  1. Emerson to Convert UK Coal-Fired Plant to Biomass

    By Editors of Power Engineering EPH Lynemouth Power awarded Emerson the contract to convert the 44-year-old Lynemouth Power Station from coal to natural gas. The project is expected to be completed in 2017 and provide 390 MW of power from 1.4 million tons of wood waste per year. Emerson will be responsible for demolition, engineering, installation, start-up, commissioning and coordination of work among multiple suppliers and contractors. The company will also supply a single, integrated automation platform for all applications, including turbine, boiler, fuel handling, balance-of-plant processes and electrical systems. “Relying on a single supplier and a single technology platform for both the automation and electrical scope provides our client a number of benefits,” said Bob Yeager, president, Power & Water, Emerson Automation Solutions. “From a planning perspective, having a single interface and contract for design, engineering and delivery improves overall project efficiency. On the operational side, utilizing one technology platform will simplify plant operation and enhance plant performance on an ongoing basis.” Emerson said biomass power plants present a challenge due to the varying moisture content of biomass fuels. The Lynemouth conversion will include moisture control monitoring to ensure the proper amount of combustion air is deployed at any given time.
