CPV St. Charles Combined Cycle Project

Integrating into existing city infrastructure for a project that seamlessly fits into the community

  • White Plains, Maryland

    White Plains, Maryland

The CPV St. Charles Project is based on wet cooling via a surface condenser and mechanical draft cooling tower

This project was designed to integrate into existing infrastructure, while not disturbing current operations. To do this, the owner will directly purchase the gas turbines, steam turbine, HRSGs, condenser, DCS, CEMs and steam bypass valves as part of an extended power island scope from General Electric. The makeup water source for the cooling tower is effluent from the Mattawoman Waste Water Treatment facility via a new 13-mile pipeline.

Each gas turbine will be single fuel capable of firing pipeline quality natural gas or liquefied natural gas (LNG). A metering and regulation station and a one-mile long gas pipeline is being installed from the gas source location, and each gas turbine will feature dry low NOx combustors. Finally, each HRSG will feature selective catalytic reduction (SCRs) and CO/VOC Catalysts to reduce the GT exhaust emissions.

For this project, we are providing owner’s engineer services to CPV, coordinating the overall integration of the engineering and design of the EPC Contractor, CTG, STG and HRSG suppliers and the offsite contractors installing the reclaim water, fuel gas, potable water and sewer pipelines. We review the key drawings and documents from each of these contractors, and comments are resolved with the applicable contractor. To ensure the project runs smoothly, we participate in the monthly and weekly project meetings with CPV and the contractors, and one of our talented engineers is assigned to the site to assist the CPV construction management team. The result? A project that fits right into the community without disturbing it.
