On March 14, 2017 as part of works aimed at the implementation of the Environment Management System in accordance with norm PN-EN ISO 14001:2015, the Management Board of TAMEH POLSKA sp. z o.o. approved the Environmental Policy which obligates the Company to run business with respect for the natural environment.
Environment Management System was implemented in the following scope:
- Generation of electric energy, heat and power utilities for the production of steel.
in the following locations:
- Generation Plant Nowa, Al. Marszałka Józefa Piłsudskiego 92/102B, 41-308 Dąbrowa Górnicza,
- Generation Plant Kraków in Kraków, ul. Ujastek 1, 31-752 Kraków,
- Generation Plant Blachownia in Kędzierzyn-Koźle, ul Energetyków 11, 47-225 Kędzierzyn-Koźle
On 20.06.2017 TAMEH POLSKA received a certificate confirming implementation and practical application of the System.
A supervisory audit conducted on 18.06.2018 confirmed compliance of the implemented system with norm PN-EN ISO 14001:2015 and the efficient functioning of environment management systems.
On 3, 5 and 9.06.2020 was carried out the first stage of re-certification audit, in result TAMEH POLSKA confirmed the compliance of the implemented system with standard PN-EN ISO 14001:2015 and thus extend the validity of certificate for 6 months. The 2nd stage of audit is planned in August this year, which extend the validity of the certificate for 3 years.
On May 13.2020 the tariff for heat was approved by President of the Energy Regulatory Office. The heat tariff is set of prices, rates and fees for heat, also conditions of their use. The tariff was published in Public Information Bulletin of the Energy Regulatory Office on May 15.2020 (item 96).
Heat prices resulting from approved tariff of TAMEH POLSKA sp. z o.o. effective from June 1.2020 for 12 months.
Heat is generated through highly-efficient co-generation in all three Generation Plants i.e. Generation Plant Nowa in Dąbrowa Górnicza, Generation Plant Kraków in Kraków and Generation Plant Blachownia in Kędzierzyn-Koźle.
Transposition in Q4 2014 to the Polish legislation of Directive 2010/75/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 November 2010 on industrial emissions (integrated pollution prevention and control) - known as IED, introduces to our legal system much stricter standards with respect to emissions of certain substances to air. Those requirements became even more stringent on August 17, 2017 when Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2017/1442 of 31 July 2017 establishing best available techniques (BAT) conclusions for large combustion plants was published in the Official Journal of the European Union.
Since its creation, TAMEH POLSKA has greatly emphasized environmental and efficiency activities which will make it possible for all our Plants to meet legal requirements and expectations of the local community.
A new 55 MWe turbo generator was handed over for operation last year in Generation Plant Nowa in Dąbrowa Górnicza. Another key environmental investment is in progress in Dąbrowa Górnicza - erection of waste gas DeNOx and DeSOx installations, as well as the erection of two new top recovery turbines (TRT), 12.5 MWe each, which will facilitate emission-free generation of electric energy.
Modernization of one of the boilers involving its adaptation to run on gas fuels only was completed in Generation Plant Kraków in Q1 2018. Erection of two gas boilers and a 55 MWe turbo generator is almost finished.
And last but not least, Generation Plant Blachownia in Kędzierzyn Koźle where works are in progress on the development of a comprehensive concept covering modernization of boilers and reduction of nitrogen oxide emission. All investments described contribute to the reduction of pollutions emitted to the atmosphere, and limit the impact of the Plants on other environmental aspects thanks to the use of new technologies, while at the same time increasing efficiency and reliability of the Company's operations.
