Cliffside Steam Station coal plant storage tanksWe’ve been at the CoalGen conference and tradeshow in Charlotte, NC, this week. Fisher
provides field erected welded steel storage tanks, FGD tanks and specialty vessels like silos, absorbers or scrubbers for coal-fired power plants. Coal remains a major part of our energy infrastructure here in the US, and the CoalGen conference is a key industry event covering topics related to the design, development, operation, maintenance and upgrading of coal fueled power plants.

The CoalGen event includes four days of conference and preconference sessions and professional development opportunities, a tradeshow, and a rare opportunity for a technical tour of Duke Energy’s Cliffside Station (where Fisher’s built a few tanks!). Exhibitors represent a multitude of products and services for coal plants – including but not limited to coal puliverizers. coatings systems, vacuum pumps, engineering, EPC services, lighting and cables, specialty metals, water treatment, safety suppliers, emissions control systems, logistics companies and - you guessed it - tanks.

The Keynote session included speakers from both the power generation sector and major leaders in the design and construction of power plants and power plant upgrades. Conference sessions include topics like Clean Coal Technologies, The Evolving Coal Plant, Carbon Capture and Sequestration, and many more.

We’ve had opportunities to talk with experts in all aspects of coal fueled power plants and wanted to share some info about just a few of the folks we talked to during the CoalGen show.
