The need for power plants to operate at maximum efficiency and flexibility while cutting emissions is greater than ever before. What follows is a guide to how the manufacturers of filtration, pump, and turbine technologies are rising to this challenge.
In a constantly evolving electricity market, factors such as over capacity and low coal costs can push electricity prices down, so power generators need to reduce their production costs.
Capital expenditure (CAPEX) is essentially fixed, but there are opportunities to reduce OPEX, by for example, increasing efficiency and flexibility, reducing maintenance costs and the use of consumables, and ensuring regulatory compliance at optimal cost.
DNV KEMA offers a wide range of OPEX reduction services, many of which are outlined in this Editorial Guide.
