Moffitt designed, supplied and installed a unique, automated ventilation system for this large Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plant in Edwardsport, Indiana. IGCC is a cutting-edge technology that turns coal into a synthesis gas (syngas) to improve the efficiency of the energy creation process. This process results in very high temperatures and requires a sophisticated ventilation system to keep it the optimal temperature.
Moffitt Mechanical supplied & installed a motor control center to operate the ventilation system in the steam turbine generator building. This system consisted of interlocking several different mechanisms, all supplied by Moffitt, such as wall louvers, roof fans and electric unit heaters. To ensure worker safety and a safe operating temperature for the power turbines all of these components must work as one.
The mechanisms are activated one of three ways: from a control box, automatic activation when the facility reaches a certain temperature or when the sensor in the gasification tower hits its limit. This helps keep the interior area properly ventilated in the safest and most efficient manner.
Moffitt Mechanical was able to install a complete ventilation system meeting all of the unique requirements of this facility.
