Geothermal energy breakthrough reported by Iceland researchers more effective harnessing of geothermal energy has been achieved by a research team working in Krafla, northeast Iceland, as part of the Icelandic Deep Drilling Project. It all began in 2009 when a borehole succeeded in tapping into magma at only 2100 metres depth, with a temperatures of up to 1,000°C. The borehole, IDDP-1, was the first in a series of wells being drilled by the IDDP in Iceland in the search for high-temperature geothermal resources, reports WIP. Wilfred Elders, Professor Emeritus of Geology at the University of California, Riverside, USA, comments: "Drilling into magma is a very rare occurrence anywhere in the world and this is only the second known instance, the first one, in 2007, being in Hawaii. The IDDP, in cooperation with Iceland's National Power Company, the operator of the Krafla geothermal power plant, decided to investigate the hole further and bear part of the substantial costs involved." He explains: "In the future, the success of this drilling and research project could lead to a revolution in the energy efficiency of high-temperature geothermal areas worldwide. Several important milestones were achieved in this project.” The IDDP team found they were able to drill down into molten magma and control it by setting a steel casing into the bottom of the shaft allowing superheated, high-pressure steam for months to blow through at temperatures exceeding 450°C. This well proved to be the hottest in the world, setting a record for geothermal heat. Subsequently, it was discovered that steam from the IDDP-1 well could be channelled directly in a practical way into the existing power plant at Krafla thus proving that a high-enthalpy geothermal system could be viable. Currently, enhanced or engineered geothermal systems are being created internationally by pumping cold water into hot dry rocks at 4-5 kilometres depths. The heated water is pumped up again as hot water or steam from production wells. If you can tap into a magma reserves a system can be made to be even more efficent, the IDDP results suggest. The IDDP is a project and consortium of the National Energy Authority of Iceland (Orkustofnun) and four of Iceland's leading energy companies - namely: Hitaveita Krafla power plant Sudurnesja (HS), Landsvirkjun, [left] can now tap Orkuveita Reykjavíkur and directly into the Mannvit Engineering. The heat from liquid consortium is referred to as magma. 'Deep Vision'. The IDDP consortium believes that producing steam from a reservoir hotter than 450°C (840°F) — and at a proposed rate of around 0.67 cubic metres per second (24 cu ft/s) - should be sufficient to generate around 45 MW.










In brief... ABB wins US$55m power order for Dudgeon Windfarm ABB has won an order worth around $55 million to supply a submarine AC power cable system for a new wind farm, located off the coast of Norfolk. The underwater cables will feed the electricity generated by the 400MW Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm into the UK national grid. The order was received from Dudgeon Offshore Wind Limited, a company owned by Statoil and Statkraft.

Duddons Sands starts producing power The West of Duddon Sands windfarm development, 8 miles off Cumbria's coast, has revealed it will ultimately feature 108 turbines. About a third are built and four are ready for use. When fully operational the site will generate up to 389 MW, powering 280,000 homes. The wind farm is the fourth to be built off Barrow and could create up to 60 jobs. The development is being built by Scottish Power Renewables and Danish firm, Dong Energy.

Cruachan Hydro capacity to ‘double’ The output of the Cruachan hydro electric power station in Argyll could more than doubleunder plans revealed by Scottish Power. The company is to carry out a two-year feasibility study before deciding whether to go ahead with the project. Its rival, SSE, has already announced plans for the Coire Glas hydro electricity scheme in Lochaber, Scotland, says a new report.


WWII bunker is now green energy power plant Energy and utilities company Hamburg Energie has joined forces with IBA Hamburg to transform a former WWII anti-aircraft flak bunker into a green energy power plant in Germany. The Hamburg-based ‘Energy Bunker’ has already begun producing energy for the local community, but once running at full capacity will provide up to 3,000 homes with heating, and another 1,000 homes with electricity. Originally constructed in 1943 to serve as an antiaircraft bunker, complete with gun turrets, the 42m (137 ft) high building also sheltered local people from Allied bombing raids during WWII. Though postwar attempts were made to demolish the building after 1945, blowing up its massively thick walls was deemed too dangerous to nearby buildings. Much of the interior was subsequently demolished and the bunker remained in a neglected state for over 60 years. Plans to transform the building into a green energy hub first arose in 2006, with the renovation commencing in 2011. The total cost of the project

came to €26.7 million (roughly US$36.5 million) and was funded by both the the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Hamburg Climate Protection Concept.The Energy Bunker is outfitted with several sustainable technologies. The main feature is a 2 million litre (528,000 US gallon) water reservoir which acts as a large heat store and plugs into the existing Reiherstieg district heating network. The reservoir itself is heated by several methods: a biomass power plant and wood chip burning unit which feed into a large boiler, a solar thermal array installed on the roof of the bunker, and waste heat produced by a nearby industrial plant. A large photovoltaic system is installed on the southfacing facade of the building to produce electricity, and the wood chip burning unit is also used to produce electricity. A peak-load boiler and large battery array ensure that the energy output is kept steady at all times.

First Solar will build, commission and operate the power plant, and offer the output to customers, including key municipal utilities, electric co-operatives, and commercial and industrial users. The project, located in West Texas, will have access to one of the best solar resource areas in the state and can provide electricity to more heavily populated areas with greater peak energy demand.

AREVA and GAMESA in offshore windfarm joint venture AREVA and GAMESA announced the entry into exclusive negotiations to create a 50/50 joint-venture company in the field of offshore wind power. The offshore market represents one of the most promising areas for the development of renewable energies, particularly in the coastal countries of northern Europe, where the installed base should reach over 25 GW by 2020, and in Asia. By joining forces, AREVA and GAMESA feel this will will enable the Joint Venture to become one of the leading players in the global offshore wind market says a spokesman for the JV.


