Midwest Power Company Environmental Upgrade

Project Highlights 

As part of the upgrade, PULLMAN was contracted to design and construct several key elements of the upgrade, including:

  • New Unit 2 chimney (530’ tall reinforced concrete with FRP liner)
  • New FRP Ductwork (587 linear feet) to connect absorbers to chimneys.
  • Retrofit of existing chimney with C-276 Alloy clad steel liner system (7,140 sqft of Roll Clad and 32,460 sqft of wallpaper)
  • Demolition of old Unit 1 chimney
Project Description 

In efforts to maintain its commitment to the environment, a Midwestern power company significantly upgraded its stations by installing equipment to reduce SO2 and NOX emissions.

PULLMAN was selected by the client because our design-build capabilities and experience matched the client’s need to safely integrate the new air quality control systems with the existing plant infrastructure.

PULLMAN engineers extensively utilized building information modeling (BIM) in the preplanning process to develop detailed construction sequencing plans to meet the challenge of performing work in and around the existing systems.

The environmental project was completed on time and within budget, and continues to contribute to provide electric energy to its customers.
