KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Indiana Water Partners, a joint venture between Burns & McDonnell and Bowen Engineering Corp., has been awarded a contract to provide a range of services including engineering design, procurement, construction and startup management services for a coal-to-gas conversion of three units at Indianapolis Power & Light Company's Harding Street Station. Burns & McDonnell partnered with Indianapolis-based Bowen (www.bowenengineering.com), a self-performing general contractor serving clients throughout the United States. The project was awarded in February and is scheduled to be completed in December 2016. Following the fuel conversion, generating capacity at the three units will total more than 650 megawatts (MW). The conversion project is part of IPL's compliance plan for its coal-fired units.
The conversion, which is subject to Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission approval, will incorporate a burner management system controls upgrade for all three units and installation of new burners within the three existing boilers, as well as igniters. The controls upgrade, a critical phase of the project, will include modification of the system to meet new operating performance requirements for gas-fired generation. The project will also entail installation of flue gas recirculating fans, flue gas draft modifications, a control system evergreen update and installation of an auxiliary boiler.
