Virtual Coal Plant Tour
CIPCO has partnered with MidAmerican Energy Company in three generation facilities located in Iowa. The Walter Scott Jr. Energy Center Unit #4, located near Council Bluffs, began production in the summer of 2007. This facility, which was named “Plant of the Year” by Power magazine, is the first coal-fired power plant in the country to employ supercritical technology. Supercritical technology allows boiler and turbine equipment to operate at extremely high temperatures and pressures using less coal, thereby increasing energy output resulting in higher efficiency and fewer emissions.
