Alstom wins $95mn emissions control equipment contract

Alstom has announced the award of a $95 million contract to supply its NID Dry Flue Gas Desulphurization (DFGD) Systems for two 660 MW coal-fired units at the Homer City Generating Station in Indiana County, Penn. The project is designed to reduce emissions of sulfur dioxide, mercury and other pollutants. The Homer City plant is owned by Edison International (NYSE: EIX) and operated by its subsidiary Midwest Generation.

Alstom’s Knoxville, Tenn.-based North American Environmental Control Systems team will supply NID system reactors, fabric filters, mixer and hydrators, inlet and outlet plenums, lime storage and feed systems, and activated carbon injection equipment to Kiewit Power Constructors under a Turnkey EPC Agreement for the environmental upgrades. In a press release, Alstom said the vast majority of manufacturing activities associated with Alstom’s role in the Homer City NID deployment will take place within the U.S.

Alstom has installed more than 60 NID systems worldwide. The Homer City project represents Alstom’s third recent NID project involving pulverized coal boilers in the U.S. The NID unit at NRG’s (NYSE: NRG) Indian River Unit 4 (400 MW) is in the final stages of commissioning, and a second system at Unit 3 of Dominion’s (NYSE: D) Brayton Point Plant (630 MW) is under construction and scheduled to begin service in early 2013.

The Homer City Generating Station was commissioned in 1969, consists of three 660 MW coal-burning units. Alstom previously supplied selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and wet flue gas desulfurization (WFGD) systems for Unit 3 at the Homer City plant.
