Avedore Power Station is regarded as one of the most efficient coal fired CHP plants in the world. The plant, situated in Denmark close to Copenhagen, produces district heat for the metropolitan region and electricity for the Zealand grid. The capacity of the plant is 250 MW electricity and 330 MJ/sec district heat. The power station is characterised by a high total efficiency (up to 92%) and by the use of modern technology to reduce its environmental impact. It is equipped with a desulphurizer, a de-NOx system that removes nitrogen oxides from the flue gas and an ash removal installation. Construction started in 1985 and the plant went into commercial operation in the autumn of 1990
