Weston 4 Power Plant
As a sub-tiered engineer/consultant to one of the project’s general contractors, Clark Dietz provided the HVAC and secondary electrical systems design for the remodel of the facility’s existing office and the new control and operations building (dark building shown in foreground of picture). The five-story building houses the main control and operations functions of the plant including maintenance, labs, storage, simulator, training, and general operations offices.
- 280,000+ feet of pipe
- 2.3 million feet of pulled cable
- 23,000 boiler pressure welds
- 73,000 yards of concrete
- Wisconsin Public Service Corp’s 530-MW Weston 4 wins the “clean coal technology” trifecta by using low-sulfur subbituminous Powder River Basin coal, state-of- the-art air quality control systems, and supercritical combustion technology
- The project included a critical path milestone incorporating a plant distributed control system (DCS) that provided operators with hands-on experience before the plant went on-line. Simulated operations training can increase the plant’s reliability upon start-up
