Abstract

China has abundant coal resources. Majority of China's electricity comes from coal plants, and the pattern will not change in the short term. However, the pollution from coal plants is still a huge issue. Energy conservation and environmental protection, the coal market and the electricity market have become three major challenges in thermal power plant. Power generation cost is dominated by coal, so coal management is an important subject. A large coal-fired power plant has seized the favorable opportunity to take the initiative to deal with the situation. The plant hired an outside management consulting company to perfect the management systems, and to develop energy-saving emission reduction strategy. Especially in the fuel management, they carried out benchmarking and lean management in the whole process of production, and the employees were mobilized to upgrade equipments and systems. After five years the company has achieved remarkable results. This paper mainly introduces upgrading of coal handling system, the optimized setting of management departments, improvement of field measurement equipments, coal blending and construction of information management platform. These make the whole process of power generation more efficient, and can be used for reference of similar power company, in order to improve the management level.
