LNG Canada Selects URS as Main Information Contractor for LNG Project

URS Corporation received a contract from LNG Canada to serve as the main information contractor for its proposed project to build a liquefied natural gas, or LNG, export facility in Kitimat, British Columbia. Under the contract, URS' scope of work will be to configure, implement, and support an integrated engineering environment that enables the project to create and share information through a central, globally accessible platform. This represents a dynamic shift in how the industry leverages technology to gain efficiencies and improve the quality of information. URS is under contract for the project's front-end engineering design phase and will work closely with LNG Canada's main contractor, CFSW LNG Constructors, a joint venture with affiliates of Chiyoda Corporation, Foster Wheeler AG, Saipem S.p.A, and WorleyParsons Ltd.

URS Corporation Offers Solution to Improve Energy Efficiency and Reduce Carbon Emissions in Coal-Fired Power Plants

URS Corporation has developed a novel approach to improve the energy efficiency of coal-fired power plants by 1 to 3%, with a corresponding reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. The new process, based on SBS Injection technology, enables power plants to realize significant operational cost savings by burning less coal. It also results in less coal combustion residual wastes and lower air pollution emissions. The SBS technology injects sorbent into the combustion system, removing SO3 prior to the selective catalytic reduction system and/or air preheater. It improves plant operational performance and reliability, enhancing the capture and removal of mercury while helping the plant to meet stringent sulfuric acid emission limits. By eliminating sulfuric acid and other compounds from the flue gas, which lead to fouling and corrosion of air preheater equipment in the power plant, the performance and efficiency of the equipment can be dramatically improved. Working with a supplier of air preheaters for the power industry, long-term testing of the SBS technology has successfully shown recovery of thermal energy from combustion gases down to temperatures as low as 220°F, corresponding to an improvement in overall plant efficiency of up to 3% or approximately a 300 Btu/MW-hr. heat rate reduction. To achieve maximum efficiency gains, most plants will require relatively simple modifications to the air preheater. This new development is good for the power industry and the environment, stated Sterling Gray, URS Business Development Manager. It offers a reasonable and cost-effective way to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change, without adversely affecting U.S. electricity prices or the economy. The company offers a full range of program management; planning, design and engineering; systems engineering and technical assistance; construction and construction management; operations and maintenance; management and operations; information technology; and decommissioning and closure services.
