L’Energia Power Plant

Beacon Piping provided piping construction services for an existing nominal 80MW combined cycle facility in Lowell, MA which had been out of service for several years. The project involved removing the existing Siemens unit to accept a new Rolls Royce Trent 60 Combustion Turbine. This required new gas compressors and related equipment and piping to meet the 800 psig fuel inlet pressure requirement. The installation also included a completely new closed loop cooling system. To take pressure off the jobsite and to compress the piping installations scheduled, the majority of the piping was modeled on AutoCAD and prefabricated at our Canton, MA facility.
