Wisconsin Public Service Corp. Announces Coal Plant Upgrade

Wisconsin Public Service Corp. is adding the environmental controls at its Weston 3 coal-fired power plant, and received approval to build the project at a cost of $275 million. The utility is deploying a new kind of pollution control technology that has been used at coal plants in Japan but not the United States. The project is needed to help WPS comply with terms of a settlement it reached with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to reduce sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide pollution from its coal plants. After the project was approved, the utility increased the size of the system to enable it to collect more pollutants. The project also incurred additional engineering, design and fabrication costs.
