POWER Engineers was Black Hills’ engineer for the construction of the Valencia peaking station. The project involved the installation of a GE 7FA gas-fired combustion turbine. The turbine is equipped with inlet chilling to enhance efficiency during periods of high ambient temperature.
POWER’s engineering scope included full and detailed AE design for the installation. The Valencia project also involved design and programming of a Foxboro DCS plant control system.
An award for excellence was received from Black Hills Energy for this project.
