New understanding of the fuel-air mixing profile in gas turbines is set to allow future power plant designs with lower NOx emissions, Wessam Estefanos, researcher at the University of Cincinnati told Gas to Power Journal.
Gas power plants not only generate electricity – they also need to consume it to function safely. At SPE’s Boufarik site in Algeria, Benning installed uninterruptible power supply units on a DC system to ensure continuous functionality of the plant’s…
Flexible gas power is vital for a decentralized and increasingly renewable-driven energy future, according to Manuel Aguilera, gas product manager at Himoinsa. “If we consider all the technology available, not only engines, but turbines, fuel cells, etc. – all of…
Air compressors, with enhanced airends, can significantly reduce operational costs on gas turbines. “In essence, the 13% efficiency improvement will generate a 13% energy cost saving for our customers,” said Ingersol Rand’s contact cooled product manager, Jens van den Sande.
Affordable, efficient power storage has been singled out at the World Economic Forum as the Holy Grail in the transition to a low-carbon energy system. With the many new technologies in the pipeline, storage costs of electricity are estimated to…
In just 4 month, PowerPhase has installed an advanced upgrade on a 7FA Gas Turbine in the Middle East. The system demonstrated as high as 99.3% availability in ambient conditions up to 55ºC, while boosting output by almost 32 MW,…
FuelCell Energy has been certified for its renewable hydrogen generation solution using fuel cells at waste-water treatment facilities under the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS), administered by the California Air Resources Board. Tri-generation plants are now eligible to tradable LCFS…
Research and development underway by Italian manufacturer Ansaldo Energia is set to deliver next generation turbine products with higher power output and greater flexibility, Daniela Gentile chief technology officer at Ansaldo told Gas to Power Journal.
Lakeland Electric, the third largest public power utility in Florida, says it saved $12 million in fiscal 2015, or about 17% of its annual fuel costs, at unit 3 of its McIntosh power station by making use of GE’s FuelSolv…
Drew Gilpin Faust, the president of Harvard University, in 2008 committed her institution to a 30% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2016. Adding a 8 MW gas-fired cogeneration plant, designed by Burns & McDonnel, to the 110-year-old Blackstone…
