Gebr. Pfeiffer hydrators ordered by ANDRITZ Inc. aid in meeting EPA Requirements in a flue gas desulphurization system for OG&E´s Sooner Power Plant

Pembroke Pines, Florida – July 2015 - In 2014, Oklahoma Gas & Electric Corp. (OG&E) - which serves over 810,000 electric consumers in Oklahoma and Arkansas - began implementing a $1.1 billion capital improvements plan to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) clean air mandates at some of its power plants. As a result, two Circulating Dry Scrubbers for air pollution control will be added to the coal-fired units at OG&E’s Sooner Power Plant located near Red Rock, Oklahoma. The lime hydrating units for the ANDRITZ scrubbers will be supplied by Gebr. Pfeiffer.
