Construction is complete on a building to house a next-generation electric power pilot plant enabled by supercritical CO2 technology. Component manufacturing and equipment installation is progressing quickly, and start-up is slated for 2022 to illustrate the performance of this high-efficiency power cycle over a range of operating conditions. The facility is located on SwRI's campus in San Antonio, Texas.
Efficient & versatile
This first-of-a-kind pilot power plant will demonstrate how sCO2 technology produces electricity in a more cost effective and efficient way with smaller turbo-machinery and lower emissions.
This open project is welcoming new partners from around the world. OEMs, engineering companies, and power plant owner/operators are invited to join to gain a better understanding of how sCO2 technology can improve high-efficiency power generation.
