DEMONSTRATION Unit in Wilsonville, Alabama = Unproven Technology
June 26, 2011 1 Comment
The public is told by a Mississippi Public Service
Commissioner that this Lignite Coal Gasification
Process is proven, solid, even guaranteed technology.
However there is much to be learned from a scale
model to be built in China in 2012. The new Kemper
power plant will be paid for in advance by Mississippi
citizens no matter the cost no matter the risk.
It is being built as you read this.
Demonstration & Project Information
TRIG Demonstration Unit at Wilsonville, Alabama, USA
KBR and Southern Company developed TRIG™ and related systems for commercial implementation of power, chemicals and fuels applications in conjunction with the DOE at the Power Systems Development Facility (PSDF) in Wilsonville, Alabama, USA. The PSDF is an engineering-scale demonstration of TRIG™ and associated critical subsystems.
The operational experience gained by KBR and our partners at the demonstration unit is the basis of a planned, full-scale, commercial implementation of TRIG™ technology to produce 600 MWe power in Mississippi, USA. The IGCC project for Mississippi Power is based on lignite coal gasification and will employ two KBR TRIG™ gasifiers operating in air-blown mode to produce clean coal energy.
