- Batesville Water Treatment System
We provided engineering services for the expansion and improvement of the existing water treatment system (WTS) at Cooperative Energy’s Batesville Generating Station. Our team developed equipment procurement specifications for ultrafiltration and demineralizer equipment, provided proposal evaluations, electrical capacity reviews, construction specifications and drawings, bid evaluations and administrative services during construction.
Batesville is a gas-fired, combined-cycle electric power generation plant with output of 837 megawatts (MW). The existing WTS consists of a Kruger clarifier for pretreatment, gravity fed media filters (gravity filters) for water filtration, an intermediate clearwell for filtered water storage, and two subsequent cation/anion/mixed-bed demineralizer trains (demin trains) for demineralized water production.
Cooperative Energy elected to replace the existing gravity filters with ultrafiltration and to install a third, redundant cation/anion/ mixed-bed demin train to increase demineralized water production capacity and redundancy. These modifications will increase demineralized water production capacity to the facility to prevent generation limitations during temperate summer months.
