Abstract : This study is to develop a cost-effective and technically practical modernization program for the steam/power plants at the Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP) while meeting the intent of the Army energy goals of reduced dependence on oil and natural gas. The recommended modernization approach is to provide new coal-fired boilers complete with required auxiliary equipment in an addition to Building 515. One existing oil-fired boiler in Building 515 will be converted to burn coal. This approach will satisfy facility steam requirements from peacetime through mobilization demands. Upon completion of construction the remaining boilers in Building 115 and 515 will be abandoned in-place. Total expenditures required to complete this modernization program are $59 million in FY 1982 dollars or $69 million in actual dollars. Funding allocations are anticipated for FY 1985 through FY 1989.
