E.ON Power Plant - NOx Reduction

Fluor provided engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for three units at the 2,000-MW Ghent Power Station to reduce NOx emissions substantially, using a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. The work was performed in the middle of an existing 30-year-old plant in full operation and required innovative techniques to overcome the unique challenges and potential hazards. Installation of this SCR system enabled Kentucky Utilities to meet Federal emissions requirements in the most cost-effective manner.

  • All project major milestones were met ahead of the planned schedule.
  • Earned Certificate of Recognition from Kentucky Labor Cabinet for attaining over 1 million work hours without a lost-time incident. Actual work hours accomplished without a lost-time incident exceeded 1.45 million.
  • SCRs were completed well below the Alliance Target Cost.

The project received Fluor's Hugh Coble Project Excellence Award in 2004. The award is based on outstanding performance in several areas; including safety, value creation, and Client and community relations.
