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. (HK Electric) 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 June 2013.

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:

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

HK Electric shall undertake annual revisions and update of its GHG emissions inventory, which covers all HK Electric 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.  HK Electric 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

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

-       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