CHP/District Heating Event in London - May 22nd The fourth of GMP’s unique one day Conference shows – The CHP/District Heating Conference & Networking Event - will be held on 22nd May, 2014, at Prince Philip House, London. The last 2013 Conference attracted in excess of 200 key industry professionals from UK & Europe to listen to a variety of speakers, as well as key representatives from 25 of the leading original equipment manufacturers. Industry expert and head of the Claverton Energy Group, Dave Andrews, commented: “It is gradually dawning on experts that the key issue in the UK today is how to heat buildings both economically & efficiently. This can only be done realistically with CHP and District Heating technology.” He tells WIP: “This is a vitally important issue which opens up a huge market for independent power generation focused on at least 20 million homes. In total,

this involves a capital investment of £12 billion+ from 2014 onwards.” Call for Papers This is an official Call for Papers for the Conference, to be held on May 22nd 2014 at Prince Philip House, London. Potential speakers are invited to submit abstracts of 250 words (max) to be submitted for peer review by Thursday March 6th, 2014. The Conference theme looks at the CHP and District Heating sectors, as well as the Future of UK/European Energy & Power for European Homes & Industry. The one day event will be free to all Conf. attendees. For Exhibitors taking a stand at one event

costs just £2,100 and to exhibit at two events will cost £3,600 (£1,800 each). UKPN Editor Aidan Turnbull comments: “Britain is facing the rising risk of an energy shortfall within three years, Ofgem has warned. Spare capacity in the UK could easily plunge from current historic high levels of 14% to as low as 4% in 2015/16.” Energy4Powerlive-4 Another leading exhibition event for this year is the new Energy4Powerlive Show also held by GMP. This will comprise a total of four unique Conferences & Tabletop Stand Exhibition areas (including an Outdoor exhibition space) located under one roof. This will be held on the 5th November, 2014, at the prestigious Queen Elizabeth ll Conference Centre, London. Details are available on the GMP website at:

Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics required 1,000MW load Running the 22nd Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, has taken up a lot of power. The estimated load required was 1,000 MW, double Sochi’s typical daily load, and a supply which fed a host of new thermal power plants and other smaller localised power sources. Because grid stability was a significant issue, Parker Hannifin’s Power Conversion System (PCS) was installed to manage power fluctuations and help to prevent outages throughout the course of the Games. Working in partnership with EnerDel, a leader in utilityscale lithium-ion battery energy storage systems, Parker Hannifin’s Energy Grid Tie Division supplied one of its highly efficient and compact PCS solutions as part of a 1.5 megawatt, 2.5 MW-hour installation connecting large banks of battery energy storage to the grid. The unit has been specially designed to smooth out fluctuations and aid the supply of backup power for the local substations supporting the Games. The system included Parker’s precision cooling units which increased the throughput of high power electronics by up to 40%. Parker also provided other ancillary equipment, such as outdoor battery enclosures, climate control, fire suppression and monitoring systems.



Key plans for new 27MW renewable energy power plant for City of Los Angeles

In brief... HHI & SIDEM SIGN KUWAIT POWER DEAL Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and Sidem, a subsidiary of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, have announced the signing of a US$1.4 billion EPC contract with SHAMAL AZZOUR AL-OULA to build the first phase of the Az-Zour North Independent Water and Power Project (IWPP) in Kuwait.

Forth Energy to proceed with biomass CHP plant for Rosyth Forth Energy, a joint venture between Forth Ports Ltd. and SSE plc, has announced that the Scottish government has granted consent for a wood-fuelled renewable combinedheat-and-power plant at the Port of Rosyth. The CHP plant would use sustainably sourced wood fuel primarily from overseas with the capacity to generate 120MW of low carbon renewable electricity and 30 MW of heat. The equivalent of over 40% of the Fife Council area’s electricity needs could be met, with the additional benefit of the potential for a heat distribution network. The plant would represent a capital investment of £325 million (US$538.66 million). It would create approximately 300 construction jobs, peaking at 500 during parts of the build process; then around 70 operational jobs, running the plant and handling the fuel. It is projected that it will deliver around £26m in annual economic benefits to the area. The plant would demonstrate significant carbon savings over its operating life compared with fossil fuel alternatives. The wood fuel for the plant would be sourced from overseas and delivered by ship, the lowest carbon means of transportation for bulk goods. The plant’s location within the Port of Rosyth would allow the fuel to be discharged directly to the plant. Forth Energy has said it will now engage with the relevant authorities, including the Scottish Government and Fife Council, to examine the details of the consent granted. “We are delighted that the Scottish Government has approved our proposal for a renewable energy plant at Rosyth. We look forward to engaging with the Scottish Government, Fife Council and the local community,” said Calum Wilson, Managing Director of Forth Energy. The plant would represent a capital investment of £325m. The project will create approximately 300 construction jobs, peaking at 500 during parts of the build process; then around 70 operational jobs, running the plant and handling the fuel. It is forecast to deliver around £26m of annual economic benefit to the area, says project report. Energy Minister Fergus Ewing told WIP: “The combined heat and power plant at the Port of Rosyth will create hundreds of jobs during its construction, and while in operation will continue to support local employment while generating renewable power for local business and industry.”


Constellation has signed an agreement with the City of Los Angeles to design, build and operate a 27MW renewable energy power plant at LA Sanitation’s Hyperion Treatment Plant. The sewage treatment process at Hyperion generates a Class 1 renewable fuel known as digester gas. The new power plant, which will cost about US$130 million to construct, will use the digester gas produced at Hyperion as its primary fuel source. By 2016 the power plant will produce steam and electricity which will be used to operate Hyperion’s treatment operations. Constellation and its subcontractors will develop, construct and operate the cogeneration facility for 10 years, with an option to extend the agreement for five additional years. Commercial operation of the Hyperion cogeneration facility is expected by the end of 2016. Hyperion, which is claimed to be the tenth largest wastewater treatment facilities in the world, generates a Class 1 renewable fuel known as digester gas, which will be used as a primary fuel source by the cogeneration facility. The power plant’s main mission with be to work 24/7 to will generate steam and energy to power Hyperion's key sewage & water treatment operations. L.A. Sanitation COO, Traci Minamide, said: "This state-of-the-art facility will reduce emissions at the Hyperion plant and secure for our city a new energy source which is reliable, efficient and sustainable."

