Electric Power Project Profile
Sometimes a plant can get by, running with older equipment and software, but this Part 75 Appendix D power plant was feeling the pinch of getting too far out of date.
This power plant is one of four purchased at the same time. Under the previous owner they were using a competing vendor’s (older) DAS software paired with ESC’s older model data controllers. When this facility was purchased several key employees stayed on at the facility. They wanted to upgrade the data controllers and indicated they were also having trouble with the installed DAS.
All four steam Electric Generating Units (EGUs) at this facility fall under 40CFR75 Appendix D and they burn Pipeline Natural Gas (PNG). Under their permit this means that only NOX, O2 and CO are directly monitored, but others are derived.
