Air quality monitoring
Since 2006, Slovenské elektrárne provides for continual monitoring of air quality in the surroundings of Nováky Power Plant and Vojany Power Plant. Automatic monitoring stations (AMS) in municipality Oslany (region Nováky) and municipality Leles (region Vojany) permanently monitor the values of PM10 (dust particles), SO2 and NOX.
The data are continually provided to the relevant environmental authorities and the Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute. The measured values are below the limit values in respect of human health protection and critical levels in relation to vegetation protection.
The results of continual air quality monitoring in the surroundings of thermal power plants are depicted in the following charts.
