Great River Energy awarded $11 million grant Today, the U.S. Department of Energy awarded Great River Energy an $11 million grant to help fund a large-scale coal-drying study at its Coal Creek Station power plant locat- ed in Underwood, ND. "We're very excited to receive the grant," said Charlie Bullinger, engi- neering leader at Coal Creek Station. "It will enable us to fund the second phase of the project designed to deter- mine if it's feasible to dry the quanti- ties of lignite required for sustained operation." The first phase of the project found that the plant's efficiency improved when low-moisture lignite was burned. North Dakota lignite averages 38 percent moisture content, which requires a drying process within the pulverizer system before entering the boiler. High moisture reduces boiler efficiency and increases corrosion on crucial equipment. The drying process developed for this research project was able to reduce the moisture con- tent by 25 percent. With increased efficiency, less fuel is consumed and fewer emissions are produced while the same amount of electricity is generated. "We were very pleased with these results and the potential for the lignite industry as a whole," Bullinger said. "There could be substantial new uses for North Dakota lignite in out of state markets, because drying lignite in this manner makes the coal more compet- itive."
