Emerson Supplies First Ultra-Supercritical Power Plant Built in the U.S.

The John W. Turk Jr. Power Plant in Fulton, AR, went into commercial operation Dec. 20, 2012, just four months after its first fire – several months faster than is typical for a new coal plant. The plant uses advanced control and simulation technologies from Emerson Process Management.

The 600-MW plant is the first ultra-supercritical power plant built in the U.S. By operating at elevated steam temperatures and pressures and utilizing state-of-the-art emissions control technology, ultra-supercritical power plants can boost the efficiency of coal-based electricity generation by more than 50% while maintaining superior environmental performance. Emerson has significant experience automating large ultra-supercritical and supercritical power generating facilities, having been selected to automate more than 60% of such units in China.
