Each of these projects showcases Dynalectric’s proficiency in power distribution planning, electrical system design, and overall electrical construction.

Producing approximately 47,000 Megawatts of power nation-wide, NRG Energy, Inc. has relied on the Dynalectric Company to locally support their electrical systems, preventive maintenance services, as well as plant upgrade projects since 1993.  Some of the major upgrade projects are listed below.

Chalk Point Generating Station is a four-unit coal and oil-fired facility located in Aquasco, Maryland.  Our projects include the relocation of Mirant’s machine shop to this facility, a Urea System (this project received a Washington Building Congress Award), a Unit 2 ammonia injection system, the relocation of major underground duct banks in preparation for a wet scrubber installation, and major renewal of the coal yard’s electrical infrastructure.

Dickerson Generating Station is a three-unit coal-fired generating facility located in Montgomery County, Maryland.  Our projects include the renewing of desuperheat sprays, installation of CO monitors, conversion of auxiliary boiler feed pumps into a Foxboro DSC control system, replacement of secondary air damper operations, and upgraded master fuel trip, and the relocation of major conduit and wiring in preparation for a new wet scrubber system.

Morgantown Generating System is a two-unit coal-fired facility located in Charles County, Maryland.  Dynalectric projects include a Unit 1 SCR electrical installation, Unit 1 pulverizer upgrades, the replacement of Unit 1 exciter, a Urea plant, pre-outage work for the Unit 2 SCR pulverizer, and exciter upgrades.

Potomac River Generating Station is a five-unit coal-fired generating facility located on the northern end of Alexandria, Virginia.  Dynalectric projects include converting the controls of units 3, 4, and 5 to a modern DCS system (this project was a Washington Building Congress award winner), an innovative “Trona” injection system, the upgrade of the screen well house, and a stack “merge” project which included the replacement of ID fans and their controls with an entirely new emission monitoring system.
