Enefit280 Oil Plant 

38DZ6MFCThe field trip to Ida-Viru county will offer an extraordinary opportunity to see the unique shale oil, gas and electricity plant in operation, the Enefit280. Enefit280 has proven to have very low air emissions and high efficiency. The plant consumes 2.4 million tons of oil shale annually and produces 1.7 million barrels of shale oil, 75 million m3 of hydrogen rich retort gas and 200 GWh of electricity per year. Guests will have an unprecedented opportunity to meet and consult with the top management and experts of Enefit Oil and Gas and Enefit Outotec Technology.

 

Auvere Power Plant

_MG_0066The world´s largest oil shale fired power plant, Auvere plant is based on Alstom’s circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler technology and using local oil shale and biomass for fuel. The new plant will be commissioned in 2016 and it will supply the majority of the country’s domestic electricity consumption in full compliance with the latest and upcoming stringent European Union emission directives, thanks to the state-of-the-art technology. Additionally the higher efficiency of the new power plant will contribute to reducing CO2 emissions. The power plant is located near the town of Narva, near the existing two Narva power plants which have an installed electric capacity of 2,380 MW.

 

Narva Open Cast Mine

Enefit07The field trip will include the most extensive oil shale open cast in Estonia. Guests will get a unique first-hand experience of the mining, production and reclamation processes. The Narva Open Cast Mine has a production capacity of 6 million tons per year, the total annual production of the Enefit Mines is around 10 million tons.

 

Narva Wind Park

_MG_1791_1We will visit the Narva Wind Park, which was established in 2011. Enefit installed 17 wind turbines to the second ash field of the Balti Power Plant, which was closed and landscaped in 2008. The ash field, which had previously been used for the material left over from oil shale energy production, has become the foundation for the wind park. The total capacity of the first Narva Wind Park is 39 MW, and its annual electricity output is around 90 GWh. The renewable electricity produced by the wind power plant will be enough to meet the annual electricity needs of 35,000 average Estonian households in the future. Our tour bus will take the visitors right to the top of the ash field to enjoy the view of the surrounding areas.

 

NB! To register for the field trip, participants must also register to attend the symposium.

Field Trip Dress Code: casual, comfortable. Helmets (and boots in Narva open cast mine) will be provided.
