Senior Engineer 1996 to 2006

As the corporations only senior mechanical engineer, I recommended SCR, scrubber, burner, pulverizer, airheater, sootblower, turbine, cooling tower and maintenance strategies along with supervision for improved performance and availability. Led a test crew to provide vital test information to improve heat rate, availability and provide contract acceptance testing.
Recommended and supervised performance testing, operation and maintenance on various plant equipment to improve plant availability and performance.
Commissioned Cross Unit #1 boiler (620 MW) with Foster Wheeler.
Commissioned and performed annual tuning on Cross Unit #1 and Unit #2 SCR's to achieve design RMS on outlet NOx.
Tested and developed scrubber and boiler performance strategies to burn 2.5% S coal.
Tuned Cross Unit #1 boiler to reduce/eliminate popcorn ash pluggage in the SCR.
Tuned Cross Unit #2 (CE 600 MW) boiler to eliminate a reheat temperature imbalance.
Performed Steam Path Audits with GE and correlated results to turbine test data.
Performed acceptance tests on five General Electric and one Westinghouse/Siemens turbine upgrades that provided a 10% improvement in output, heat rate and improved reliability.
Provided acceptance tests on two new cooling towers and three-refurbished/repacked cooling towers.
Troubleshot operational problems that effect unit heat rate and availability, such as turbine internal leakage and feedwater heater pass-partition plate leakage.
Work very well (based on feedback) with supervision of test technicians, calibration laboratory technicians, stack testing crew, operations staff, upper level management and vendors/contractors.
Testified before the Federal EPA, the Department of Justice, the Southeast regional EPA and the South Carolina Department of Environmental Control regarding air pollution issues with a very favorable outcome.
