- Coffeyville Reciprocating Engine Power Plant
The City of Coffeyville selected Burns & McDonnell to provide full engineering, procurement support and construction management (EPCM), permitting, and gas services for a new reciprocating engine power plant. The plant will provide 56 megawatts (MW) using three natural gas-fired Wärtsilä 18.8-MW reciprocating engine generators.
Our team engineered the installation of the three Wärtsilä 18V50SG engines and the balance-of-plant equipment to interface with the city's 69-kV transmission system. Each engine — chosen for its low heat rate, low emissions and efficiency — provides 18.8 MW of power, allowing the city to meet its native load and contract commitments.
Features include outstanding heat rates at all loads and high ambient temperatures while providing rapid response to varying grid conditions. This plant also employs a closed-loop cooling system, so it will not consume process water or require wastewater treatment or disposal.
