CLYDE BERGEMANN EEC COMPLETES ENVIRONMENTAL RETROFIT
PROJECT FOR NRG ENERGY
Hanover, Maryland (May 14, 2010) - Clyde Bergemann EEC (CBEEC) has completed a three-year environmental improvement project for NRG Energy, Inc. that reduces air emissions beyond requirements with lower operating costs, and minimized boiler outage time. The project retrofitted two of NRG’s coal-fueled power plants in New York, the Dunkirk and Huntley Generating Stations, totaling six boilers and a nominal generating capacity of 1000MW, with state-of-the-art environmental control systems. The work, valued at more than $170 million, included engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning. The project was completed within tight construction and outage schedules that allowed NRG to maximize service to its customers. Independent organizations have tested the systems and determined that they outperform guarantees on emissions reductions, leading to lower than expected operating costs.
