Three Feasibility Studies of Gas Turbine Cogeneration Plants

     

Lewis Engineering has completed detailed feasibility studies of three gas turbine plants in Hungary for a private power developer; these were:

  1. Gas Turbine Cogeneration Plant at a Chemical Manufacturing Plant:

    • Greenfield site.
    • 2 x 25 MW gas turbines, dual fuel firing capability.
    • 2 HRSGs with supplementary firing.
    • 1 – 50% rated auxiliary boiler.

  2. Gas Turbine Cogeneration/ Combined Cycle Plant at Steel Mill:

    • Existing powerhouse and some existing systems.
    • 2 x 25 MW gas turbines.
    • 2 HRSGs, unfired.
    • 1 – 7 MW existing steam turbine.

  3. Gas Turbine Cogeneration/ Combined Cycle Plant at Petrochemical complex:

    • Greenfield site.
    • 2 x 43 MW gas turbines.
    • 2 HRSGs with supplementary firing.
    • 1 – 26 MW steam turbine.
    • 1 – 50% rated auxiliary boiler.

All of the above projects include tie-ins to various existing plant systems and to the local power grid.

Lewis Engineering provided the following services for each project:

  • Detailed site analysis at each industrial plant.
  • Determination of the specific requirements of each client.
  • Option analysis of various plants that would meet client’s requirements. • Sizing and configuration of each plant.
  • Multi-discipline preliminary design to a high degree of detail, using the GT-PRO computer model.
  • Specification of major equipment, and obtaining quotations for these from various vendors.
  • Determination of operating and maintenance requirements.
  • Derivation of capital and O&M cost estimates.
  • Financial feasibility analysis using LEI’s financial model.
  • Development of implementation plan and schedule.