EBRD commits more than €20 million to Ukraine’s district heating improvement programme

Despite a wave of serious political unrest in the country, The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is continuing to provide further resources to modernise district heating systems in Ukraine. District heating accounted for 20% of the country’s total CO2 emissions and consumes almost 44% of its resources for heat energy. These new investments in district heating systems aim to increase energy and costefficiencies, improve financial sustainability and support the regulatory reform of municipal utilities. The latest of these projects is being implemented in the eastern municipality of Luhansk, for which the EBRD will provide a loan of up to €20 million to the leading Luhansk municipal communal enterprise known as ‘Teplokomunenergo’. This has been secured by the guarantee of the city of Luhansk and will be co-financed with investment grant funding of up to €5 million from the Eastern Europe Energy

Efficiency and Environment Partnership (E5P) to which the EU is the largest contributor. The city, formerly Voroshilovgrad, is located in south- eastern Ukraine. It is the administrative centre of the Luhansk Oblast (province). The city itself is also designated as its own separate municipality within the oblast. The current estimated population in the city & its environs is estimated to be around 445,900 Funding from the Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership will be channelled to improve energy efficiency, reduce energy losses, gas and electricity consumption and improve district heating services for almost a quarter of a million residents in Luhansk in nearly 90,000 households. The loan will finance the installation of 300 individual heating substations and the decommissioning of 15 obsolete basement boilers. It will also enable the replacement of old small and medium-sized boilers with new gas boilers, the modernisation of 50 boiler houses, the replacement of almost 30 kilometres of distribution network pipes with pre-insulated pipes and the installation of a monitoring and dispatching system. The project is expected to begin in March 2014 and will take three years to complete, EBRD said. The city is currently tendering for contractors to perform the work. Technical assistance, in the form of consultancy services, necessary for both the preparation and implementation of the project was provided by the government of Sweden. The EBRD is the largest financial investor in Ukraine. The Bank has committed more than €8.7 billion (US$ 11.9 billion) through 318 projects in Ukraine.




Microgrids: 1,897MW of CHP capacity will be deployed by 2018, reports Navigant

According to analysis by Peter Asmus of Navigant Research, a total of 518 MW of CHP capacity was deployed in microgrids in 2012. This technology leads all forms of microgrid DG deployments, he reports, and will continue to hold the edge by 2018 with 1,897MW, representing more than US$7 billion in annual revenues. Given that it is a base load electricity resource which also provides thermal energy, today’s microgrid CHP capacity is the largest of any DG option besides diesel generators, says Asmus. Peter Asmus told WIP: “The bulk of CHP installations are with grid-tied systems within institutional campus environments. The current low cost of natural gas in North America translates into the ability for microgrids to provide lower cost energy services than the incumbent utility grid.” He says: “For example, the University of California San Diego microgrid is saving over US$4 million annually thanks, in large part, to on-site combustion of natural gas.” US-based Pike Research believes that declining solar PV costs will be one of the largest drivers for microgrids worldwide, and also in terms of numbers of key, new installations, solar PV will be the market leader. CHP will lead in terms of total capacity due to the relative scale of CHP systems compared to solar PV. With the price of solar PV reaching grid parity in key markets by 2014 and 2015, the variability of this DG resource will also necessitate a greater reliance upon energy storage (as well as the networking function of microgrids). All told, this microgrid solar PV market adds up to almost US$2 billion globally by 2018. If one also includes distributed wind and fuel cells in the overall microgrid DG mix, this segment of microgrid enabling technologies is, by far, the largest target of new investment: 3,978 MW of new generation capacity valued at US$12.7 billion.

(HEI) for the design and supply of two circulating fluidised-bed (CFB) boiler islands and flue gas scrubbers for HIDROGEN Energy Import, Export, Distribution and Trading Inc., a subsidiary of Kolin Group of Companies. HEI is acting as EPC contractor for HIDRO-GEN’s power project to be built near the town of Soma in Turkey. Foster Wheeler has received a full notice to proceed on this contract. Commercial operation of the new steam generators is scheduled for the beginning of 2017. Foster Wheeler will design and supply two 255 MWe steam generators and auxiliary equipment for the boiler islands, flue gas cleaning systems with Foster Wheeler CFB scrubbers, and technical advisory services during erection and commissioning. The CFB

boilers will be designed to burn local lignite. “This is the largest CFB project yet to be awarded in Turkey, and Foster Wheeler is looking to a bright future within the Turkish power market,” Tomas Harju-Jeanty, Chief Executive Officer of Foster Wheeler Energia OY Group told WIP in a recent interview. “Due to the significant economic benefit of using lignite for power generation, we expect that Foster Wheeler CFB technology will be the technology of choice for future power projects in the country.” Guo Yu, Chairman of the Board and the President of the Harbin Electric International Co. Ltd. (HEI), commented:.“We are happy to have this opportunity to work in collaboration with Foster Wheeler on this important project in Turkey. With the combination of HEI’s engineering management and Foster Wheeler’s CFB, we are certain this project will mark a new trend for power in Turkey.”

NRG Energy deal & Virgin Limited Edition NRG Energy, Inc. and Virgin Limited Edition have signed a cutting-edge Diesel Reduction Agreement for the provision of renewable power to Necker Island. Under the terms of the deal NRG will develop a renewables-driven microgrid for the entire island, supplying high quality, reliable electricity powered at least 75% by an integrated array of solar, wind and energy storage technologies. This system will be supported by new energy efficiency and energy control automation designed to reduce overall energy use and synchronise energy consumption with renewable energy production

on the island. The agreement was signed and announced at the "Creating Climate Wealth Summit," by Sir Richard Branson, Founder of the Virgin Group, and NRG CEO David Crane. By deploying highly distributed and locally automated and controlled installations, many island nations of the Caribbean can reduce and ultimately eliminate their dependence on fossil fuels for electricity. The high cost of imported fossil fuels across these islands creates an opportunity to deliver clean energy solutions today at a much lower cost, without subsidies and



with immense economic and environmental benefit to the people of the Caribbean, said a Virgin Limited Edition spokesman.



Gas gensets rise to prominence as energy providers in the US/Europe Since 2011 gas gensets have risen in prominence in Europe and the US due to stricter emission laws and lower gas prices. The shale gas boom in the US and increasing adoption of biogas in Europe have kept the gas gen-sets market in the two regions buoyant, reports Frost & Sullivan.

