HOUSTON, Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- POWER magazine today officially announced winners of its 2016 Top Plants in the gas-fired generation category. This year's winners are sited in very different locations, climates, and political and economic environments around the world. They deploy diverse state-of-the-art technologies to address both unique and global challenges.
Attaqa Power Plant, Suez City, Egypt
Egypt faces multiple infrastructure and population growth challenges, which makes adding new generation quickly a high priority. This fast-track project was built in record time by a completely domestic workforce and is helping to relieve chronic power shortages.
Cane Run Generating Station Unit 7, Louisville, Kentucky
Kentucky has traditionally been coal country, but by replacing an older coal-fired plant with the state's first combined cycle plant, customers continue to get affordable power while enjoying cleaner air.
Chivasso Combined Cycle Power Plant, Turin, Italy
Bad timing and changing markets led to the mothballing of this combined cycle plant. A combination of hardware upgrades and cloud-based analytics gave it a second chance.
ETHYDCO Power Plant, Alexandria, Egypt
This industrial power plant—developed to ensure affordable, reliable power in an environmentally challenging location—includes custom natural gas filtration and compression and still met its expedited delivery schedule.
Linden Generating Station, Linden, New Jersey
This two-time Top Plants Award winner demonstrates that industry-leading plants never rest on their laurels. Upgraded hardware and software, plus data monitoring and analytics capabilities, are keeping this plant competitive in the PJM market.
Valley Power Plant, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Coal-to-gas conversions are nothing new, but at this plant, which is also the sole source of steam to numerous critical customers, ensuring a timely and seamless transition was essential.
