Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center
The Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center (VCHEC) is a coal-fired power station and its circulating fluidized bed (CFB) unit uses coal, waste coal and biomass for its fuel.
VCHEC’s advanced CFB technology enables the use of a mixture of fuels, which are typically locally sourced.
Fly ash and bottom ash are collected dry from the power station and moved by truck to the onsite Curley Hollow CCR landfill. The landfill has a synthetic liner and leachate collection/treatment systems.
