Engineering design, procurement and construction management services were provided to Bechtel Construction for a fuel handling system for a 49 MW, coal ﬁred cogeneration power plant. Work included the design of a truck dump to receive 27-ton capacity, highway trucks with tandem trailers.
The dump is ﬁtted with two vibrating reclaim feeders, and discharge to an en-masse type conveyor which transports the coal to a silo ﬁll bucket elevator. A rotary drum type magnetic separator located at the discharge of the en-masse conveyor removes tramp iron from the as-received coal. The silo feed elevator discharges directly to a 3,000-ton capacity concrete coal storage silo providing approximately 4.5 days fuel supply.
