KBR wins clean-coal contract for China

By Gerald Ondrey |

KBR (Houston, Tex.; www.kbr.com) has been awarded a contract by Beijing Guoneng Yinghui Clean Energy Engineering Co. (Beijing Guoneng) to provide licensing, engineering services and proprietary equipment for the implementation of KBR’s and Southern Company’s Transport Integrated Gasification technology (TRIG) at a Dongguan IGCC Power Plant in Guandong Province, Peoples Republic of China. The contract award marks China as the site for the first worldwide commercial implementation of the TRIG technology with the goal of producing low-emission, coal-based electricity. The TRIG technology will enable Dongguan to tap into affordable, low rank coal reserves that would otherwise be uneconomic to develop. Once on stream, TRIG will help provide clean, reliable and affordable coal-based electricity for one of the most populous regions in the world. Work is expected to begin immediately. TRIG coal gasification technology was co-developed with the Southern Company and others and in conjunction with the U.S. Dept. of Energy (DOE). Dongguan IGCC Power Plant is the first phase of the total 920-MW Sun State IGCC Power Project developed by Beijing Guoneng. This phase of the IGCC Power Plant will generate 120 MW of electric power.…
