Completed and Cancelled Projects

Central Power Plant Feed Water System Deaerator Upgrade

Overview

This project will replace two 1940’s deaerators with two modem deaerators meeting current industry standards. Each deaerator weighs approximately 140,000 pounds when filled, measuring 18 feet in diameter and 20 feet in length. An existing decommissioned boiler will be removed, including abatement of lead and asbestos, to provide space for the new system. The new equipment will yield higher-quality water and increase boiler system efficiency, reliability, life expectancy, and redundancy. It will also result in reduced boiler corrosion, component failure, and maintenance.
