Clean Coal Projects

Shaw’s clean coal projects feature modern technologies, allowing clients to burn coal and opportunity fuels efficiently. Our air quality control experience ranges from installing scrubber systems on single coal-fired units to executing fleetwide retrofit programs, helping power producers provide cleaner energy for many years to come.

Brunner Island Retrofit Project

Shaw installed flue gas desulfurization systems at the PPL Brunner Island power plant, helping to remove up to 97 percent of incoming sulfur dioxide at the plant. It was featured as one of POWER magazine’s top generation stations in October 2010.

Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center

Near St. Paul, Va., Shaw is providing design and engineering, procurement and construction services for Dominion Virginia Power’s new, 585-MW clean coal-fired generating plant. The Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center will be one of the cleanest coal plants of its kind, capable of burning a diverse mix of fuels.
