STEP Demo March 2020—Construction Countdown

The first set of equipment has been delivered to the STEP Demo 10 MWe supercritical CO2 pilot power plant site on SwRI’s campus in San Antonio, TX.

The facility is on track for equipment installation and occupancy later this May.

Elements of the heater (upper and lower left)—the only one in the world made of advanced high-temperature materials—and cooling tower have been delivered. Fabrication is well underway for the turbine (below), compressor, recuperators, and other major components.​
