Can Digital Deliver for an Industry in Transformation?

Digital is expected to be a gamechanger, so the industry’s broad adoption of digital solutions is no coincidence.

DOE Offers $50 Million to Improve Coal Generation

DOE recently announced a $50 million funding opportunity to design, construct, and operate two large-scale pilots for transformational coal technologies that improve coal-powered systems' performance, efficiency, emission reduction and electricity cost.

War Stories from the ‘Dash to Gas’

During the construction boom in combined-cycle/cogeneration plants of the 1990s - known as the 'dash to gas' - we were brought in to help several projects that had fallen behind schedule or were suffering from acrimonious relations between a major contractor and the project owner.

Expanding the Toolbox: How to Use Demand Response to Increase Grid Reliability

While utilities across the country are adapting to manage and navigate a new energy environment, it can be helpful to look at four states who have implemented innovative regulatory mechanisms to incentivize utilities to help customers better manage their energy.

Addressing FGD Wastewater Limitations

The Environmental Protections Agency estimates that roughly 12 percent of steam electric power plants will have to make new investments including design modifications, process changes, facility expansions, or installing new treatment systems to comply with the agency's effluent limitation guidelines.

4 Strategies for Reducing Planned Outage Duration and Cost

Over the last three decades, the nuclear industry has made tremendous progress in reducing the duration of planned outages. It is almost unimaginable to think that in 1990, the average planned outage took more than three months to complete.

Evaluation of Long-Term Membrane Performance with Continuous Use of Hydro-Optic UV Dechlorination at Plant...

Plant Bowen undertook a three month evaluation of a non-chemical dechlorination process, the Hydro-Optic (HOD) UV water treatment technology, manufactured by Atlantium Technologies, Inc., to improve the overall quality of reverse osmosis (RO) feed water at the Plant.

Outage Management: Critical to Factor in the Bus Duct

Operators have the impression that because there are not as many moving parts as something such as a turbine generator, the bus duct system does not require the same amount of attention. This common misconception will lead decision-makers to overlook this system when planning upgrades/repairs during a major planned outage.

The Ins and Outs of Low NOx Burner Retrofits

Low NOx burner retrofits to an existing boiler, dryer or incinerator aren't as simple as pulling out the old burner and bolting in a new one. There is so much more that needs to be considered as part of the engineering and purchase decision process.

Off Site Build and Transport – A unique solution to a unique problem

The 150-mile journey took 36 hours, and the unit had to pass under 19 bridges - the lowest of which left us with just 9 feet to spare. It sailed past the Statue of Liberty and to the Woodbrige site, where a 60-foot steel ramp bridge was erected to drive the entire HRSG directly on to the site.
