During the period October 1, 2000 - December 31, 2000, Allegheny Energy Supply Co., LLC
(Allegheny) executed a Cooperative Agreement with the National Energy Technology
Laboratory to implement a major cofiring demonstration at the Willow Island Generating Station
Boiler #2. Willow Island Boiler #2 is a cyclone boiler. Allegheny also will demonstrate
separate injection cofiring at the Albright Generating Station Boiler #3, a tangentially fired boiler.
The Allegheny team includes Foster Wheeler as its primary subcontractor. Additional
subcontractors are Cofiring Alternatives and N.S. Harding and Associates.
This report summarizes the activities associated with the Designer Opportunity Fuel program,
and demonstrations at Willow Island and Albright Generating Stations. The second quarter of
the project involved completing the designs for each location. Further, geotechnical
investigations proceeded at each site. Preparations were made to perform demolition on two
small buildings at the Willow Island site. Fuels strategies were initiated for each site. Test
planning commenced for each site. A groundbreaking ceremony was held at the Willow Island
site on October 18, with Governor C. Underwood being the featured speaker.
Here’s what’s next.
