Power Plant to Install GE Mobile Water Treatment During Planned Outage
General Electric will commission a reverse osmosis (RO) mobile water filtration system at the Golden Valley Electric Association (GVEA) coal-fired power plant in Healy, Alaska. The GE system will provide the plant with clean water during a planned outage to upgrade the plantâ€™s water treatment system and environmental controls and facilitate the start up of Unit 2.
The total power output of the facility once Unit 2 is online will be 80 MW. The two-unit station is located approximately 300 miles south of the Arctic Circle.
The GVEA Healy plant will require GEâ€™s mobile water filtration system for approximately 90 days while work is being completed.
The mobile water treatment system includes a state-of-the-art trailer containing various filter vessels and a 100 gallon-per-minute RO unit. The product water from the RO system will be further purified by ion-exchange tanks to attain the quality necessary for boiler feedwater at the plant.
To minimize replacement of the ion-exchange tanks, the RO system was upgraded to include an internal product water recycling system.
Covantaâ€™s Delaware Valley energy-from-waste facility in Chester, Pennsylvania, saved 1.3 million gallons a day from local water supplies after installing GEâ€™s RePAK water reuse technology in the power plantâ€™s cooling tower.
