TRANSPORT AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS FOR COAL PART TWO, MAIN REPORT
The Danish energy policy is to substitute oil fuels by coal, at least in larger industrial enterprises. The purpose of this investigation is to plan the future coal consumption, to calculate models for coordinate transportation systems and to establish coal quality requirements and handling equipment siting. The supply model comprehends: supplies, unloading, handling, storage and domestic transportation of coal. Furnace equipment and corresponding coal consumption, flexibility and demand, and the now-existing infrastructure of coal distribution are analyzed. There is proposed a handling system of four coal qualities, covering any possible demand. For every coal-type there are given technical, economic and environmental data in a catalogue. A random average-size county has been chosen as an example and 9 various system proposals of coal handling and distribution for industrial purposes and district heating systems. Train, truck and ship transport costs have been compared for the assumed four coal-types and storae costs and safety (self-ignition prevention) evaluated. The simulated model proves usefulness of a control distribution network for coal supplies. (ERA citation 09:032613)
