Vogt Power to Supply Power Plant Equipment to North Carolina Utility
Vogt Power International Inc., a subsidiary of Babcock Power Inc., announced that it has received an order to supply the Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSG) for Progress Energy's Richmond County Energy Complex located south of Hamlet, North Carolina, U.S.A. The combined-cycle plant, fueled primarily by natural gas, will generate approximately 600 MW of electricity.
Vogt Power will supply two auxiliary fired, three pressure level natural circulation HRSGs with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems to operate behind Siemens SGT6-5000FD3 gas turbines. The SCR systems will allow the plant to meet strict state emissions guidelines by reducing nitrogen oxides (NOx). The project is said to be a critical part of Progress Energy Carolinas' ability to meet the growing needs of its Carolinas customers. Current plans call for the power plant to be in service in mid-2011.
