Design and Engineering Work for NPPD’s Sheldon Station Conversion Is Underway

The wheels are turning on Nebraska Public Power District’s Sheldon Station conversion project that would eliminate coal as a fuel source in one of its generating units and utilize hydrogen derived from a separate manufacturing process to generate electricity.

At the October NPPD Board of Directors meeting two agreements were approved - one to develop a preliminary boiler design and a second to assist NPPD with other engineering work required for the conversion of Sheldon Station Unit 2 boiler to burn hydrogen. Hydrogen is a by-product of the process used by Monolith Materials in manufacturing Carbon Black. Construction work on the Monolith facility, located south of Sheldon Station near Hallam, is underway.