n the last three years, gas gensets have risen in prominence in Europe and the US due to stricter emission laws and lower gas prices. The shale gas boom in the US and increasing adoption of biogas in Europe have kept the gas gensets market in the two regions buoyant while liberalisation has given a leg up to the market in emerging countries. In fact, China and India have become the largest production hubs for gen-sets with many large manufacturers building their capabilities organically or through tie-ups and alliances. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan Global Gas Gen-Sets Market, reveals that the market earned revenues of US$4.14 billion in 2013 and estimates this to reach US$8.59 billion in 2019. The study covers the end-user segments


of residential, commercial and industrial. Gas gensets easily comply with environmental regulations by producing greater amounts of electricity through highly efficient, decentralised natural gas combined heat and power (CHP) systems. Gas property as a clean burning fuel coupled with gen-set advantages such as lower noise, quicker permit obtention, and reduced capital costs make gas gensets the ideal choice for end users across segments. “The surge in natural gas availability and improved infrastructure for delivery have together lowered the price of gas, greatly assisting the sales of gas gensets in developed regions,” said Frost & Sullivan Energy Industry Analyst, Pritil Gunjan. “Though technological improvements, such as the automatic control system, are making gas gen-sets 50% more expensive than their diesel counterparts, their reliability and lower lifecycle costs will keep demand high.” This is especially so in emerging countries, which do not have access to adequate reserves of gas and lack the necessary infrastructure to pipe gas from other regions. The widening demand and supply power gap will escalate gas gen-sets as a source of prime and continuous power. In this

“The surge in natural gas availability and improved infrastructure for delivery have together lowered the price of gas, greatly assisting the sales of gas gensets in developed regions.” ­ Frost & Sullivan Energy Industry Analyst, Pritil Gunjan scenario, highly flexible generating units with fast response times can provide utilities with a flexible power generation infrastructure, allowing them to make the most of the high electricity prices during hours of peak demand. “Gas-fired gen-sets, with their low-risk technology, favourable capital costs, and higher efficiency have become the technology of choice for intermediate load and increasingly, for base load power generation,” noted Gunjan. “Effective policies and regulatory frameworks, natural gas availability, and high consumer awareness will further fuel the growth of the gas gen-set market.” Asia-Pacific will be the fastest growing and largest region for sales of commercial and residential gas gen-sets. For the industrial segment, participants need to focus on offering hybrid gensets and fuel flexibility, advises Frost & Sullivan.

Ultra-efficient CHP plant pays for itself in less than two years Short payback times are decisive criterion in the procurement of capital goods. Karwendel, the manufacturer of the well-known Exquisa brand of cream cheese, has crunched the numbers and confirmed that its CHP plant with MWM engines has paid for itself in less than two years. uchloe im Allgäu is the headquarters of one of Germany's leading dairies and the location where KarwendelWerke Huber GmbH & Co. KG maintains its production facilities. A successful family owned company with powerful brands, Karwendel-Werke Huber GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 1909 by Franz Xaver Huber in Buchloe, Bavaria. Karwendel is one of the most successful private dairy companies in Germany. Its cream cheese, fromage frais and cheese specialities are distributed under the wellknown and established brand names of Exquisa and Miree. Around 450 employees process 182 million litres of milk, producing 90,000 tons of cream cheese and fruit quark annually. This production output makes Karwendel one of the biggest European cream cheese manufacturers. On these manufacturing premises, energy is an essential cost factor in the production process. "In the face of rising overall costs for heat and electricity, we searched for a longterm alternative," reports Josef Scheuermeyer, Technical Director at Karwendel-Werke Huber GmbH KG & Co for the past 10 years.



Three TCG 2016 V12 C engines from MWM form the heart of the CHP plant at Karwendel-Werke GmbH & Co. KG. As the company found itself able to utilise all the heat towards production, a cogeneration power plant proved to be the most economically attractive option. This was put into operation in January 2012 with three TCG 2016 V12 C engines. The TCG 2016 C is said to offer the highest efficiencies in its class (1,660MWe - with 2,920 gensets in use worldwide). It provides the following features: * High profitability: low fuel consumption due to an improved combustion & spark plugs; * High availability: due to extended maintenance intervals thanks to soot-free combustion with prechamber spark plugs; *Lowest lube oil consumption: improved components reduce lube oil consumption by up to 40% to reach the best value in competition, reports MWM. * Low installation costs: a compact design allows lower investment for engine compartment and colling water module; * Varieties of gas & gas qualities: a gas

mixer and TEM evolution allows the engine to burn a diverse selection of gases; * Perfect emission control: high efficiency & clean combustion comply with all common emission requirements. Today, Karwendel-Werke Huber GmbH & Co. KG produces 70% of its own electricity demands and 45% of its heat requirements thanks to these MWM engines. Karwendel achieves an overall efficiency of 87.9% in the CHP plant. After nearly two years and some 15,000 hours of operation, Technical Director Scheuermeyer says he is very satisfied: "The investment in our own cogen power plant paid off rapidly, the payback time was less than two years. The system production is trouble-free, and we can always rely on MWM service."

Making Progress with controlling the UK’s power surges The UK’s National Grid overcomes significant spikes in demand or failures of existing energy production facilities by using its Short Term Operating Reserve. The Progress Group, part of FG Wilson’s global network of 380 dealers, has just successfully completed installations at three different STOR sites across the north of.England, reports WIP. very year the UK’s National Grid commits considerable resources to predicting when these major power surges will occur. Such surges generally impose an extra demand of around 200-400MW on the Grid and require a comprehensive contingency plan involving a network of stakeholders to activate power to ensure a constant electricity supply is provided. One of the most important tools at the National Grid’s disposal for meeting electricity needs during significant spikes in demand or failures of existing energy production facilities is STOR – Short Term Operating Reserve. Formerly known as Standing Reserve, this is an agreement which National Grid has in place with energy providers to balance the supply and demand of electricity on short timescales that could not be achieved using conventional large-scale power sources. The Progress Group, part of FG Wilson’s global network of 380 Dealers, has recently added to its portfolio of STOR projects by successfully completing installations at three different sites across the north of England. The contracts for the projects – located in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and in



Nottinghamshire – were awarded to the Progress Group by Abbey Power following its successful tender process with National Grid. Completed earlier this year, these installations bring the total number of STOR projects successfully delivered by the Progress Group throughout the UK to 16 since the programme was launched three years ago. There are 61 FG Wilson generator sets in total across these latest three sites – comprising a mixture of P1875 and P550 generator sets – each specifically arranged and customised to meet the individual project requirements. Commenting on the successful delivery of these latest successful STOR projects, Phil Starr of the Progress Group told WIP: “We have quickly developed a wellearned reputation as a specialist in the delivery of STOR projects, bringing our expertise to bear for a line of work which is vital to the overall balance of the National Grid power supply. A key element of the service we offer clients is the pedigree of the FG Wilson name and the

guarantee of world-class manufacturing which comes with its generator sets.” He said: “From the outset of the STOR programme, the Progress team devised a strategy which ensures that the power solution delivered for each site provides the optimum value for money. “A key component of this strategy is our policy of using a large number of smaller generator sets, from 500 kVA to 1875 kVA, rather than a few large units, and, even more importantly, designing the most effective arrangement of the units on site.” He concludes: “With an unusually large number of generator sets involved in each project, up to as many as 52 in our most recent installations, devising a control system capable of effectively synchronizing the units was vital to the overall success of the installations. This is where our partnership with FG Wilson was crucial.” WIP

