Jastrz?bska Spó?ka W?glowa S.A., the European Union’s largest producer of high-quality hard coking coal for use in the of iron and steel making industries, has selected Cat dealer Eneria Poland to supply an integrated cogeneration system at its Knurów-Szczyg?owice mine in southern Poland.
Commissioned in June, the system uses coal mine methane (CMM) to produce up to 12 MW of power and 12 MW of thermal energy. The electricity is used to supply power for conveyors, compressors, coal processing, mine ventilation systems, and other operations. The thermal energy captured is processed through heat exchangers to maintain the proper temperature in the mining workspace.
