UNC Replacement Boiler

Distribution and Infrastructure

The University of North Carolina operates two (2) 250,000 pounds per hour Circulating Fluidized Bed boilers permitted to burn coal, biomass, natural gas, and number 2 oil. The primary fuel is Eastern Bituminous Coal. Limestone is added in the combustion chamber of each boiler to control SOx emissions, and baghouses collect particulate downstream of the boilers. Because of new environmental laws that were taking place, additional systems needed to be added to the operating system to meet the new requirements and pass UNC and SCO standards.

WB Moore was chosen to complete this project because of the vast experience they have with Power Plants and other like facilities. The scope of work that was included for us on this project was install Power distribution additions, including adding breakers to existing panels, Furnish and install light fixtures per drawings, Grounding as shown and described, wiring per cable installation schedule, Cable tray as indicated to be supported by our hangers attached to structural members, and Firestopping of conduits as necessary.
