Longview Power, LLC, owner of the state-of-the-art power generation facility currently under construction in Maidsville, WV, has selected Siemens to conduct a study analysing the applicability of post-combustion carbon dioxide capture technology. The Longview Power project includes a new 695 MW (net) advanced supercritical pulverised coal power plant equipped with Siemens’ advanced air pollution control equipment. The study will include process design activities focused on the potential application of Siemens’ amino acid salt post-combustion capture process. As Siemens provided the air quality control system (AQCS) it believes it is well placed to optimise the existing AQCS to accommodate the capture technology.
