Edgewater Generating Station, Sheboygan, Wisconsin
Working on a small patch of land bordered on one side by Lake Michigan and on the other three by the small city of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, the team tasked with the installation of a state-of-the-art air quality control system on Unit 5 of Alliant Energy's Edgewater Generating Station faced, and overcame, unique challenges.

Gallatin Fossil Plant, Gallatin, Tennessee
It may not be the newest plant in the Tennessee Valley Authority fleet, but the Gallatin Fossil Plant has been retrofitted with some of the latest technology available to the coal power industry. It's got new dry scrubbers, a lined landfill, an innovative haul road, and more changes on the way. The improvements are designed to keep the facility in service for another 20 years.

Rihand Super Thermal Power Station, Rihand Nagar, Uttar Pradesh, India
India's ever-increasing need for electricity means coal will continue to be a large part of its power generation, and the Rihand facility is at the forefront of expanding capacity while improving its efficiency, lowering emissions, and serving its surrounding community.

Nabha Power Limited, Rajpura, Punjab, India
Given the opportunity to help India's breadbasket alleviate a chronic power shortage, a major engineering, construction, and manufacturing firm built its first 1,400-MW coal-fired power plant in just 54 months. Today, the plant is one of India's most efficient and best performing coal plants, and well deserving of a POWER Top Plant award.
