Electric Power Generation
Natural gas has become the backbone for fossil generation within the North American market. Burns & McDonnell’s vast experience ranges from aeroderivatives to the largest J-class and advanced class combustion turbines to reciprocating engines. Our work in advanced class combustion turbines includes the Warren County Power Station, a 1,329-MW combined cycle plant that ranks among the cleanest and most efficient in the U.S. The facility provides enough power for 325,000 homes, and the design-build project was named Project of the Year/Best Natural Gas-Fired Project by Power Engineering magazine.
We are proud of Warren County Power Station for many reasons. It is already one of the cleanest and most reliable in the nation and was built to be both environmentally and economically efficient.
Many of our recent generation facilities have integrated optimized solutions such as air-cooled condensing, inlet chillers, zero liquid discharge (ZLD) and low-noise design. The affordability of natural gas makes it the primary choice for new generation today.
Our clients need a team with decades of experience in gas turbine generation; more than 1,200 staff members work on gas generation projects, from 3-D modeling to design to engineer-procure-construct (EPC) project delivery. We have worked in very challenging EPC environments, finding solutions for our clients that meet their budgets, schedules and space limitations.
We have the experience to upgrade or modify any system and work with numerous brands and models of gas turbines.
