Kings Mountain Energy Center – HRSG Blowdown Pumping

Project Assets

Project Description

A new HRSG system required 3 industrial pump stations to provide water for its processes. This HRSG blowdown pump station needed to handle extreme pumping conditions. The pumps were engineered outside the wet well in a vertical configuration to prevent damage from exposure to hot, caustic water created in the HRSG blowdown process. This system uses Goulds 7.5 hp pumps in a duplex configuration to meet the high pumping rate required to handle the blowdown water. In the wet well, Nolta floats are the primary level-sensing equipment, and a pressure transducer is used to provide redundancy and to monitor the temperature in the well.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities

Gemma Power, the owner, engineer, and contractor for the Kings Mountain power plant construction contacted Romtec Utilities to request a quote for a private bid. Having experience working with Gemma Power on previous projects, we provided a quote with our pump station designs and won the job. This project also ran parallel to another HRSG project for Gemma at their Middletown Energy Center. Working together, Romtec Utilities provided designs and pricing for this and several other systems, giving Gemma Power a single partner for all its HRSG pumping systems. After installation, Romtec Utilities sent an onsite technician to commission the system and provide training for operations personnel.
