KBR on Tuesday was awarded a contract by Kentucky Utilities, a subsidiary of PPL Corp., to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for the installation of air emissions control systems in Ghent, Kentucky.

The project is part of Kentucky Utilities’ investment plan to install environmental upgrades to reduce air emissions across its generating fleet, including an approximate $600 million investment for the addition of air emissions controls at its Ghent plant.
 
KBR will lead the installation of Particulate Matter Control Systems on all four units under an EPC contract valued at approximately 80% of Kentucky Utilities’ investment at the Ghent plant, according to the company.

Each system includes a pulse-jet fabric filter to capture particulate matter, a Powdered Activated Carbon injection system to capture mercury and a lime injection system to protect the pulse-jet fabric filter from the corrosive effects of sulfuric acid mist.

“KBR is pleased to be selected by Kentucky Utilities to be part of its essential effort to reduce air emissions,” said Jim Stewart, president of KBR Power & Industrial.

“KBR is committed to delivering safe and quality projects to our clients and we welcome this opportunity to deliver this important project for Kentucky Utilities and its Ghent Facility.”
