Project Synopsis

Develop a preliminary purchased equipment cost estimate for a unique biomass-to-power electrical generation plant with a given configuration and size. 

Project Summary

BIOMASS TO POWER FACILITY PRELIMINARY EQUIPMENT COST ESTIMATE DEVELOPMENT

The client is a technology provider who specializes in advanced gasification technology.  Process Engineering Associates, LLC (PROCESS) had previously completed a preliminary process design for a unique biomass-to-power facility and was contracted during this project to develop a preliminary purchased equipment cost estimate for a plant with a given configuration and size.  The design included approximately 20 major unit operations. PROCESS developed equipment purchase costs for the more unique equipment by working with qualified equipment manufacturers to obtain purchase cost quotations.  PROCESS utilized it's in-house library of purchase equipment costs for the more common unit operations associated with the facility.  Once the purchase equipment costs were finalized, PROCESS summarized the total cost for the client and recommended an installed equipment factor for a plant of this type for their use in developing a preliminary capital cost estimate.
