Digitalisation is fundamentally changing the way how maintenance is conducted. In remote support services, Wärtsilä's customers receive real-time advice and support for their assets, while analysing big data can help optimise power plant performance and predict maintenance needs well in…
Material experts at MTU Aero Engines and their partners have jointly developed an intermetallic high-temperature materials for highly stressed engine components. Titanium aluminide (TiAl) – a new lightweight material for turbine blades – combines the advantages of metallic and ceramic…
Building a free and prosperous country out of the ruins is another is not an overnight affair. For Libya, infrastructure suffered from decades of neglect and mismanagement, in addition to recent wartime damage. "There had been a lack of investment…
Many people wish they still had the strength and stamina they had in their twenties. With plant equipment the decline sets in much sooner. To recapture the lost MW, La Paloma Generating Company (LPGC) looked at upgrading turbine components, but…
Connecticut-based FuelCell Energy has announced it made "significant progress" towards commercial deployment of its solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), naming three projects selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for funding support. Validating the hydrogen production through the SOFCs in…
The German TSO TenneT has certified a plant of Audi AG that converts surplus wind power into natural gas to helps stabilize the power grid. The 6 MW unit has been assessed as 'fit' to sell access capacity to TSOs…
Together with ITP, Rolls-Royce will work on a €43 million research programme to test Intermediate Pressure (IP) turbine technologies that will go into its future engine design, UltraFan. Available for service from 2025, UltraFan is meant to offer 25% improvement…
Condensing water from combustion byproducts to reduce the need for water in power plants – the development of this transformational technology, carried out by researchers from Stony Brook University, has received $2.5 million from U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Advanced…
Having spent $100 million to build a new test centre just outside Berlin, Siemens engineers are now further optimising the combustion process of gas turbines and check how they can best handle various fuel types. "We don't sell green bananas…
Both horizontal and vertical heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) have their own specific advantages, which makes it important for power plant operators to choose the best HRSG for their facility based on the circumstances appropriate for each type, Pascal Fontaine,…
