Project Description
This project requires the removal of Gas Boiler #3 and Gas Boiler #4. A new, owner provided, 850 psig 740 F boiler producing 175,000 lb/hr of superheated steam will be installed into the position currently held by Gas Boiler #4. The new boiler will be capable of firing natural gas and fuel oil. Demolition of the existing boilers will include removal of associated fuel oil skids, natural gas piping, steam piping, feed water piping and feedwater pump #4, flue gas economizer, forced draft fan, inlet air duct work, outlet duct work and and electrical and instrumentation and control wiring and panels. The existing boilers will be removed through an opening to be made in the power plant west wall. Structural steel modifications to the columns and support steel will be required for removal and installation of the new boiler. Installation of the new boiler will include steam tie in to the plant 850 psig steam header, installation of a new forced draft fan with variable frequency drive, supporting instrumentation and control installation, a new feedwater/flue gas economizer, a new boiler stack, and flue gas recirculation system. The building wall opening will be covered with a new roll up door to allow for future installation of additional gas boilers. Receipt and transportation of the boiler from a rail siding to be determined to Abbott Power Plant and installation into the plant is part of the contractor's responsibility. The contractor must include in their bid a construction bond for the boiler starting when the boiler is lifted off of the rail car through final accepted installation of the boiler at the power plant.
