Maryland Heights
Location: MO
Operator: Ameren Missouri
Configuration: 4 X 5 MW Mercury 50 gas turbines
Operation: 2012
Fuel: landfill gas
T/G supplier: Solar
EPC: H R Green Co, Haberberger Inc
Quick Facts: This is one of a relatively small number of Mercury 50 recuperated turbine power stations using LFG. The 38.5% efficient turbine was developed under a US DOE R&D program and has been available for commercial service in 2003. These machines were slected for this urban project becasue of their low-Nox emissions profile and production capability. Extensive gas pretreament is required for the source fuel and this and other operating requirements take 16-18% of power output.
