Hitachi Power Systems America Awarded Contract with Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association Inc. for Design and Supply of a SCR System
Hitachi environmental technology will help reduce power plant emissions
BASKING RIDGE, N.J., January, 2014 - Hitachi Power Systems America, Ltd. (HPSA), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi America, Ltd., today announced that it has been awarded a contract for the design and supply of a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) System including Hitachi’s proprietary catalyst with Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, Inc. for its Craig Generation Station, Unit 2, located in Craig, Colorado.
The contract includes the design and supply of a SCR System for Craig Unit 2 which is a coal-fired steam electric generating unit with a net capacity of approximately 428 MW. The Craig Station fires Colorado low sulfur bituminous coal as its primary fuel. SCR systems reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, a contributor to the formation of ozone and smog. The SCR system being furnished by HPSA will utilize Hitachi’s state-of-the-art catalyst, offering high NOx removal efficiencies over a wide operating load range. This leading edge technology will help Tri-State Generation meet or exceed its NOx reduction requirements, while keeping sulfur trioxide (SO3) emissions low. This highly reliable system is being designed for continuous operation throughout the year.
Henry Bartoli, president and CEO of HPSA stated, “We are extremely pleased to have been selected by Tri-State Generation to execute this project and look forward to supporting Tri-State Generation’s efforts to supply its customers with clean, efficient, low cost electricity. This contract represents another important milestone in the deployment of Hitachi’s proven technologies to the U.S. markets and further establishes HPSA’s important leadership position as an industry leader in the reduction of emissions from power generation facilities.”
