead of air to discharge most exhaust gases as carbon dioxide, thus maximizing the capture efficiency of carbon dioxide. This process is also effective in reducing emissions of exhaust gases such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and mercury. Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions of the earth by expediting the commercialization of Oxy-Fuel Combustion technology.
The application of superconductors having zero electric resistance at very low temperature, the superconducting generators and motors improve efficiency and dramatically reduce weight and size compared with copper generators and motors. Once developed, this superconducting generator/motor technology will become a key technological engine behind Doosan’s accelerated green growth. The technology will overcome the limitations of conventional rotary machines and will be used not only in large-scale wind power generation but also in eco-friendly ship propulsion.
Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) is a technology that uses gasification process to turn coal, bio-mass and other heavy residual oil into synthesis gas for combined cycle generation fuel. What makes coal-based IGCC power plants different from other conventional power plants is that the former features gasification plants that turn coal into clean gas. The gasification process can not only generate electricity but also produce a variety of products, including chemical feedstock, hydrogen, synthetic natural gas and synthetic oil, depending on downstream facilities and process configuration changes.
Supercritical CO2 Waste Heat Recovery System is an advanced eco-friendly technology, converting waste heat generated from various industrial processes to electricity. Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction partnered with Echogen Power Systems to provide high-efficiency 1~20MW waste heat recovery systems and related services, applicable across cement, steel, diesel generation, incinerator and many other industries.
