We Energies Oak Creek Power Plant units 5 and 6 were designed and built with no main steam temperature control mechanism. We Energies wanted to add desuperheaters to the units and do so in the simplest and most cost effective manner. Previous proposed solutions were deemed too expensive or potentially unreliable. The selected option from Alstom Power utilized the unique design elements of the boilers and offered up the temperature control required. The new desuperheater system has positively affected plant startup and normal operation of these boilers.
