TRIG™ Project

Demonstration & Project Information

TRIG Demonstration Unit at Wilsonville, Alabama, USA

KBR and Southern Company developed TRIG™ and related systems for commercial implementation of power, chemicals and fuels applications in conjunction with the DOE at the Power Systems Development Facility (PSDF) in Wilsonville, Alabama, USA. The PSDF is an engineering-scale demonstration of TRIG™ and associated critical subsystems.

The operational experience gained by KBR and our partners at the demonstration unit is the basis of a planned, full-scale, commercial implementation of TRIG™ technology to produce 600 MWe power in Mississippi, USA. The IGCC project for Mississippi Power is based on lignite coal gasification and will employ two KBR TRIG™ gasifiers operating in air-blown mode to produce clean coal energy.
