The facility will produce 14.9 MW of electricity, using a reactive process that converts natural gas into electricity. Dominion has acquired this development from FuelCell Energy Inc.
French power manufacturer Alstom will build a combined cycle heat and power plant in Cologne, Germany for RheinEnergie AG, a regional service company providing energy and drinking water in Cologne and the Rhineland region around Cologne. The Niehl 3 CHP power plant, to be commissioned in 2016, will have an installed capacity of 450 MW, using natural gas as its fuel.
GE recently introduced ClearCurrent PRO, a gas turbine inlet filter cartridge that has been field tested and shown to positively affect gas turbine performance, while helping to reduce the effects of turbine degradation. With the release of this inlet filter, which contains PRO (Predictable, Reliable Output) technology, GE's Air Filtration business has shown that selecting the right filter and monitoring air quality is one of the most important aspects needed to deliver the turbine performance that operators require.
ATCO Emissions Management recently announced the addition of heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) to its comprehensive line of gas turbine auxiliary equipment for the power, oil and gas, and cogeneration markets.
