Expanding Load Flexibility with SCR Innovation


As the commissioning and planning of renewable energy sites increases every year, the operation needs of stationary gas turbines are changing. Daily cycling of these turbines in both simple cycle and combined cycle modes present challenges from dispatch, to operations and maintenance for each site. The Duck Curve, which is a reality for many sites in the western part of the US, may begin to dominate typical gas turbine load profiles.

Low load operation is a key component for many sites planning to operate in this new arena, and combatting emissions during low load operation is a common problem across many sites. On top of these new demands, areas of the US will begin seeing more stringent emissions requirements over the next 2-3 years. CORMETECH has developed new catalyst technologies that can be combined to increase emissions reduction efficiency, allow for more ammonia injection without increasing slip and improve turbine efficiency throughout a wide load range.

  • Available catalyst technology utilized for expanding load flexibility of SSGT and CCGT
  • Meeting multi-pollutant emissions requirements with a single catalyst layer
  • Reducing turbine back pressure to improve turbine efficiency with a SCR catalyst
  • Tackling increasingly stringent emission regulatory environment and changing design conditions

Attendees can ask specific questions which will be covered during the Q&A session of the webinar.

  • SSGT and CCGT Plant Owners
  • Plant Managers
  • Plant and Corporate Environmental Engineers
  • Petroleum Refinery SCR Systems Operators
  • Corporate Engineering Management
  • AE Firms
