HRSG for U.S. Combined Cycle Power Plant

Aug. 09, 2001

  KeySpan Energy Corporation, the largest natural gas utility in the northeastern U.S., recently ordered a heat recovery steam generator(HRSG) from Kawasaki for a combined cycle power plant (CCPP) to be built in Long Island City, New York. Kawasaki will also supply duct burners, SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) equipment and carbon monoxide (CO) catalysts for the plant, due to go online in mid-2003. The HRSG enables the recovery of waste heat from gas turbines, using it to generate steam that is then supplied to steam turbines in power plants.
  CCPPs are coming into favor as energy consumption continues to rise, chosen for their low environmental impact and high power-generating efficiency. This has led to increased demand for highly efficient HRSGs that can be delivered with short lead times.
  Kawasaki's HRSG expertise and engineering performance has been globally recognized. We have delivered over 40 HRSG units around the world, including four units for one of the largest CCPPs, run by Dabhol Power Co. in India, which is owned by Enron, General Electric and Bechtel. We won our first North American contract in March, for two units to be delivered to a CCPP being built in Arizona.
  Kawasaki's HRSG marketing efforts have been bolstered by the recent contracts for these projects.
