Westar Energy (Westar) upgraded its air quality control (AQC) systems at its Lawrence Energy Center Units 4 and 5 in Lawrence, Kansas, to continue to meet federal air quality standards. The complex retrofit project included the addition of pulse jet fabric filters for particulate control, scrubber and ductwork modifications, and electrical system upgrades for both units. Black & Veatch provided detailed design, engineering, procurement services and construction management for the project.
Black & Veatch’s core field execution team was familiar with Westar’s culture and expectations through prior Westar power generation project work. The team also brought decades of AQC innovation and expertise.
“We’ve been coming to Black & Veatch for 60 years.”
