Middletown Energy Center – HRSG Water Treatment Pump Station
Construction of a new combined cycle power plant in Middletown, OH required 3 pump stations for the operation of its HRSG system. Middletown Energy Center uses natural gas and HRSG to generate power, this process requires significant amounts of water for operation. Water used in this process gets super-heated and becomes corrosive. If the water is not treated it can damage components throughout the system. Romtec Utilities designed this water treatment pump station to handle these harsh conditions while collecting and discharging untreated water into the on-site treatment facility. To meet the low flow requirements and provide redundancy, Goulds 1/2 hp submersible pumps were engineered in a duplex configuration. Additionally, the system’s electrical controls comprise a logic relay controller and a NEMA 4x enclosure adjacent to the wet well.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
Gemma Power first contacted Romtec Utilities to request a quote on its private bid project for these pump stations. We previously provided several power gen pump stations for Gemma Power facilities prior to this and won the job. The three pump stations installed are used for crucial onsite facilities needed in the HRSG process. We worked alongside Gemma Power throughout the project on the design and construction of the pump stations. Once installation was complete Romtec Utilities sent a field technician to commission the system and provide onsite training for owners and operating personnel.
