Evoqua Water Technologies has been chosen to provide its Vantage® Series membrane-based boiler feedwater makeup system, as well as water screens and stop gates, for the new Holland Board of Public Works (BPW) combined cycle natural gas power plant.
The new ‘state of the art’ facility is being constructed on a partial brownfield site, known as the Holland Energy Park. The project will provide 145 megawatts of power to approximately 75 000 Western Michigan customers, generating significantly lower carbon emissions than the previous coal-fired plant. It is scheduled for substantial completion by the end of 2016.
Evoqua was selected to support this project with a boiler feedwater make-up system. The new system is based on a Vantage PTI pre-treatment packaged system paired with two Vantage series double pass M284 reverse osmosis systems. These systems have been specifically customised for the site. Effluent from the membrane system is polished using CDI-LX™ Continuous Deionisation Systems using Evoqua’s unique Ionpure® modules.
Rodney Aulick, President of Evoqua Industrial Projects and Services said, “Evoqua has a long history of providing equipment solutions that minimise both operating cost and a plant’s water footprint. We are excited to be a partner on this exciting and innovative project.”
The water screens and stop gates being provided by Evoqua were designed and built locally at Evoqua’s Holland location. The products will help prevent debris from Lake Macatawa from entering the power plant’s three water intake channels.
