TAS Energy has been awarded a contract for a energy storage project at a new 1,300 MW combined-cycle natural gas-fired power plant in Virginia. The storage project is a combination of Thermal Energy Storage (TES) and Turbine Inlet Chilling (TIC) systems.
TAS will be providing three of its patented F-70 chiller packages, each rated at 7,900 tons, and a variable-speed pump skid that interfaces with the TES tank, gas turbine filter house coils and the chiller packages for the Warren County Power Station.
The contract was awarded by Warren County Energy Partners (WCEP), a joint venture between Zachry Industrial Inc. and Burns & McDonnell. WCEP was selected by Dominion (NYSE: D) as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the plant that is expected to be operational in 2014.
TAS Energy will deliver the bulk of the TIC system, including the inlet cooling coils and the coil modules. When placed in combination with a TES tank, the F-70 chiller packages and pump skid will provide inlet chilling for the combined cycle project which will use three Mitsubishi M501G gas turbines and one Mitsubishi TC4F steam turbine.
TAS Energy will be manufacturing the equipment at their facility in Houston, Texas and expects delivery in early 2013.
