Clean coal technology installed at coal-fired power plants

Helmkamp Construction Co. has completed the installation of 14 CyClean Refined Coal Facilities for Clean Coal Solutions at power plants in 10 states.

The process is a patented refined coal technology that enhances combustion and reduces emissions of Power River Basin coal burned in cyclone boilers. CyClean also uses a storage and conveying system to add a cost-effective granular additive after the coal leaves the plant’s crusher house.

Helmkamp installed the CyClean conveying system and the chemical application equipment plus all supporting structural steel on a turnkey basis at each power plant. The system also has tax credits associated with the installation of the process. Helmkamp helped Clean Coal Solutions install and demonstrate the full-scale CyClean system at several power plants earlier in 2012. The installations often had to be performed on a 24-7 basis in an operating plant with no outages.

Helmkamp also worked with Clean Coal Solutions to install and demonstrate their new M45 refined coal solution at power plants in Mississippi and Texas. M45 is another new technology that reduces emissions of mercury by more than 40 percent and NOx by more than 20 percent. M45 is not limited to cyclone boilers.
