BHEC is the pioneer in China’s coal industry to be engaged in design of power plant, especially power plant fueled by reject and slurry. As early as 1984, in order to make the best use of coal resources, the company established power engineering department to undertake design of power plant. Their business scope mainly covers design, consultancy and EPC contracting of power generation project, heating project, power transformation and transmission project, desulfuration project, new energy project and gas emission reduction project, particularly in utilizing slurry and reject for power generation. BHEC designed the first slurry power plant in China and the first coal water fuel boiler (220t/h）trial project, and successfully undertook EPC contracting projects in Indonesia and other places.
Over the past 20 years, BHEC has completed design in various stages for over 80 power plant projects fueled by reject, slurry, middlings, coal water mixture or gas all around China, and developed cooperative relationship with enterprises from oversea markets.
BHEC took the lead to apply high voltage unit, circulating fluidized bed and air cooling technology in the design of power plant in China.
The design works of power plant by BHEC have been awarded with national and ministry-level prizes, including: 2 National Golden Prizes for Excellent Design, 2 National Silver Prizes for Excellent Design, 2 Ministry-level Golden Prizes for Excellent Design, 1 Ministry-level Silver Prize for Excellent Design, 1 Ministry-level Copper Prize for Excellent Design and 9 National and Ministry-level Prizes for Engineering Consultancy. And the Power Engineering Department was nominated as “National Advanced Group of Coal Industry”.
