Stanley Consultants Selected to Design University of Alaska Power Plant

The University of Alaska – Fairbanks has selected Stanley Consultants to design a new combined heat and power (CHP) plant. Stanley Consultants, a global consulting engineering firm, has been designing power plants for over 75 years.

A combined heat and power (CHP) plant can simultaneously produce electricity and heat from a single fuel source. The new University plant will use two circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) boilers to provide up to 280,000 pounds per hour of steam to heat both the Fairbanks Campus and produce up to 22 megawatts of electric power using a steam turbine. It will be located adjacent to the existing coal-fired Ben Atkinson Heat and Power Plant and work in conjunction with it, fueled by coal and have the ability to utilize up to 15 percent biomass. The efficient new boilers will result in a marked decrease in regulated emissions including a significant drop in particulates.
