AN ORDINANCE APPROVING PROFESSIONAL SERVICE AGREEMENT WITH WOOD GROUP USA, INC. IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $59,500.00 FOR ENGINEERING STUDY TO EVALUATE THE PROSPECT OF CONVERTING DALLMAN’S UNIT 4 TO AN ENTIRELY NATURAL GAS OPERATION, FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIES
This is a new ordinance for an engineering study to evaluate the prospect of converting Dallman’s Unit 4 to an entirely natural gas operation. This ordinance approves and authorizes the execution of a Professional Services agreement with Wood Group USA, Inc. (“Wood Group”) in an amount not to exceed $59,500.00. Wood Group will provide professional engineering services to study and determine the prospect of converting Unit 4 to an entirely natural gas operation. Wood Group (formerly Foster Wheeler), is the OEM for the Unit 4 boiler. Currently, Unit 4 requires natural gas to start the Unit and then switches over to coal to generate power. A fuel conversion to natural gas can significantly impact a boiler's operating and control range, as well as auxiliary equipment such as fans, air heaters, spray stations, etc. To evaluate this impact, a boiler performance analysis is needed. Wood Group will determine the requirements and limitations of converting the Unit 4 boiler to all natural gas fuel, including estimations in performance at four load ranges, including minimum, 50%, 75%, and 100% maximum continuous ratings, and estimate the emissions at the maximum continuous rating, and equipment and metallurgy evaluations. The study is expected to be completed within eight weeks. Wood Group is not a local vendor.
