GE Kemper valves

GE announced that it has been awarded a contract to provide Masoneilan, LincolnLog and SteamForm modulating steam control valves and auxiliary systems to Mississippi Power’s 582 MW integrated combined-cycle power plant in Kemper County, Miss.

The order includes more than 50 separate turbine and process steam bypass valves, spray water control valves, pressure reducing valves and silencers. Masoneilan bypass valves will facilitate the start-up, shut-down and trip cycles of the steam turbines as well as provide process steam to and from the gasifier and are necessary for the flexible operation of the plant in response to fluctuating power demand.

The valves and auxiliary systems are expected to be delivered in 2011 and the plant is expected to be operational by 2014.
