Projects

Primesouth assists utility and power generation facilities all over with services that help meet their plant's requirements for startup, operations and maintenance. With years of proven experience, we provide the highest quality and most reliable services possible. Explore some of Primesouth's previous projects:


Gas Turbine Fuel Systems Conversion- Myanmar

Primesouth’s team has been contracted by the EPC firm to upgrade the combustion system to operate on low BTU fuel for one relocated MW701D Gas Turbine. Primesouth team designed, upgraded and will commission the new modified fuel systems in May of 2014.


Pinelands Biomass- Allendale and Dorchester Counties, SC

Primesouth provided EDF Renewables with construction management support, professional management services and craft and trades support staff for the construction of the Pinelands Biomass.

  • Two nominal 17.8 MW generating facilities located in Allendale and Dorchester Counties in South Carolina
  • The two projects will interconnect to Santee Cooper's transmission system adjacent to the sites with the generated renewable energy contracted to the utility under 30-year Power Purchase Agreements
  • The projects use a well proven biomass design with a stoker boiler, supplied by Factory Sales Engineering (FSE) and a steam turbine generator supplied by General Electric (GE)
  • Bibb Engineers is the engineer of record and Summit Industrial Construction is the general contractor

Allendale and Dorchester Counties have substantial and reliable wood supply. The Pinelands project will bring significant economic benefits to both counties by contracting with the existing trucking and wood supply industry and creating new jobs.


     
Dell Power Plant – Dell, AR        

Allegany Station – Filmore, NY

Primesouth took over the operations and maintenance for Rochester Gas & Electric's Allegany Station. The plant is a 62-megawatt (MW) combined cycle, which utilizes the following equipment:

  • General Electric LM6000 Gas Turbine (185-143 PA SAC)
  • General Electric Steam Turbine
  • Deltak Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG)
  • Mitsubishi Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)
  • Bailey Infi-net 90 Distributive Control System (DCS)

Originally designed as a cogeneration facility with an adjacent greenhouse, the Allegany Station had all interconnections except for a water supply line (from the station to greenhouse) severed.

Primesouth helped increase Allegany Station's Value Weight Availability (VWA) from 97.2 percent to 100 percent and continues to meet customer expectations on the project.
