Our team provided professional services for a study to evaluate the feasibility of installing a 120 MW ECO2 ammonia carbon capture system demonstration plant at the Basin Electric Power Cooperative Antelope Valley Station.
Technical development studies
Balance of plant conceptual engineering
We conducted technical evaluations, including selecting the appropriate steam supply and condensate return for the Powerspan Technology Island. Our team also evaluated steam supply alternatives, cooling water requirements and power supply alternatives based on process requirements. The impact on the existing plant steam cycle was analyzed by modeling the existing plant cycle and determining the effects of steam and cooling alternatives and water balance impacts were developed for supply, treatment and disposal systems. An electrical system assessment was also prepared to determine adequacy of the existing system. We collaborated with Powerspan to develop a conceptual cost estimate of the BOP facilities based on conceptual engineering design.
Powerspan was selected to complete a FEED study for this project, and we were chosen to perform BOP engineering to support the FEED effort. Our scope of work included conceptual design, optimization analysis and budget-level cost estimating.
