Power company Constellation Energy awarded a contract to Poole and Kent Corp., an Emcor Group Inc. subsidiary, to install process piping systems at the Brandon Shores Power Plant in Baltimore, Md.
Poole and Kent's work will involve the installation of more than 75 piping systems associated with the construction of a new air quality scrubber system. The flue gas desulfurization (FGD) process equipment, also called wet scrubbers, will help control air pollution. The carbon steel, fiberglass, rubber-lined, and stainless steel piping to be installed throughout the new facility by Poole and Kent includes, in part, power plant air, control air, oxidation air, makeup water, hydrocyclone and mist eliminator systems.
"We are pleased to be a part of this highly complex and environmentally focused upgrade to the Brandon Shores facility and are proud to be working on a project that will help maintain a safe, eco-friendly environment," says Adam Snavely, president and CEO of Baltimore-based Poole and Kent Corp. "Constellation Energy expects that this three-year upgrade project will result in a 95 percent reduction in the sulfur dioxide emissions at its Brandon Shores plant."
