Project Description:

Sargent & Lundy’s overall work scope encompassed the detailed design of the structural steel and balance-of-plant (BOP) for the SCR retrofit. This included procurement of the SCR reactors and SCR ductwork. We were also responsible for all BOP design and procurement of all BOP equipment, including flue gas system modifications, ammonia supply, piles, concrete foundations, structural steel, electrical equipment, mechanical piping, etc.

The Unit 2 SCR retrofit was part of a larger EPC Air Quality Control System (AQCS) retrofit project for both Units 1 and 2. The overall AQCS retrofit included wet flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems, distributed control system (DCS) conversions, and pulse-jet fabric filters. EPC detailed design began in 2011, and the EPC contractor, Kiewit, started construction in 2012.