Alternators can now offer real system advantages A DC power convertor from Mecc Alte can be combined with an AC alternator to deliver a quality DC power output customised to suit all Cell tower systems. There are important fuel-saving benefits which have emerged as a result of this development, reports WIP. ERCURIO works with fixed, twin or variable speed control systems and it can control AC or DC inputs from other devices such as the grid, and renewable power resources like solar panels or micro wind turbines, reports the manufacturer. Mecc Alte’s MERCURIO system converts the AC output of a Mecc Alte generator to 24/36/48 or 60 Volts DC power whilst functioning as an alternator and genset supervisor. This gives it the ability to stop


ECO28 alternator. and start the gen-set system. The MERCURIO power converter uses established and robust electronics to deliver an extremely clean DC power supply to Base Transceiver Station loads MERCURIO 5 module.


“A Permanent Magnet Generator system can meet unrivalled levels of efficiency, although outlay costs are much greater and systems are more costly and complex.” and battery systems for the telecom industry. The benefits on fuel saving is key to the concept, as well as integrated variable AC input and genset controls. The system is based on a rotating generator with Digital AVR which can be either a Conventionally Rotor Wound (CRW] generator with power converter, or based on Permanent Magnetic Generator (PMG) technology. Mecc Alte’s CRW system offers several benefits: it offers the winning choice in case of cost per kW optimisation. In addition, spare parts and design footprints match existing Mecc Alte products, ensuring consistency of spares and ensuring proven reliability, reports the company. “A PMG system can meet unrivalled levels of efficiency, although outlay costs are much greater and systems are more costly and complex,” explained a company spokesman. Using the Mecc Alte digital regulators the CRW machines can operate in dual speed and full variable speed. Which is a distinct advantage over previous solutions where the costly PMG systems have to be used.

Load and speed is thus controlled by the MERCURIO. The greatest benefit of the MERCURIO system is said by its makers to be its ‘simplicity of implementation’. The system is designed to manage through programmable delays all the power transients which may occur during the genset startup and load changes in a simple plug and play solution. Battery status, as well as the speed variation triggered by the powering system, are functions of an increase in power, reports Mecc Alte. WIP

World’s largest solar-powered bridge at London Blackfriars station Network Rail, First Capital Connect and Solarcentury surprised passengers arriving at Blackfriars Station on January 22nd, 2014, with a free cup of tea drawn from Britain’s biggest tea cup - all to celebrate the launch of the world’s largest solar bridge, reports WIP. ondon Blackfriars Station now has 4,400 photovoltaic panels covering the roof of the station - these produce enough energy to make almost 80,000 cups of tea a day. In fact, London’s longest array provides up to half of the station’s energy, reducing its CO2 emissions by an estimated 511 tonnes per year – this is equivalent to approximately 89,000 (average) car journeys. The system is the largest array on a bridge in the world, and provides up to 50% of the stations energy. • System size: 1.1 MWp • Number of panels: 4,400 • Area of Solar PV system: 6000m2 • Annual generation: 900,000 kWh • Annual CO2 savings: 513,000 kg The array crowns the revamped Blackfriars station, which now boasts a new entrance on the south bank of the Thames, four new platforms and a redeveloped Underground station, offering longer trains and a better interchange between First Capital Connect and London Underground services. It sits at the heart of the £6.5 billion Thameslink Programme, transforming the route through central London to provide longer, more frequent services.



Simon Kirby, managing director of Network Rail Infrastructure Projects, said: “The dramatic transformation of Blackfriars station from a small and cramped station to a modern landmark is typical of how we are enhancing one of Europe’s busiest rail routes – using smart, sustainable technology to reduce the cost of running the railway at the same time as giving passengers the longer, more frequent trains that are so desperately needed.” David Statham, Managing Director of First Capital Connect which runs Blackfriars Station, said: “Electric trains are already the greenest form of public transport – this roof gives our passengers an even more sustainable journey. The distinctive roof has also turned our station into an iconic landmark visible for miles along the River Thames.” The design and installation of the 6000m2 of PV panels was carried out by Solarcentury. Frans van den Heuvel, CEO of

Solarcentury, said: “Our work at Blackfriars demonstrates two key benefits of solar. Firstly, it can be integrated into the architecture to create a stunning addition to London’s skyline. “Secondly, it can be integrated into the most complex of engineering projects; in this case being built above a construction site, over a rail track, over a river. We are confident that future major infrastructure projects can and will benefit from solar.”

Berlin’s new combined cycle plant will boost power by 300MW GE will provide a GE 9F gas turbine and long-term services for the Lichterfelde CHP facility, developed by the Swedish utility Vattenfall and constructed by Iberdrola Engineering. The new combined-cycle plant is expected to supply 300MW of electricity, reports WIP. he Lichterfelde power plant, developed by the Swedish utility Vattenfall, can supply 300MW of electricity and has a thermal capacity of nearly 230MW for south-western districts of Berlin. GE will now provide operations and maintenance for all its turbines. In 2009, Vattenfall signed an agreement with the local Senate (federal state government) to reduce the utility’s carbon emissions in Berlin by 50% until 2020 in comparison to the base year 1990. The new plant will replace a combined cycle plant which has been operating there since 1972. By combining state-of-the-art combinedcycle technology and district heating, the new combined-cycle plant’s fuel efficiency will rise up to 85%. This allows carbon-dioxide reductions of more than 100,000 tons a year compared to the 40-year-old plant in BerlinLichterfelde. “We are very glad Vattenfall has selected our advanced combined-cycle technology to replace the existing equipment and help meet Germany’s stringent emissions parameters," said Stephan Reimelt, CEO of

