Several features were incorporated into the design to help reduce the plant’s environmental footprint. The combustion turbine generators use pipeline-quality natural gas as the fuel source, rather than coal or oil. Selective catalytic reduction technology helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, water for the plant is supplied from on-site wells, and wastewater goes to on-site evaporation ponds rather than to the local sewer system.
We provided all engineering services, including civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and control systems engineering, for the plant’s development. We also provided engineering support during construction, and developed start-up and operating procedures for the plant. The Coolidge power station was successfully completed ahead of schedule and under budget.
