The Tennessee Valley Authority said July 16 that it has posted new video of the Gallatin emission controls construction project to its social media platforms.
TVA is investing $1.1bn to add the clean-air controls to the coal-fired Gallatin Fossil Plant near Nashville, Tenn. The project is now about 32% complete and is scheduled to be fully operational by the end of 2017. The new equipment is expected to reduce sulfur emissions by 95% and nitrogen emissions by 85%-93%.
Gallatin has four coal-fired units with a total summer net capability of 976 MW. The plant consumes about 12,350 tons of coal a day. TVA is installing selective catalytic reduction systems to reduce NOx emissions and scrubbers to reduce SO2 emissions on all four Gallatin coal units.
