2 April 2008 — Marsulex Environmental Technologies (MET) was awarded a contract by Minnkota Power Cooperative Inc. to design, supply and install a wet flue gas desulfurization (FGD) system and lime preparation system at its lignite-fired, Milton R. Young Station.
MET will supply technology, engineering and FGD equipment for Unit 1, rated at 250 MW, and will also design, supply and erect the lime storage, handling and preparation system. Burns & McDonnell will be the architect engineer for the project.
The system features MET’s enhanced, open spray tower design utilizing lime-based reagent and is designed for inhibited oxidation of reaction by-product The system is designed to reduce emissions of SO2, particulates, mercury and other air emissions to specified levels. The new lime preparation and inhibited oxidation systems are designed to supply reagents for both the existing Unit 2 FGD system as well as the new Unit 1 system. Engineering is expected to begin immediately. Start-up of the FGD system is scheduled for April 2011.