Combined cycle power plant - a boost for Mexico Iberdrola S.A. has been awarded a contract for the construction and operation of the 300MW Baja California III combined-cycle power plant in Mexico. Work on the US$270 million plant and associated facilities will begin in April 2014 with full operation planned for August 2016. BERDROLA has just been awarded a contract for the full development, construction, ownership, operation and maintenance of the Baja California III combined-cycle power plant in Mexico. This facility will produce about 300 MW of installed capacity, as well as include associated facilities necessary for the connection of the plant to the country´s electricity grid. The commissioning of this new power plant, to be located in the State of Baja California, will require an investment of about US$270 million. Work on the plant will begin in April 2014 and commercial operation is scheduled for August 2016. IBERDROLA was the successful bidder in an international tender process and, under the terms of the contract, the Company has secured a 25-year power purchase agreement with the Mexican Federal Electricity Commission (CFE). The gas for this new plant will be supplied by CFE. This will fuel the plant’s gas turbine and a steam turbine which are based on GE technology. The new contract consolidates IBERDROLA’s position as Mexico’s largest private electricity producer and the country’s second after CFE, the stateowned electricity utility. More specifically,


MAN Diesel & Turbo’s MAN B&W 12K80MC-S engine


Panorama view of the CFE power plant at La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. The power plant’s Sur I, II and III phases already feature MAN Diesel & Turbo engines in the form of MAN B&W 10K90MC-S and two MAN B&W 12K80MC-S engines. A Sur IV engine – another 12K80MC-S unit – works in single-cycle mode and produce 42.3 MW at site ambient conditions.

the company already maintains an operating capacity of over 5,200 MW, mainly through a medley of combined-cycle gas power plants, as well as wind farm facilities. The Baja California plant is the first to be awarded to IBERDROLA in Mexico since 2004. In a combined cycle power plant like this one the heat of the gas turbine's exhaust is used to generate steam by passing it through a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) with a live steam temperature between 420 and 580 °C. The condenser of the Rankine cycle is usually cooled by water from a lake, river, sea or cooling towers. This temperature can be as low as 15 °C. For large scale power generation, a typical set would be a 270 MW gas turbine coupled to a 130 MW steam turbine giving 400 MW. A typical power station might consist of between 1 and 6 such sets. Plant size is important in the cost of the plant. The larger plant sizes benefit from

economies of scale (lower initial cost per kilowatt) and improved efficiency. A single shaft combined cycle plant comprises a gas turbine and a steam turbine driving a common generator. In a multi-shaft combined cycle plant, each gas turbine and each steam turbine has its own generator. The single shaft design provides slightly less initial cost and slightly better efficiency than if the gas and steam turbines had their own generators. The multi-shaft design enables two or more gas turbines to operate in conjunction with a single steam turbine, which can be more economical than a number of single shaft units. IBERDROLA’s combined-cycle power plants in Mexico currently feature a total of 4,987 MW of installed capacity. WIP

delivery to Croatia which utilises local renewable fuels. This makes the project an important milestone for us. The use of renewable energy sources helps to ensure a reliable energy supply, and creates new business and job opportunities in biomass logistics.” He said: “This project will strengthen our local presence and we plan to use local partners and services during the execution of the project.” The Babina Creda Biomass Cogeneration Plant project was initiated in mid-2011 as a greenfield project. Since then, permits have been obtained, a turnkey EPC contract has been signed, and long-term fuel (woodchip) supply and power purchase agreements have been signed. The cogeneration facility will not only produce power but also supply thermal energy (heat, hot water) to surrounding industrial and/or agricultural facilities to reach higher efficiency levels. Highlights of the project include the following points: * Project Type – Biomass Cogeneration * Main Contractors – Metso-Wärtsilä

joint venture: MW Power OY * Investors – Unit Investment N.V.; Energia Solutiones d.o.o. * Projected Electricity Generation – 68,000,000 kWh/year. * Total Investment Cost – €50,000,000 Metso’s delivery scope includes a Metso DNA automation system (DCS) for the whole power plant, including the BFB boiler, Balance of Plant and electric network. It also includes a Plant Performance Application and systems for thermal stress monitoring and vibration monitoring – all integrated into the control system. A company spokesman commented: “The Automation segment’s process automation and flow control solutions meet the growing needs of Metso’s customer industries to improve production process efficiency as raw materials and energy sources become scarcer and their costs increase.” WIP

Combining Energy Flows Efficiently




‘Biomass, boilers and ‘ broilers - the energy trinity An industrial farm operation in Derbyshire has undergone a £1m investment in biomass which has generated £100,000 in energy savings a year and will produce about £300,000 generated from RHI income alone, reports Lombard, the UK’s largest asset finance provider. stablished in Derbyshire, UK, in 1990 a major industrialised poultry farm operates from three sites, runs 22 poultry sheds and produces in excess of 5.5 million birds annually. This makes it one of the largest producers in the area and a key customer of the loyal food process factory with which the farm enjoys a strong working relationship. By June 2013, twelve 199kW biomass boilers had been installed on the site to supply 22 sheds - with 4 more units projected for installation in 2013. These C16 boilers made by Passat Energi A/S were supplied by Patchwork Energy of York and replaced an existing LNG heating system. The previous system generated CO2 emissions and required continuous ventilation in the sheds. This loses considerable heat and is not a particularly efficient energy source. CO2 has also been shown to suppress growth in poultry. The investment would save on fuel consumption and potentially increase the weight of the birds as a result of the improved environment having a positive effect on the value of the birds, and ultimately profitability. The site’s management team - who have preferred anonymity because of the risk of adverse publicity - worked with Lombard’s Hiten Sonpal, Senior Director


Passat Energi A/S make the boilers in Denmark.


