Veolia to provide water systems for Pennsylvania power plant

Kiewit Power Constructors Co has selected Veolia Water Technologies Inc to engineer and procure the raw and demineralized water treatment systems for Hickory Run Energy’s new Hickory Run natural gas combined-cycle power plant.

The 1000 MW combined-cycle natural gas facility, located in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, is currently under construction with a commercial operation date of April 2020.

Hickory Run’s 5000 gpm raw water treatment system will incorporate Veolia’s proprietary Actiflo high-rate clarification, Hydrotech Discfilter and AnoxKaldnes Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) technologies. The feedwater to the plant will be effluent from the local public owned treatment works and will be used as plant cooling water and boiler feedwater after demineralization.
