Gas curtailments in the US during recent winters left many gas turbine users at a disadvantage because of inoperable liquid fuel systems or the lack of multiple fuel sources, thus missing out on generation opportunities at higher market prices.
Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) October 14, 2014
Senior Combustion Engineer, Mitch Cohen, of Turbine Technology Services (TTS) will present at the 2014 7EA Users Group Annual Conference. The conference takes place in Murfreesboro, Tennessee (in the greater Nashville area) from October 21 through October 23 at the Embassy Suites Nashville SE-Murfreesboro. Cohen will speak to users and select vendors about “Operational Versatility for your Gas Turbine with Fuel Flexibility” the morning of Thursday, October 23 at 8:00 a.m.
The forecast of fuel pricing and availability is often impacted by various global political, economic and environmental conditions. The increasingly extreme and unpredictable winters each year have been one of the leading complications in efforts to obtain power and natural gas. As TTS’ Vice President of Sales for the Americas, Frank Hoegler, explains, "Gas curtailments in the US during recent winters left many gas turbine users at a disadvantage because of inoperable liquid fuel systems or the lack of multiple fuel sources, thus missing out on generation opportunities at higher market prices."
The capability to successfully use multiple fuel sources allows gas turbine users to better manage unexpected fuel supply conditions and maintain availability of their units. The ability to reliably operate on multiple fuels not only increases value through improved versatility, it also ensures the ability to produce power under any conditions. For his presentation at the 2014 7EA Users Group Annual Conference, Cohen will focus on the importance of dual fuel reliability for single and MNQC diffusion combustors and dual fuel DLN1 operation, through a practical perspective on the subject.
Cohen, has more than 20 years of experience in the design, operation and maintenance of Dry Low NOx (DLN) and diffusion combustion systems for gas turbines. Combining that with TTS’ 30+ years of providing gas turbine technology expertise and fuel flexibility solutions, the presentation will provide attendees with knowledgeable insight into the needs and applications of operational versatility for gas turbine users.
