Project > Installation of new auxiliary boilers for power plant

Xcel Energy. location. Colorado. cost. $150,000 (Barr's fees) completion date. 2016. When two of Cherokee Generating Station's coal-fired boilers were being retired and the two remaining units were designated for intermittent use, the facility needed a supplemental heat source, so Xcel Energy installed six new natural-gas-fired auxiliary boilers.

Natural Gas Fired Boilers

The boiler efficiency is usually reduced to 84-85%, when a coal fired boiler is converted to natural gas. The biggest change is due to the combustion of Hydrogen. This is normally a 4% heat loss while firing coal and about a 11% heat loss while firing natural gas. When firing natural gas, other losses such as dry gas loss, moisture in fuel and
