INNOVATIVE STEAM TECHNOLOGIES has selected EmeraChem, LLC to supply two catalyst systems for installation at the George Sullivan Power Plant project in Anchorage, Alaska, and a catalyst system for installation at the Glenarm power plant project in Pasadena, CA.
The expansion to the 1970’s era George Sullivan Power Plant is expected to be completed by the summer of 2016. Municipal Light & Power anticipates the expansion to be one of the world’s most energy-efficient, thermal generation power plants. The $275 million plant expansion will produce 120 megawatts in a 2×1 combined-cycle configuration.
Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) has begun a major project to replace an aging power generating unit with a more efficient combined cycle unit at the Glenarm Power Plant. Known as the Glenarm Power Plant Repowering Project, the installation of the new unit will allow PWP to reduce fuel consumption and emissions while increasing reliability. The new plant will operate a clean, efficient 71 megawatt combined-cycle unit fueled by natural gas.
EmeraChem has equipped over 250 combustion turbines with oxidation catalyst, or catalytic emission control systems worldwide and brings top-level scientific knowledge and many years of experience to the project.
“EmeraChem is honored to be working with IST on these projects,” said Steven DeCicco, EmeraChem COO. “Our experience in the PowerGen market and scientific expertise will ensure that these plants operate in the cleanest and most efficient way possible.”
EmeraChem is a leader in surface chemistry and catalysis for the control of air emissions from power generating facilities, natural gas compression stations and mobile vehicles. As both a developer and manufacturer of catalytic technologies, sound attenuation products, and related systems, EmeraChem has a diverse portfolio of products supported by best-in-class scientific, engineering and application support.
