Clyde Bergemann Power Group will engineer, supply, and commission a series of bottom ash handling systems for the South Carolina utility Santee Cooper. The equipment will help the utility comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Effluent Limitation Guidelines (ELG) and Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) regulations at its Winyah and Cross Generating Stations.
The installed systems will handle bottom ash, pyrites, and economizer/SCR ash for eight coal-fired boilers that have a combined power output of 3,600 MW. The project at the Cross plant will also include multiple pump additions and piping modifications to create a closed-loop pyrite handling system and eliminate the need to send pyrites to the existing ash pond.
Equipment for the projects will include submerged scraper conveyor technologies and remote submerged scraper conveyor technologies.
Clyde Bergemann will conduct engineering work from its material handling product division in Malvem, Pennsylvania.
Project work has already begun, with deliveries expected to begin next January.
