Sibley Boiler Ventilation Plant Improvement Project - Sibley, Missouri
Kiewit was selected by Kansas City Power & Light to provide engineering and design assistance to replace the existing boiler ventilation fans, dampers and associated electrical components of the Sibley Generation Station Boiler Building--a coal-fired facility. Four ventilation fans were added around the boiler envelope on levels 2 and 3 to more effectively cool the boiler and associated equipment. The east wall of the boiler/turbine building will be cut to add additional intake openings and motorized dampners to aid in proper ventilation of the building.
The building is an existing F-1-type building housing a coal-fired boiler capable of producing 2.6 million lb/hr of steam. The resulting degradation of the boiler insulation increased the heat generation within the building and made the operating temperatures unsafe for workers.
