This coastal powerplant relies on salt water intake for process cooling via heat exchangers.
The intake filtration system could not handle the large volumes of seaweed and waterborne debris. A SPIROGUARD® CS Channel Screen and SPIROTAINER® were installed to automatically screen and contain the seawater solids. This project was unusual in that the SPIROTAINER was fabricated of 316SS. This system has been in operation since 2002.
