Project Outcome

Description of Outcome
Progress Toward Outcome

Several IGCC plants are at different stage of development in the PRC.

The Tianjin IGCC power plant has been operating smoothly in 2014-15.

As requested by the Borrower, ADB cancelled loan savings in the amount of $23.16 million effective 26 November 2013 and subsequently approved the updating of baseline projections. In addition, the loan closing date was extended up to 31 October 2014 to accommodate a CCUS pilot project which will enhance the attainment of project's outcome. The loan was financially closed in February 2015.

Contract award for Grant 0196 is $4.8 million representing the contract with the coal gasifier and gas turbines supplier for the long-term maintenance of $4.5 million, and individual consultants' contracts of $0.3 million.

Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs
Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

The Tianjin IGCC power plant has been operating smoothly in 2014-15.

Through 2013, the plant had to go through some major repairs, including the replacement of (i) compressor at the air separation unit, and (ii) the nozzle at the combustion unit. In addition, further trial operations had to be completed. The plant has operated reliably since the beginning of 2014. Long-term maintenance contract is under the grant.

The draft PDD was prepared in cooperation with Greengen staff. Due to the uncertainty of post 2012 CDM, Greengen decided not to further pursue CDM possibility.
