McDermott Technology, Inc., Alliance, Ohio, will team with Babcock & Wilcox Co., Barberton, Ohio, and Allegheny Energy Supply, Masontown, Pennsylvania, to design a new type of coal-burning furnace that will combine the best, high-performance features of boilers from both the United States and Europe. From furnaces commonly used in U.S. power plants, the engineers will adapt a design in which the steam-carrying boiler tubes are oriented vertically -- a simpler, less costly, and easier-to-fabricate design than the spiral tube furnaces common in European power plants.
Foster Wheeler Development Corp., Livingston, New Jersey, will design and test a key module that will be capable of fully gasifying some fuels or operating as a partial gasifier to produce a char for advanced combustion processes. This capability will give engineers the flexibility to tailor a Vision 21 plant to process a wide variety of different fuels. Proposed DOE award: $2.29 million; private cost share: approximately $570,000.
