Water is an essential component to the operation of power generation facilities. Xylem is your partner in water management keeping your coal-powered plant running efficiently and safely without disruption.
Coal-fired power plants boil water to create steam that is used to generate electricity in the power plant. Like all thermoelectric power systems, coal plants require cooling systems to cool the steam once this process is complete and to control pollution from the plant.
The water used in the process can be freshwater or seawater depending on the source and process needs. Seawater places different requirements on the pumps due to the salt content, so solutions specially designed for seawater duty are a must.
Xylem´s portfolio provides a suite of products and services relevant to the coal power industry including coal ash management. Our market-leading products and services are backed by extensive systems knowledge and engineering capabilities, delivered by our nationwide team of experts.
