Power's on! Design-and-build company builds coke storage and processing facility

A power plant contracts a company to design and build a turnkey bulk material storage and processing facility to handle petroleum coke.

Billings Generation Inc. [BGI], Billings, Mont., operates a 54-megawatt power plant in Big Sky Country that burns petroleum coke in its two fluid-bed boilers to produce electricity. Because the company's original petroleum coke supplier wasn't able to continue supplying the amount needed, BGI contracted a new supplier to supplement the shortfall. However, the new supplier's petroleum coke was processed differently, and BGI wasn't able to use the coke as delivered because it contained too much moisture and its particles were too large.
