Dehumidification is key for keeping a mothballed power station operationally ready while protecting it from corrosion or degradation during its temporary closure, says Carl Webb who worked with Andrews Sykes when Barking Power Ltd. temporarily closed one 500 MW unit…
The first gas turbine reconditioning workshop in Vietnam, and the first for Alstom's network in Asia, has been opened in the Phu My district under a joint-venture of the French OEM and Vietnam Electricity (EVN). The 22 million euros facility stretches…
Laser repair of gas turbine components is just a step away from becoming a wide-spread commercial reality. Repairs recently carried out at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) were achieved by laser cladding components in test turbines, with data…
Satellite capacity for global data operations is forecast to expand fivefold over the next five years, allowing power TSOs to accurately forecast intermittent renewable energy supply and fine-tune power grid operations accordingly. Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN), delivered via Inmarsat-4,…
Proton OnSite, leading developer of Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolysers, will deliver its technology to the first power to gas (P2G) project in the U.S. Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) will run the demonstration plant that will test the dynamics…
General Electric sees continued interest in HA gas turbines, having secured a total of 16 HA orders – one more than at the end of 2014. HA technology selections, deemed the first steps in developing a new power plant, increased…
To provide energy at well site, Siemens and Statoil have jointly developed and qualified a Subsea Hydraulic Power Unit (SHPU) for use in offshore oil and gas fields. The unit can replace hydraulic power transmission lines with local subsea hydraulic…
To fill the gap between its 40+MW aeroderivative LM6000s and 600+MW industrial gas turbines, GE has the LMS100. It takes the low pressure compressor designed for the Frame 6FA GT, runs the air through an intercooler, and then into a…
US-based PowerPHASE has developed TurboPHASE, a compressed-air system for boosting gas turbines that can deliver peak power output within a minute or so after pressing the 'start' button. An 80MW TurboPHASE on an 800MW 2x1 power plant can be installed system…
Air pollution has become a serious health issue in Beijing and beyond, so President Xi Jinping promised to curb China's carbon emissions from 2030. Coal gasification helps reach these climate goals – while allowing the energy-hungry nation to continue using…
