Design and installation of mechanical, electrical and public health services a new business village, this project was the first office development in the UK to incorporate a passive heating and cooling ventilation system utilising earth ducts.
Projects Newberry EGS Demonstration, Oregon - Case Study
The Newberry EGS Demonstration project is the site of cutting-edge research into enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) development. AltaRock Energy began investigating the Newberry site for EGS development in 2009 . The project site is located on the western flank of Newberry Volcano in Central Oregon and aims to improve the feasibility and viability of EGS technologies and applications. The major goals of the project are to demonstrate current technology and advances in EGS through: Stimulation of at least 3...
UNIPER Maasvlakte power plants - Case study
Project FactsThe UNIPER power plant, Maasvlakte (MPP3) is located adjacent to Rotterdam harbour on the North Sea coast and has a capacity of 1100 MW netto. The Power Plant utilises seawater for cooling of the condenser during the energy generating process. The seawater is extracted from the Europahaven and discharges the warmed seawater into an exhaust basin that flows out through the joint outlet (block dam) in the Princess Margriethaven. UNIPER uses bulk sodium hypochlorite to control biofouling and has...
Scalable Power to Match Industrial Park Growth in Southeast Asia Case Study
Powerphase recently installed two Turbophase modules at a Malaysian high-tech park, one of several projects it has underway in Asia. Ensuring reliable and efficient natural gas capacity is a challenge in the fast-growing Southeast Asian grid. Southeast Asia’s hot climate is a challenge for efficient CCGT operation because hotter ambient temperatures reduce air density and GT combustion efficiency. Turbophase can boost performance in hot conditions, and has a small footprint that minimizes infrastructure...
More Power & Efficiency on a 7FA in the Middle East at 50°C Case Study
Powerphase collaborated with the Tamimi Group of Companies and Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) to demonstrate Turbophase system’s ability to boost F-class gas turbine (GT) power output at the high ambient air temperatures that Saudi Arabian summers are known for. Besides having hot summers, Saudi Arabian labor costs are high such that any technology that reduces plant downtime can help plant operators save a lot of money. Besides demonstrating the technical goals of boosting GT efficiency, the demonstration...
The Power of Reclaimed Water
Power generation need not be another source of strain on diminishing freshwater resources. Well-established water reclamation technologies are enabling producers to conserve resources and money. Meeting the needs of a planetary population expected to surpass eight billion people by 2025 is requiring more output from fewer resources. In the case of dwindling supplies of freshwater, the strain on the natural resource from economic and population growth, and climate change, can be exacerbated by other...
