Babcock & Wilcox’s (B&W) wet flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems feature a combination of design components to provide a high level of reliability and removal efficiencies. These include B&W’s signature tray tower design to provide excellent gas to liquid contact and uniform flow distribution through the absorber spray zones, its patented inlet awning, forced oxidation system, and advanced mist eliminators.
The project met engineering, fabrication and delivery objectives. The commissioned units met or exceeded performance guarantees. The project also earned the Best Coal-Fired Project Honorable Mention award at the 2006 POWER-GEN International Conference and Exhibition.
