Project Tundra - Minnkota Power Cooperative
Milton R. Young Station
Technology Owner: FLUOR
About: Studying cost and design of CO2 capture at the Milton R. Young Power Station; Project will design a fully integrated post-combustion CO2 capture system, test a solvent on coal-derived flue gas, and conduct a techno-economic and front-end engineering and design (FEED) analysis of the system. In May 2020, FLUOR was awarded a FEED contract for the project at the coal-fired plant, which uses 4m t/y of lignite coal. One of the plant's two units will be retrofitted with FLUOR's proprietary amine-based, post-combustion carbon capture technology. Captured CO2 will be injected into saline formations or used for Enhanced Oil Recovery. Construction is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2021 at the earliest.
