Illustrations of our experience and know-how

The gas turbine fleet operating on fuel oil had a long record of high O&M costs due to performance degradation and a shortfall in component life. The client hired CPS to do a full engineering analysis to develop a strategy for a solution to the problems:

  • CPS carried out a detailed analysis including simulations (CFD) of the combustion system to identify the root cause of the overheating problems and eventual part failure.
  • By improving the combustion process according to the CPS recommendations the risk of engine failure is mitigated and in addition an improvement in turbine performance is achieved.
