- 620-MW Black Start Installation
Our team partnered with Skanska Inc. to engineer, procure and construct (EPC) a diesel generator installation to provide power for emergency, black start and peak-shaving purposes. The facility consists of four GE 7FA dual-fuel combustion turbines with a capacity of 620 MW. Caterpillar C175-16 diesel generators were installed in a centrally located, pre-engineered metal building along with paralleling switchgear and a stand-alone master control panel. Each diesel generator included a diesel oxidation catalyst for particulate matter and hydrocarbon control and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) for NOx reduction using ammonia. This equipment allows the diesel engines to meet the EPA Tier 4 emissions standards and operate as non-emergency stationary engines.
