This report presents a methodology for calculating capital costs for a brownfield IGCC as a retrofit option for PC plants, relative to the greenfield cost. A 153 $/kW capital cost reduction was estimated for a repower IGCC compared to a greenfield facility, which compared well with other cited cost saving estimates.