EN+ wood pellets provide the fuel for the farm’s C16 boilers. Their high calorific value offers low moisture levels and burns clean. The pellets are blown into a silo and then fed into the C16 boilers, making it completely hassle-free. for Green Energy Finance, to secure a £750,000 hire purchase agreement. By using biomass the chicken-producing centre can reduce its energy bill by 30-40% - it anticipates that annual fuel bill savings translate to over £100,000. The farm also decided against installing one large boiler and opted for 12 199kW boilers to heat 22 sheds spread across three farms. “Putting in 12 boilers, rather than one large one, reduces the risk of the whole heating system breaking down if one boiler fails. The farm's original gas heating system remains in place and is available as an automatic backup in case any of the boilers fail,” says one of the farm team. Boilers of under 200kW are eligible for the highest tier payments, whereas larger boilers receive a significantly reduced tariff. A spokesman explains: "We wanted an easy-to-manage fuel which was easily available in the area. We opted for an EN+ wood pellet with a high calorific value that has low moisture levels and burns clean. The pellets are blown into a silo and then automatically fed into the boilers, meaning it's hassle-free." The pellets [bottom left] cost 3.8p/kW versus 5.5p/kW when the sheds were

heated by gas, bringing a saving of 2p/kW, regardless of RHI payment. Fuel options for biomass boilers include wood pellets, wood logs and woodchips, as well as straw pellets, which can offer a cheaper fuel source for those with access to the raw material. Every business with a high reliance on generating heat could benefit from biomass boilers. One of the Derbyshire team reports: "Every business needs to reduce its carbon footprint. We need to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions to get chicks off to a good start, so we're killing two birds with one stone." Lombard’s Hiten Sonpal told WIP: “The day-one capital cost of installing biomass equipment is often the main stumbling block for farmers considering different renewable options, but there are ways to make such a project viable. “Choosing a financing company that understands the biomass concept can help producers access a more attractive financing package.”

From sewage gas to energy at Yorkshire Water’s biggest works Edina tendered for the provision of a CHP plant for Esholt Sewage Treatment Works, one of Yorkshire Water’s biggest sewage treatment works serving around 760,000 people in and around Bradford. The site bought two MWM TCG2020V16s with an output of 1.56 MWe each. sholt Sewage Treatment Works is one of Yorkshire Water’s biggest sewage treatment works serving around 760,000 people in and around Bradford. The facility managers saw the potential for additional Combined Heating and Power efficiency from advanced anaerobic digestion. Subsequently, Yorkshire Water appointed Morgan Sindall and Grontmij as its large scheme delivery partners - they formed a Joint Venture to implement these technical changes. Edina tendered for the provision of the CHP and was successful in obtaining orders for two MWM TCG2020V16s with an output of 1.56 MWe each. The MWMTCG2020 is an engine range renowned for its efficiency and longevity, reports the company. These gensets were to form part of a new energy centre on site which would necessitate the relocation of the two existing CHP units - a factor which was also part of Edina’s brief. The containerised CHP was delivered by Edina and commissioned in October 2013. This had to be operational before the disconnection of the existing units to maintain consistency of operations and no loss of revenue to the operator. In November 2013 the original CHP units were re-connected in their new situation forming part of an integrated energy



centre which can generate over 4MWe. The The TCG 2020 range is said to be highly efficient thanks to its optimised inlet duct, combustion chamber and spark plugs. Edina reports that users can save as much as 15% per annum on fuel costs – and increase plant profitability. With its optimised engine components, the official figures suggest the TCG 2020 range requires up to 50 % less lubricating oil than other similar gensets. In terms of efficiency this means long-term savings. The engines also feature TEM (Total Electronic Management) controls which handle not only the engine, but the entire system including the heat supply from cogeneration. Temperature monitoring for each cylinder and anti-knock control ensure the best possible use of fuel and maximum power output, even if gas composition fluctuates. The latest technology such as the gasmixer and TEM allows facilities to use a wide variety of gases. Even the most problematic gases such as colliery gas, landfill gas and sewage gas can be used without difficulty, reports Edina. The Edina group of companies has

specialised in onsite power generation for over 25 years. With over 140 qualified staff operating at five locations in two countries ‘true’ national coverage for all service and maintenance requirements is provided. A wide spectrum of fuel sources are catered for in the product range, diesel, natural gas, biogas and synthetic gases. Edina offers design, supply, hire and full turnkey solutions and constructs the container and all related operational products at its manufacturing premises in Lisburn, Northern Ireland. WIP

Geothermal power station contract awarded in Turkey The Toshiba Corporation has won a major order in Turkey to supply turbines, generators and condensers for the construction of the Alasehir geothermal power plant which the Zorlu Energy Group is seeking to build in Alasehir, in western Turkey’s Manisa Province, reports WIP. his year, key equipment for a new power station, including turbines, generators and condensers, will be supplied to Turkey by the Toshiba Corporation. Since the company won a major order in to supply the Alasehir geothermal power plant project, the Toshiba production lines have been working hard. The geothermal potential in the Agean region is described as ‘large’. In Turkey alone it is estimated that more than 31,500 MWt of energy can be harvested, while the proven potential is much greater than this. At present, 2084 MWt is being utilised for direct applications in Turkey and 135 MWt in Greece. In Turkey the geothermal electricity produced meets 166 MW installed capacity, whereas in Greece geothermal energy is presently not used for electricity production, despite its potential. Zorlu Enerji, an independent power producer and member of the Zorlu Energy Group, holds the contract to build the new plant in Alasehir, in western Turkey’s Manisa Province. Toshiba will begin to install the equipment in October 2014, and the plant is scheduled to come online in 2015. Electricity consumption in Turkey is growing fast, driven by population growth

and economic development. Estimates from the International Energy Agency (IEA) suggest that power demands will more than double in the next decade. The Turkish government is responding by promoting capacity expansion, including boosting geothermal power generation from 300MW to around 600MW. Most of these plants will be built in the geothermal-rich Aegean Region, in the west of the country. Toshiba will install total 40MW of two systems: a 30MW flash steam generation system that pulls hot water under high pressure into a separator to produce steam; and a 10MW binary cycle power facility which uses lower temperature fluid to vaporise a liquid with a lower boiling point. It is the first time Toshiba has supplied any type of geothermal power equipment like this to Turkey. Toshiba is currently the world's top supplier in the supply of geothermal power, with a 23% market share. The company has installed 52 geothermal systems around the world, including North America, Southeast Asia and Europe, with a combined capacity of 2,800 MW.

In August 2013, Toshiba established Toshiba Infrastructure and Electronics A.S. in Istanbul, to reinforce its power generation system business in Turkey and its neighbouring countries. Toshiba is also seeking participation in a major geothermal plant project planned in East Africa. It will continue to promote and expand its geothermal power business around the world as part of comprehensive portfolio of renewable energy solutions that also includes wind and hydroelectric power generation systems.

