Wood Group GTS Reduces NOx Levels By 45 Percent At Ohio Power Station
Houston, TX /PRNewswire/ -- Wood Group GTS achieved a 45 per cent reduction of NOx on a GE Frame 5P gas turbine as part of an $800,000 turnkey NOx performance project at a power station in Ohio. The black start unit at the coal plant was being re-permitted for commercial operation as a peaking unit. Because the EPA required stricter emission regulations to allow the permitting change, the facility was required to reduce NOx emissions from 119ppm to 65ppm. The upgrade was carried out within a 10-day planned outage schedule, thereby avoiding additional down time of the plant.
"Reducing NOx emissions delivered a rapid ROI to the facility," said Frank Avery, president of Wood Group GTS – Power Plant Services. "Wood Group GTS' investment in gas turbine performance technology, extensive optimization and upgrade experience as well as a track record in major maintenance services, uniquely positions us as an independent service provider to deliver robust and cost-efficient solutions for gas turbine owners and operators."
The scope of work included a new Wood Group GTS water injection skid, new Wood Group GTS fuel nozzles and liner caps. Also installed was a ring water manifold with the appropriate check valves, flame scanners and a lube oil temperature transmitter to ensure system function and long-term reliability.
