INNOVATION IN POWER GENERATION
Fyn Power Station, Straw-Fired
The CHP plant at Fyn Power Station in Odense, Denmark, will burn 170,000
tons of straw annually, replacing about 100,000 tons of coal and reducing
CO2 emissions by about 245,000 tons per year. The 100-million euro plant
will generate 38 megawatts of electricity and 71 megajoules per second of
heat. The straw-fired plant is being constructed as a separate facility that can
operate independently of the other plants at Fyn Power Station.
The project was launched on the Autodesk platform by a previous company but
later switched to MicroStation by Vattenfall. The conversion provided for 3D
modeling in a homogeneous environment and the flexibility of editing 3D
models saved time. MicroStation, TriForma, and PlantSpace also produced
drawings and PDF plots that enhanced communications among suppliers
YORK Process Systems/JCI
Edwardsport, Indiana, United States
Duke Energy is building a cleaner-coal integrated gasification combined
cycle plant at its 160-megawatt Edwardsport Station in Knox County, Ind.
The 630-megawatt facility will emit less sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides,
and particulates than the plant it replaces while providing more than 10
times the power. YORK Process Systems is providing three 50 percent YORK
M centrifugal compressor refrigeration drivelines along with various heat
exchanger and vessel skids.
AutoPLANT Piping and Project Wise Navigator were deployed to improve the
overall engineering design cycle by imposing a design discipline that resulted
in more accurate drawings and bills of materials. The improved workflow
efficiencies enabled YORK to spend more time designing equipment, and
manufacturing benefited from the improved procurement that comes with
design accuracy, detail, and visualization.
