1.             INTRODUCTION

 

The operational phase Lamma Power Station Extension commenced in mid October 2006 following the completion of erection works and commissioning tests for Unit L9.  The Environmental Team (hereinafter called the “ET”) was formed within The Hongkong Electric Co. Ltd (HEC) to undertake Environmental Monitoring and Audit for “Operation of Lamma Power Station Extension” (hereinafter called the “Project”).  Under the requirements of Section 6 of Environmental Permit EP-071/2000/C, an EM&A programme for impact environmental monitoring set out in the EM&A Manual (Operational Phase) is required to be implemented.  In accordance with the EM&A Manual, environmental monitoring of air quality, noise and water quality are required for the Project.

 

This report summarizes the environmental monitoring and audit work for the Project for the month of August 2007.

 

 

1.1         Plant Availability during the Reporting Month

 

Unit L9 was fully available in the reporting month.

 

 

1.2         Defect Rectification for Lamma Extension’s Associated Transmission System

 

A defect was recently discovered in one of the newly laid submarine cables from Pak Kok Tsui Landing Point (N5) to Cyberport Landing Point (I1).  It had been identified that the defective point of the cable was located at the offshore subsea area near Pak Kok Tsui Landing Point (N5).  Pending for the issue of permit from DLO, marine civil works would be carried out at N5 seashore for detection of the cable fault.

 

 

1.3         Summary of EM&A Requirements

 

The EM&A program requires environmental monitoring for air quality, noise and water quality.  The EM&A monitoring work for air quality, noise and water quality are described in Sections 2, 3 and 4 respectively.

 

The following environmental audits are summarized in Section 5 of the report:

 

ˇ        Environmental monitoring results;

ˇ        The implementation status of environmental protection and pollution control / mitigation measures.

 

The future key issues for the Project will be reported in Section 6 of this report.



2.             AIR QUALITY

 

 

2.1         Monitoring Requirements

 

In accordance with the EM&A Manual (Operational Phase) for Lamma Extension, stack NOx is continuously monitored.  Stack NOx monitoring data would be checked against the Action/Limit Levels stated in the EM&A Manual. The monitoring frequency is shown in Table 2.1 below:

2.2         Summary of Results and Observations

 

Monitoring of stack NOx was conducted during the operation of Unit L9 in the reporting month.  A monthly summary of monitoring data is shown in Appendix C.

3.             NOISE

 

3.1         Monitoring Requirements

 

In accordance with the EM&A Manual for Lamma Extension (Operational Phase), continuous noise monitoring at Ash Lagoon is carried out to calculate the noise arising from the operation of Lamma Extension at the critical NSR at Hung Shing Ye.  Baseline noise levels are applied for correction to the noise monitoring data.  The data after corrections would be checked against the Limit Levels specified in the EM&A Manual. 

 

The noise monitoring location is shown in Figure 3.1.  The monitoring parameter and frequency are shown in Table 3.1 below:

6.2         Defect Rectification for Lamma Extension’s Associated Transmission System

 

A defect was recently discovered in one of the newly laid submarine cables from Pak Kok Tsui Landing Point (N5) to Cyberport Landing Point (I1).  It had been identified that the defective point of the cable was located at the offshore subsea area near Pak Kok Tsui Landing Point (N5).  Pending for the issue of permit from DLO, marine civil works would be carried out at N5 seashore for detection of the cable fault. 

 

Since the fault investigation would be carried out on a cable installation barge and subsequent repair work would be similar to the cable laying work, all requirements stipulated in the Environmental Permit for Lamma Power Station Extension (EP-071/2000/C) would be complied with.

Mitigation Measures

Implementation Status

 

Air Quality

 

A1

Implement the gas-fired units as base-load units.  For the existing power station, the more efficient units incorporating FGD and low NOx systems shall be operated first under normal situation to meet system demand.  In case of any deviations from this, EPD shall be notified of the details and circumstances for the deviation.

Complied

A2

HEC shall undertake annual revisions and update of its GHG emissions inventory, which covers all HEC existing facilities and new extension, for at least the six GHGs specified under the Kyoto Protocol (CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCs, PFCs and SF6).  The inventory shall be established and maintained in accordance with the latest IPCC Guidelines or any other guidelines issued by Government, with details documented for regular reviews and updates. The inventory shall be reported on an annual basis, including actual figures and targets for the previous and current years, as well as the next year's forecast.  Discrepancies for actual versus target figures and actions for improvement or enhancement shall be discussed.  HEC shall update the inventory according to the figures of the electricity load forecast, upon every subsequent review by the Government.  This shall also be reported in the annual report. 

 

(The annual report of GHG emissions inventory shall be deposited with the Director of Environmental Protection within three months after the end of the reporting period.)

Water Quality

 

B1

No further mitigation measures were found to be necessary provided the discharge of cooling water and residual chlorine are kept below the rates assumed in the water quality assessment*.

 

*All discharges of effluent/wastewater shall be controlled through licensing under the Technical Memorandum for Effluents Discharged into Drainage and Sewerage Systems. Inland and Coastal Waters, issued under Section 21 of the Water Pollution Control Ordinance.

Noise

 

C1

HEC shall implement the gas-fired units for based-load operation to minimize the noise generated from the existing units.

Implementation Status

 

LAND CONTAMINATION AND WASTE MANAGEMENT

 

E1

HEC shall maintain records of the following items:

 

-         integrity testing of light oil tanks*;

-         daily inspection of the light oil tanks and bunded areas*;

-         quantities of oily waste and sludge generated from oil interceptors and chemical waste generated from operation of the power station;

-         deposal oil oily waste/sludge and chemical waste to licenced site;

-         quantities of chemical and chemical waste;

-         incident of spillage and remediation actions; and

-         emergency response training and drills.

 

* As the Light Gas Oil (LGO) for Lamma Extension is supplied from the existing LGO storage tanks located at Lamma Power Station, there is no LGO storage tank at Lamma Extension.
