Lipten to Upgrade 32 MW Generation Facility

Lipten is performing a design-build upgrade of the boilers at the Covanta Plymouth, PA facility. The facility processes approximately 1,216 tons per day of municipal solid waste– generating more than 32 megawatts of renewable energy.

The facility has two boilers, each with three auxiliary oil fired burners. Lipten is replacing the existing burners with new ones capable of firing natural gas or oil. The work also includes a custom PLC based control system. The site installation and startup will be completed within a very short shutdown duration. “This project allows Lipten to showcase the power of the EPC approach to provide superior coordination of site activities” said Jim Marshall, president of Lipten, “With our engineering and construction teams working together in the months leading up to the shutdown, the site work will be well planned and executed.”
