Description - This is an energy project that replaces the existing two Back Pressure Steam Turbines (BPST) which are over 50 years old with new more efficient BPSTs. The results will be increased electric production while decreasing the associated steam production. Project costs compared to estimated savings show less than 5.5 year payback.
Electric generation will increase 19,5000,000 kwhs annually
The new turbines decrease steam losses by 35,000,000 pounds annually
Annual GHG reduction is estimated at 10,800 MTCO
The annual energy savings in 2013 dollars is about $1.7 million
