A Collaboration to Power Successful Projects

Efficient, high-quality EPC delivery results in savings for Empire District

Conversion of a simple cycle gas-fired generating unit to combined cycle gave The Empire District Electric Company (Empire) a low-cost, high-efficiency addition to its generation portfolio while enabling the company to meet new stringent environmental regulations for air and water quality. Burns & McDonnell, in collaboration with partner AZCO Inc., served as EPC contractor to convert the existing 143-megawatt (MW) combustion turbine to a one-on-one combined cycle unit.

Following the upgrade, completed under budget and a month ahead of schedule, the nominal net electric output increased to 255 MW — resulting in annualized savings of more than $1 million for Empire. Download our case study to learn more.
