Using dynamite, FP&L brought down two 300-foot tall twin smokestacks at an oil-fired plant in Palm Beach, Florida. One of the stacks is pictured snapping in half, like a bat breaking over Bo Jackson’s knee. The stacks were built in 1962. In their place, the utility built a modern-day combined cycle gas-fired power plant, which uses 33 percent less fuel and produces significantly fewer emissions than the old plant.</p> <div style="font-size: 12px;"> <p style="margin-left: 40px; font-size: 15px;"><a adhocenable="false" href="http://www.power-eng.com/articles/print/volume-119/issue-4/features/repowering-a-shuttered-plant-a-feasible-alternative-for-decommissioning.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Repowering a Shuttered Plant: A Feasible Alternative for Decommissioning</a><br>by <b>Rick Poulin</b> and <b>Bruce Ward,</b> Stantec <br>Sharp spikes in natural gas prices appear to be a thing of the distant past.<br>As regulatory restrictions have increased and renewable and cleaner sources of energy have become more available, smaller, less-efficient coal fired power plants are being forced to close. <a adhocenable="false" href="http://www.power-eng.com/articles/print/volume-119/issue-4/features/repowering-a-shuttered-plant-a-feasible-alternative-for-decommissioning.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">READ FULL ARTICLE</a></p></div> </div>

It's tossed around at board meetings and in marketing white papers. Its overuse has made it something of a buzzword, a term companies fall back on when they want to come across as cutting-edge. <a adhocenable="false" href="http://www.power-eng.com/articles/print/volume-120/issue-5/features/synergy-through-hybridity-harnessing-multiple-energy-sources-for-diversified-benefits.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">READ FULL ARTICLE</a></p></div> </div>

The $1.1 billion project features several innovations to maximize output, including a thermal energy storage system to chill the air supply for the combustion turbines. In addition to creating more than 100 permanent jobs, the project is expected to pump more than $35 million into the local economy each year.</p> <div style="font-size: 12px;"> <p style="margin-left: 40px; font-size: 15px;">A Cutting-Edge Approach to Combined-Cycle Plant Simulation</p> <p style="margin-left: 40px;"><b>By Keith Nelson and Billy Moore.</b></p> <p style="margin-left: 40px;">Dominion's 1,346-MW Warren County Generating Station in Virginia uses a 3-on-1 configuration with Mitsubishis Hitachi Power Systems America 501GAC combustion turbines. <a adhocenable="false" href="http://www.power-eng.com/articles/print/volume-120/issue-3/features/a-cutting-edge-approach-to-combined-cycle-plant-simulation.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">READ FULL ARTICLE</a></p></div> </div>
