Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) is planning a $400 million project to install emissions controls at the Cayuga coal-fired power plant in Indiana in order to comply with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Mercury and Air Toxics Standard.
The project includes installing two selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems and dry sorbent injection systems to remove mercury and sulfur trioxide emissions. The controls are scheduled to go into service in late 2014 for Unit 1 and mid-2015 for Unit 2.
In 2008, the company invested approximately $500 million for two scrubbers to control sulfur dioxide emissions at Cayuga, according to a company release.
