Services GE will provide to Conectiv’s Delta plant include: system engineering, equipment fabrication, installation supervision and startup for three CEM (continuous emissions monitoring) systems and DAH (data acquisition and handling) systems; monitoring of NOx, CO, NH3 and O2; collection and archiving of data for environmental reporting; preparation of Conectiv’s reports required under federal and state emission regulations and assembly of accessories building and installation of power distribution and cable management systems for DCS and UPS equipment
The Delta plant features combustion turbines which can run on natural gas or low sulfur diesel fuel oil. The hot exhaust from these gas turbines is used to power the steam turbines. This fuel-efficient system consumes 20-30% less fuel than traditional fossil-fired boiler/steam turbine generator plants, and emits almost non-detectable levels of volatile organic emissions and carbon monoxide. These comparatively low levels are maintained with the use of low NOx burners, water injection, selective catalytic reduction and premium fuels.
David Divito, product line leader for GE Energy Services said: “The Delta combined-cycle plant is a great example of Conectiv’s innovation and commitment to doing business in a way that’s environmentally responsible. We’re thrilled to be able to help with this exciting project.”
