Farmington city officials Friday signed an agreement with a company that proposes outfitting the coal-fired San Juan Generating Station with carbon-capture technology in an effort to extend the power plant’s life beyond its planned closure in 2022.
The rule only applies to certain existing coal-fired Electric Generating Units (EGUs) and excludes integrated gasification combined-cycle (IGCC) facilities.
POWERGEN will not be focused on yesterday, for it is not reliving the glory days of coal generation past. The sessions, as the titles suggest, are focused on the future.
India expects that its coal energy generation will grow by 22% by the end of 2022, putting climate change goals – just recently reported as being on-track – in severe jeopardy.
Under the plan, unit 1 will be repowered with gas-fired combined-cycle technology. The gas-fired unit would have 1,090 MW of generating capacity once completed in 2023.
The Japanese boiler maker and power generator firm was awarded the contract by Cheng Loong Corp. (CLC) for the Chupei Mill. Commercial operation of the new boiler is scheduled for July 2021.
China Energy Group, the country’s biggest power generator, will add more than 6 GW of new ultra-lowemission coal-fired capacity this year and another 5 GW next year.
A new water management system for coal combustion residuals (CCRs) will reduce the footprint from 435 acres to three, according to the TVA.
Duke Energy Indiana gained cose to 90 percent of its generating power from coal last year.
These are cost-shared research projects developing advanced technologies for improving the reliability, performance and flexibility of the nation’s existing coal-fired power fleet.
