GE Signs Contract with Southern Company

General Electric (GE) has been contracted to provide Masoneilan LincolnLog and SteamForm modulating steam control valves and auxiliary systems to Southern Company’s power plant in Kemper County, Miss. The 582-megawatt Integrated Combined Cycle (IGCC), owned and operated by Mississippi Power, will employ a high-efficiency process that uses lignite coal to generate electricity. The coal is converted to syngas which is used to fuel gas turbine-generators that drive downstream steam turbine-generators.
