Thermal Power Plant (TPP) Bitola is the largest lignite-based TPP in the Republic of Macedonia with three units put into operation in 1982, 1984 and 1988, respectively. All three units have already operated more than 200.000 hours each, therefore they are far beyond their normal life
expectancy. Thus, a large-scale rehabilitation program including extensive boiler rehabilitation of all three units, lignite supply chain modernization, steam turbines, generators and control system modernization, etc. was initiated. During rehabilitation, a special attention was paid that after the rehabilitation, all three units become fully compliant with the EU Directive for LCP Plants (EU
Directive 2001/80/EC).
In this paper, the authors present brief description of the extensive boiler’s rehabilitation program, the implemented technology, and some lessons learned during the process of rehabilitation. In addition, the achieved rehabilitation results are also given and discussed.
