Dan River Steam Station – Combined Cycle Blow Down Pumping
A large Power Company replaced the Dan River Steam Station with a new gas fired power plant and needed a new pump station to handle medium flows of blow down water from the heat recovery steam generator. The Flygt pumps specified for this system were stainless steel and suitable for corrosive and very hot water conditions that are typical with blow down systems. The design also called for all of the discharge piping to be designed and supplied with stainless steel. Liquid level sensing was supplied with NOLTA floats designed for corrosive and hot water environments. The pump station controller was supplied as an Allen Bradley PLC configured for a duplex pumping system.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
Brown & Morrison, a Xylem pump rep, contacted Romtec Utilities about this project for a new blow down pump station at the old Dan River Steam Station. Brown & Morrison was originally contacted by HDR for pump pricing and connected them to Romtec Utilities for the pump station design. HDR, Inc. provided the preliminary design criteria for its blow down system, and Romtec Utilities provided a satisfactory design and quote for its project. Working together with the owner, Romtec Utilities and HDR developed an approved design for this power generating station. Romtec Utilities provided full start-up and training services for this station to the power company staff in North Carolina.
