Sibley SCR Installation
Installation of a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of a 420 MW boiler at the 524 MW Sibley Generating Station located on the Missouri River about 20 miles east of Kansas City. This was a very complex project that involved the fabrication and installation of 1,400 tons of steel in a very confined area of an operating power plant with limited lay-down and pre-assembly space. Close coordination with both the plant team and the Babcock Power team was critical in making the project successful.
NAES Power Contractors supplied site management, craft labor and all subcontracts for the project. NAES Power Contractors developed and implemented a unique constructability plan that called for the Babcock Power/NAES Power Contractors site team to closely coordinate material arrivals, component and pre-assembly fabrication on the ground, and then the final placement of components (some weighing up to 140,000 pounds) utilizing a 600 ton Demag crane.
- Received, fabricated and installed all SCR material and equipment including: structural steel, ductwork expansion joints, SCR reactor, and SCR catalyst
- Developed and implemented a construction plan for the project’s unique requirements
