E3 has provided expertise to more than 50 solid fuel projects, with project sizes ranging from 18 MW to greater than 2,000 MW. E3 has also provided expertise to more than 160 gas-fired power projects. Our team members have worked on a variety of gas-fired power generation technologies over the years, which includes vast heat recovery steam generation experience, and experience with steam turbine generators including several models provided by General Electric, Alstom, Mitsubishi, Siemens, and Westinghouse among others.
With regard to solid fuels, E3's experience encompasses technologies such as conventional pulverized coal, stoker boilers, bubbling bed, and fluidized bed combustion. Our team members have worked on a variety of technologies over the years, including Combustion Engineering, Energy Products of Idaho (EPI), Asea Brown Boveri, Alstom, Kvaerner, Tampella, Combustion Engineering, Babcock and Wilcox, and Foster Wheeler boilers used to combust coal, waste coal, petroleum coke, and biomass.
For all these projects, E3's experience encompasses the entire project life cycle, including the development, pre-financing, financing, construction, performance testing and operations and maintenance phases.
R.D. Morrow Generating Plant: E3 was engaged to provide a due diligence review of the pollution control upgrades to the South Mississippi Electric Power Association's R. D. Morrow Generating Plant. The 400 MW, pulverized coal-fired, electric generating plant was considering pollution control upgrades to enable it to meet future emissions limits along with other facilities that were located in Lamar County, Mississippi. The IE report was issued in connection with the $345 million permanent financing loan for the Project and the Rural Utilities Service Lien Machine Process for lien accommodation.
Plum Point Energy Station: E3 served as the independent engineer for the financing of the Plum Point Energy Station, a 665 MW net coal-fired power station located roughly 40 miles north of Memphis Tennessee. The station burns Powder River Basin (PRB) sub bituminous pulverized coal and contains full emission controls to meet environmental standards. E3 undertook a limited technical due diligence review of the station on behalf of prospective investors. E3 was also retained to provide independent engineering services for East Texas Electric Cooperative's 50 MW portion of Plum Point Energy Station as part of the Rural Utilities Service's Lien Machine accommodation.
