Improving Reliability & Economics of Gas Turbines in Asia with Dry Air Injection

In the interests of better utilizing the existing gas turbine resource base, RRT Sigma performed a study on gas turbines owned by Indonesia Power to evaluate options for incremental gas turbine power that can be applied to the existing fleet of gas turbine assets. 6 technologies were reviewed and compared at 9 different conditions. Technologies included in the study were: Evaporative Cooling, Fogging, Inlet Chilling, Wet Compression, Humid Air Injection and Dry Air Injection. The analysis concluded that Dry Air Injection was the most cost effective ($/kW) and had the least consequences for O&M. In addition Dry Air Injection had the least downtime, introduced no contaminants into the gas turbine, has the portability to relocate the system on any other or future gas turbines that might be installed. In the analysis, 5% incremental airflow was evaluated, but based on the margins available at the site; it is highly likely that additional performance can be achieved by exceeding the 5% flow threshold. 

European Energy Transition – Embracing the Opportunity of Change

An expert panel representing a broad spectrum of interest within the industry will be asked to share their vision as to how the market is likely to develop and bring some clarity to a sometimes opaque future for different types of power generation. The debate will look at the changing roles of centralised power and the growth of localised generation and the opportunities that will arise from this.

Panelists will be invited to speculate on how apparent policy conflicts between Brussels and EU member states are likely to be resolved, which technologies are most likely to prevail and how market players can best position themselves to lead and succeed in Europe’s energy future.
