Cancellation. This handbook, Steam Power Plants - Fossil Fueled, does not
cancel or supersede any existing design handbooks.
Policy. Power plants shall be provided when a crucial need exists which
cannot be satisfied economically or reliably with purchased power. When a power plant

and operate; that is, the lowest overall life cycle costs for ownership, operation,
