NOx reduction in Indiana

Vectren Power Supply, a subsidiary of Vectren Corporation (Evansville, Indiana), has awarded Black & Veatch (Kansas City, Missouri) the engineering & construction contract for three selective catalytic reduction (SCR) unit additions at two different plants in Indiana. Construction of the first SCR unit at the Culley power station in New Burgh, Indiana, will be for the No. 3 265mw Unit with tie-ins scheduled for May 2002. The subsequent SCRs will be installed at their AB Brown power station in Mount Vernon, Indiana and construction will begin fall of 2002. These SCR units will reduce NOx emissions as mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Air Act Standards. The addition of SCRs and other emission reduction equipment is an expenditure that most base load power producers will need to deal with as the deadline of May 2004 approaches.
