Western Coal Conversion and Other Upgrades at Erickson Station for Lansing Board of Water & Light Move into Final Installation Phase
February 28, 2004 - Lansing Board of Water & Light took the 159-MW Erickson Station off-line this month for a scheduled routine maintenance outage that will also include a conversion to western coal. The conversion will significantly reduce NOx emissions to help meet tough new federal regulations that take effect in 2004. In addition to converting from eastern to Power River Basin coal, overfire air capability is being installed to further reduce NOx emissions. Sargent & Lundy has been working with Lansing Board of Water & Light throughout the project, first in evaluating the options to accomplish the goal of determining the most cost effective NOx reduction alternative and then providing project engineering, scheduling, and construction management. This final phase of the work is intended to be completed during the current 9-week outage. The installation is not only the biggest pollution control project for the facility, it is also the biggest project for the single unit Erickson Station since it first went into service in 1973.

Tampa Electric's 1750-MW Bayside Repowering Project Earns Project of the Year Recognition
January 4, 2004 - Tampa Electric's Bayside Station repowering was recently recognized with a PennWell Project of the Year award presented at Power-Gen International. The project, engineered by Sargent & Lundy, transformed the 1200-MW coal-fired Gannon Station into the 1750-MW gas-fired Bayside Station. Bayside integrates 7 new CTs and 7 HRSGs with 2 of the existing steam turbines. This repowering will reduce the station's NOX and SO2 emissions by more than 97% each and particulate emissions by more than 88% by 2005 from 1998 levels while increasing station capacity by 550 MW. Throughout the 2½-year construction phase, the original six units remained on-line providing 1200 MW of coal-fired generation.
