Babcock & Wilcox’s ultra-supercritical boiler, built under the direction of Brandy Johnson, vice president of new build utility and environmental, and Albert Bennett, technical consultant, at the John W. Turk Jr. Power Plant can withstand extremely high pressure and temperatures. It enables the plant to operate at a net efficiency of better than 39 percent. As a result, the plant uses less fuel than standard coal-fired boilers and releases 17 percent fewer CO2 emissions.
