Station Two Units 1 & 2 FGD Retrofit

Location: Henderson, Ky.

Client: Henderson Municipal Power & Light Department

Burns & McDonnell completed a major flue gas desulfurization (FGD) retrofit project for the Municipal Power & Light Department in Henderson, Ky. Station Two is a coal-fired electric power generating station consisting of two coal-fired generating units with a combined capacity of 337 MW. The FGD systems were installed as part of the utility's compliance plan to meet the Phase 1 sulfur dioxide reduction requirements of Title IV of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. Each FGD system is a magnesium-promoted wet lime process with a single stainless steel absorber module for each generating unit. A new chimney with two liners was constructed to exhaust the wet flue gas from the absorber modules.

These FGD systems were two of the lowest cost (in dollars per kilowatt) of all FGD systems constructed in the U.S. at the time. The project was completed under budget and on schedule.
