RMSS-AWMA – Lunch Meeting – Wednesday, October 24th

Loading Events

Please join AWMA for their next lunch meeting, where you will hear from Terry Nelson, Senior Manager – Generation Construction at Tri-State Generation and Transmission. His team is typically charged with the construction of new generation facility and large capital construction retrofits for Tri-State.  The Craig Station Unit 2 SCR Project was Tri-State’s technical solution to the regional haze regulatory proceeding that culminated in 2010.  During the regulatory proceeding, Colorado’s Air Quality Control Commission amended the State Implementation Plan which defined the required NOx emission limit on Craig 2 NOx (0.08 lb/MMBtu, 30 DRA), thereby requiring selective catalytic reduction (SCR). The Colorado Assembly and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 8, based in Denver, approved Colorado’s decision in 2011 and 2012, respectively. The effectiveness date of EPA’s approval was January 30, 2013 (77 Fed. Reg. 76781).  Colorado had a unique requirement for Tri-State to submit a compliance schedule.  Following BART guidelines, Tri-State indicated compliance five years from effectiveness (i.e., January 30, 2018). The project was also featured in Power Magazine in August: https://www.powermag.com/extensive-planning-innovative-work-strategies-teamwork-combine-for-successful-scr-project/

The meeting will be held at Tri-State Generation and Transmission, located at 1100 W. 116th Ave. in Westminster, on Wednesday, October 24th. They will start with refreshments and networking at 11:30, followed by the presentation around noon, and they’ll adjourn around 1pm.

If you plan to attend this meeting, please RSVP to Bethany Moffat (bmoffat@tristategt.org) by 10 AM on Tuesday, October 23rd.
