At Burns & McDonnell, we understand that each client, each situation and each project are unique.

Our teams bring more than 35 years of experience in gas turbine generation - and the flexibility to work with your programs and your staff.

Combined Cycle Expertise to Meet Your Needs

Burns & McDonnell has been in the power engineering business since 1900. We have the experience to upgrade or modify any system. Since 1968, we've worked with numerous brands and models of gas turbines.

You won't find a better source for design, construction, troubleshooting and problem solving to get the best performance from your generating plant.

Alliant Energy's Power Iowa Energy Center was a successful development effort, with Burns & McDonnell managing the project from beginning to end.

Burns & McDonnell served as multiple prime contractor for permitting, detailed design, procurement and construction management of the award-winning project.

In initial phases, Burns & McDonnell provided support for siting, due diligence, technical support and capital cost estimates for a 550-megawatt natural gas facility with fuel oil backup capability.

The facility was designed to incorporate two General Electric 7FA combustion turbine-generators coupled with two heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) and a common steam turbine generator operating in combined cycle mode of operation.

 Key features include:

  • First GE 7FA to have black-start capability
  • Natural gas and fuel-oil fired
  • High level of supplemental firing and power augmentation
  • Utilize tertiary treated water for makeup water
  • Low emissions
  • Enclosed steam turbine, gas turbines and HRSGs
  • Aggressive design and construction schedule
  • Conceptual design
  • Cost estimating
  • Combined cycle conversion
  • Simple and combined cycle detailed design
  • Inlet cooling and thermal energy storage
  • Engineer-procure-construct (EPC) services
  • Owner and bank EPC oversight
  • Due diligence reviews
