Optimization and Upgrades
In today’s environment, both the cost and quality of fuel can frequently shift.
Savvy asset managers actively monitor and manage this new reality. Fuel quality and composition variations can significantly influence emissions and combustor dynamics and thus affect equipment operations and reliability.
EthosEnergy designs systems that provide operational flexibility to select gas, oil, dual, blended or alternative fuels.
Fuel & Auxiliary System Retrofits
Fuel costs can account for upwards of 75 percent of the operating budget of a power plant. Even small changes in fuel cost can have a significant impact on the bottom line. Accurate measurement of fuel consumption is critical to maintaining plant profitability.
Often, when a turbine is being modified or upgraded, the fuel system must be significantly changed or replaced entirely. These changes may be instituted in an effort to modernize existing equipment, to reduce operations and maintenance costs, or improve reliability.
Flow measurement installations include the measurement of oil, natural gas, water and steam. These systems provide essential data for custody transfer, environmental reporting and turbine performance tuning. Pre-treatment systems condition the fuel by removing undesirable liquids and particulates from the fuel and provide heating as required. This allows for a cleaner burn to extend the life of the hardware and reduces emissions.