Uruguay gets dual-fuel units from APR Energy APR Energy is helping the Uruguayan state power company, Usinas y Transmisiones Electricas (UTE), to overcome the country’s vulnerability to seasonal rainfall patterns and reliance on foreign electricity imports, with the provision of 300MW, via dual fuel mobile turbines. ike many of its South American neighbours, power generation in Uruguay is largely based on domestic hydropower, which leaves the country vulnerable to seasonal rainfall patterns. “Over 60% of Uruguay’s installed grid capacity is hydro, leaving it at times dependent on electricity imports from neighbouring countries like Argentina and Brazil,” Brian Rich, APR Energy’s Sr. Vice President of Business Development, told WIP. “However, given the economic growth and increasing electricity demand of these countries, Uruguay can no longer rely on imports to meet domestic consumption.” The Uruguayan state power company, Usinas y Trasmisiones Eléctricas (UTE), needed a reliable, cost effective and environmentally-friendly bridging power solution to meet demand, while new sources of power generation were, and continue to be, financed and built. The solution was to add reliable, cost effective back up capacity to the national grid to alleviate seasonal and market shortages. APR Energy delivered, installed, and commissioned a turnkey plant, located 45km northwest of Montevideo, consisting of the first four of the eventual 12 high


power density dual-fuel mobile turbine generators in the country. The new mobile turbines integrated seamlessly into UTE’s existing permanent plant infrastructure. “In late 2012, UTE decided that it would need some further supplemental power to eliminate its key dependency on any foreign electricity importation,” added Rich. “It was a strong endorsement of our existing operations that we were awarded an additional contract to provide an incremental 200MW, bringing our total capacity in country to 300MW. At the same time UTE also renewed our original contract, to run into mid-2014.” APR Energy is a London-listed company which specialises in the provision of reliable and efficient electricity, through the rapid global deployment and installation of scalable turnkey power solutions.

In October 2013, APR Energy acquired GE’s power rental business, taking its total fleet capacity to 2.1GW, comprising the world’s leading fast-track dual-fuel mobile turbine fleet of 1.2GW, and a further 900MW of diesel and gas power modules. The deal created a long-term strategic alliance with GE, who became a key strategic investor in the company. Turbine technology provides greater reliability, requires much less maintenance, has higher power density, and produces significantly less emissions than its reciprocating engine counterparts. The fuel flexibility of the turbines, combined with the ability to operate at both 50 and 60Hz, makes them useful for a broad range of applications, with the size and power generating capacity of each individual turbine ensuring easier synchronicity with the grid.

HHI & Sidem sign US$1.4bn power contract

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), the world’s biggest shipbuilder and a leading industrial plant contractor, and Sidem, a subsidiary of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, has announced the signing of a new US$1.4 billion EPC contract with SHAMAL AZ-ZOUR AL-OULA to build the first phase of the Az-Zour North Independent Water and Power Project (IWPP). HHI, as the EPC consortium lead, will carry out the construction of the gas-fired 1,500 MW combined cycle power plant. Sidem, as EPC consortium partner, will construct a 107 MIGD (486,000m3/day) desalination water plant on a turnkey basis. The capacity of Az-Zour North will account for around 10% of Kuwait’s installed power generation capacity and around 20% of its installed desalination capacity. The consortium will complete the project approximately 100 km south of Kuwait City in the fourth quarter of 2016. Kuwait’s Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) will be the off-taker of power and water produced from the project under a 40-year long-term Energy Conversion and Water Purchase Agreement (ECWPA). The project is the first independent water and power project in Kuwait developed as part of long-term expansion

plans of the power and water production capacity in Kuwait and a pathfinder scheme for Kuwait’s publicprivate partnership (PPP) programme. As EPC partners, HHI and Sidem have been participating in the development process together with the consortium formed by GDF SUEZ, Sumitomo Corporation and Abudlah Hamad Al Sagar & Brothers, since March 2011. Competition among developers from Europe, Japan, Korea and the Middle East was tough. A positive evaluation of HHI by the Kuwaiti Ministry might have benefited the award as HHI handed over Kuwait’s previous Sabiya Combined Cycle Power Plant far earlier than the required schedule, which enabled MEW to meet the challenging electricity demand during the summer peak load period of 2011. Mr. Chun In-soo, COO of HHI’s Industrial Plant & Engineering Division told WIP: “HHI, GDF SUEZ, and Sidem have worked together on a wide range of projects in the Middle East. The synergy of our alliance will ensure this project is completed in time and on budget.” The new contract reflects the fact that large water and power projects are considered a major priority in the Middle East at the current time.

€11m contract for Czech power station Alstom and energy company ČEZ have signed a contract worth approximately €11 million (CZK 300 million) for another stage of the modernisation of Počerady power plant in the Czech Republic. Under the contract Alstom will refurbish another two 200 MWe

pulverised lignite coal units, boilers 2 and 5, at the Počerady power plant. The Počerady project includes a significant adjustment of the combustion system to reduce the nitrogen oxide (NOx) that is formed during the combustion process and the addition of a Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction installation to further remove NOx from the flue gas. The scope and technical solutions are similar to the refurbishment project for boilers 3 and 4 which has been awarded to Alstom in October 2013. The project is scheduled to be

Pairing a 7F.05 gas turbine with two LMS1000 units in power plant upgrade for Los Angeles In the US, The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is losing the weight of old technology and exercising its right to use a more environmentally-friendly approach. The utility is upgrading its Scattergood Generating Station to cleaner power generating technology from GE. LADWP plans to phase out Scattergood’s 460-megawatt (MW) Unit 3 conventional steam boiler, in operation since 1974, and replace the capacity with cleaner, faster, breakthrough technology from GE. For the Scattergood repowering project near El Segundo, LADWP chose the combination of GE’s advanced heavy-duty and aeroderivative gas turbines, integrated using GE’s modern distributed control system (DCS). This is a pairing of one GE GT-7F.05 gas turbine in a ‘Rapid Response’ combined-cycle power island, with two LMS100 gas turbines into a hybrid power plant, specifically configured to meet LADWP’s unique requirements. GE’s ecomagination qualified advanced combined-cycle power island with ‘Rapid Response’ technology will feature a 216-MW 7F.05 gas turbine, a GE ST-A650 steam turbine operating in combined-cycle mode and a heat recovery steam generator. GE also will supply two of its ecomagination qualified 104-MW intercooled LMS100 aeroderivative gas turbines. With their rapid startup capabilities, the turbines are ideally suited to meet the grid’s need for highly responsive .and flexible units. Described by GE as ‘the most efficient simple-cycle gas turbine available’, the LMS100 can change load at 50 MW/minute per unit as well as start and stop multiple times per day to suit rapidly changing grid loads.
