PFBC Environmental Energy Technology (PFBC-EET) marshals all the resources it takes to put the world’s cleanest, greenest fuel-flexible power generation technology on line. And we’ve attracted alliance partners with worldwide reputations for application engineering and project support:
Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery, AB
For nearly 150 years, Siemens has been a force for innovation, constantly responding to the energy industry’s evolving needs. Today, Siemens is one of the world’s leading specialists in the development, production, and supply of components and systems for industrial and commercial plants. Via Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB, (part of the Industrial applications Division of the Siemens Power Generation Group) PFBC-EET holds a distribution agreement to market and sell the unique Siemens PFBC gas turbine technology.
Farnham and Pfile Engineering, Inc.
Farnham and Pfile is a recognized leader in the design, construction, and repair of coal processing plants, offering total turnkey capabilities in engineering, procurement, and erection. Farnham and Pfile is the subcontractor installing the PFBC-EET Process Test Facility at the CONSOL Energy R&D campus in South Park, Pa.
CONSOL Energy Research and Development
CONSOL Energy, Inc., is the largest producer of bituminous coal in the U.S. and a recognized innovator in emissions control and green-power technology. CONSOL Energy’s R&D division provides engineering, technical, and operations support for the PFBC-EET Process Test Facility at CONSOL Energy R&D.
As the world’s leading independent supplier of heat recovery steam generators designed to operate behind gas turbines, Nooter/Eriksen backs its engineering expertise with a global network of fabrication partners. Nooter/Eriksen will design and fabricate high-quality, environmentally compatible pressure vessels and combustors under a supply agreement with PFBC-EET.
U.S. Department of Energy
Working with CONSOL Energy, DOE is helping design the PFBC-EET Process Test Facility. Under a cooperative R & D agreement, DOE is supporting PFBC-EET in building its computerized Fuel Impact Model™, which will enable PFBC-EET to determine final commercial plant design parameters.
Pennsylvania State University
The Penn State Energy Institute is a center of expertise in the design and operation of coal gasification and combustion pilot facilities. Penn State engineers, including Energy Institute associate director Bruce Miller, supply the PFBC-EET Process Test Facility with technical assistance.
