Power Plant Upgrades

Power Plant Upgrades

The continuing evolution of environmental regulations means that the emission systems of many older coal-fired power plants are no longer up to par with new standards. Completely replacing your plant’s emission systems to achieve compliance can be an extremely expensive and time-consuming process. An effective alternate solution is to upgrade those systems.

Utilizing a large range of environmental technologies, Nol-Tec Systems’ Lodge Cottrell division can provide power plant upgrades to meet even the most stringent emissions legislation. We can supply everything from individual components to complete turnkey systems and partnering packages.


Customized Emission Systems Solutions

With the growing need to burn a mixed range of coals in coal-fired power plants, together with revised boiler operations and new emission systems compliance standards, many existing precipitator installations require upgrades or the addition of precipitator capacity.

Lodge Cottrell’s power plant upgrades have been designed for our customer’s plants, but with only minor variations these can be applied to the precipitator(s) in any existing coal-fired power plant.

Nol-Tec has the necessary resources, experience, and technology to engineer and execute complex power plant upgrades. Our extensive R&D and testing facilities enable us to develop effective solutions for even the largest coal-fired power plants.

Contact Nol-Tec Systems today to discuss emission systems upgrades for your plant.
