The plant is located on the south coast of Sweden and is operated by Karlshamn Kraft AB, part of E.ON Utility Group. The plant has been operating since the early 1970`s and primarily as a peak shaving and reserve facility for when there was insufficient hydro and nuclear capacity within the Swedish system.
The plant comprises of three oil-fired 340MWe Units and MSAR® tests were performed on Unit 3. Unit 3 is retrofitted with Electrostatic Precipitators (ESP), a Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) system and a Selective Catalytic Reducing (SCR) system for NOx emission control.
The existing fuel system was adapted for MSAR® and a total of 700m³ was manufactured at the Power Plant, prepared and stored in one of the Unit 3 day tanks prior to testing.
