Handover ceremony of Czech development cooperation project implemented at the Thermal Power Plant #4 of Ulaanbaatar was held at the end of September 2013.
On 25 September 2013, ending ceremony of Czech development project “Modernization of the Control Room, Measurement and Control Equipment of Chemical Water Treatment Facilities in Ulaanbaatar Thermal Power Plant #4” was held. Mrs Ivana Grollová, Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Mongolia, Mr. M. Kaplan, Director of the Czech Development Agency and Mr. V. Langheinrich, CEO of the implementing company Bohemia Müller participated at this event from the Czech side; Mr. B. Tseveen, Director General of TPP #4 and Mr. T. Bayarbaatar, Director General of Ministry of Energy and numerous media from Mongolian side. Concurrently, TPP #4 celebrated 30th anniversary of its foundation.
TPP #4 itself is vital for Ulaanbaatar population, because with the installed capacity of 580 MW it supplies approximately 65 percent of total electricity and 60 percent of total heat. Previously, most of the equipment was with mechanic control, therefore a great appreciation for new technology was expressed towards Czechs. Czech Ambassador highlighted that Czech professionals have been engaged actively in many sectors in Mongolia, including energy, for many years and new development project will be implemented at TPP #3 in Ulaanbaatar. As a result of longtime cooperation, Czech professionals now have competitive advantages over others.
During this event, company Bohemia Müller signed a commercial maintenance contract for chemical facilities, similar as previous contract for coal transporting facilities.
This project was implemented in years 2011-2013 with the value of CZK 36 million and its core objective was automation of chemical water treatment facilities. It followed previous projects “Modernization of Drive and Power Block of TPP #4 and Establishing a Technical Training Center in Mongolian University of Science and Technology in Ulaanbaatar” (2003-2005, with funding of CZK 31 million, implemented by ZAT company) and “Modernization of the Generator of the TPP #4” (2006-2010, with funding of CZK 33 million, implemented by ZAT company).
