Doosan Portable Power introduces natural gas generators at POWER-GEN International
Doosan Portable Power has introduced the company’s first natural gas mobile generators: the NG160, NG225 and NG295. Doosan's natural gas generators are ideal for oil and gas exploration, site preparation and production, water well drilling, industrial plants and as auxiliary or maintenance power in factory settings. The generators are also equipped with an automatic dual-fuel switch, allowing the generator to operate on natural gas, as well as propane from an external tank. Additionally, the generator includes an Onboard Scrubber System, which removes excess dirt and water from wellhead gas.
“Our natural gas generators are another testament to the expertise of Doosan Portable Power, especially in the oil and gas markets,” said Todd Howe, global generator products manager, Doosan Portable Power. “These generators were designed with innovative features that reduce downtime and cut operating costs. The units can operate on excess wellhead natural gas, eliminating the cost for diesel fuel, as well as the expense of transporting diesel to the site.”
Doosan natural gas generators meet environmental regulations on emissions and containment. Operators can select 50 Hz or 60 Hz, and choose between 480 V and 600 V alternator output.

HIPOWER SYSTEMS demonstrates updated power generation equipment training academy
HIPOWER SYSTEMS, a manufacturer of power generation and power distribution equipment in North America, announced it has updated its online power generation equipment training academy, HIPOWER University.
The company demonstrated its 2014 Power Generation Training and 2014 Spark-Ignited Generators Training during POWER-GEN International.
“HIPOWER University doesn’t replace the hands-on training we conduct in the field or at our factory. Rather, it gives any owner, reseller or distributor of HIPOWER SYSTEMS generators an on-demand, easy-to-access resource for training at any time,” said HIPOWER SYSTEMS President Rafael Acosta.
“Providing excellent service is a major goal for us, and we consider training programs to be part of that service to our customers,” said HIPOWER SYSTEMS Regional Service Manager Ron Laroe. “The more we can teach end users and help them enjoy reliable operation and longevity from their generators, the happier and more satisfied everyone will be.”

Echogen Power Systems’ introduces waste heat recovery system
Echogen Power Systems, a producer of scalable sCO2 based heat-to-power systems, announced the commercial availability of its 7.3-MW EPS100 heat engine system as a turnkey solution during POWER-GEN International, the world’s largest exhibition designed to connect key suppliers and service providers with industry decision makers.
“By being the first to bring a commercial supercritical CO2 power cycle to the market, we have developed a heat engine that can outperform steam across our customers’ key value drivers - installed cost, operating and maintenance costs and levelized cost of electricity, all in a compact, energy dense, safe solution that does not require water to operate. We intend to introduce our product with a core group of key early adopters/partners with whom we intend to build long term relationships and who represent a variety of applications including oil & gas, chemical processing, iron, steel, and glass. Each of these industries experience tremendous energy losses in the form of waste heat – it is essentially the same thing as burning money. We’re here to help them do better.” says Phil Brennan, CEO, Echogen Power Systems. “And we are especially keen in the near term on opportunities to work with clients interested in pairing the unit to a gas turbine to realize the power of a sCO2 combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) which we believe is the future of distributed and utility scale gas generation.”
“As the United States and the rest of the world experiences a shift in favor of natural gas based power production and away from coal, the advantages of a sCO2 based system are amplified relative to centuries old steam technologies. This allows power production to be increased without the use of water,” says Dr. Timothy Held, Chief Technology Officer, Echogen Power Systems. “It allows us to produce more power at lower cost, using less space, and without the environmental complexities and maintenance challenges associated with a water based system.”
Echogen Power Systems will be at their partner Dresser-Rand’s (NYSE: DRC) booth #2615 during the Power-Gen International 2014 show.

GE Supplies New Turbines, Unveils New Retrofit Technologies that Increase Plant Capacity and Efficiency
General Electric (NYSE: GE) is deploying gas turbines at power plants in the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, and is also introducing new equipment that can be used to retrofit existing plants, driving up capacity and efficiency at those existing facilities.
GE unveiled the technologies in a Dec. 9 session with the media at PennWell’s annual Power Generation Week conference in Orlando.
In the U.S., GE will supply two of its highly efficient and flexible 7F.05 gas turbines to Calpine Corp. for the York 2 Energy Center, a nominal 760-MW, dual-fuel combined cycle plant near York, Pa. That project is adjacent to Calpine’s existing York Energy Center. The turbines are to be delivered to the site in December 2015.
These turbines will use GE’s Dry Lower NOx 2.6+ dual-fuel combustion system, which reduces NOx emissions to as low past 9 parts per million during gas-fired operations without using water injection technology. The turbines will also be able to operate on low-sulfur diesel fuel.
In Saudi Arabia, the first four of GE’s 7F.05 gas turbines at Saudi Electric Co.’s Power Plant 12 have reached commercial operation, with another four to follow. All eight units at PP12 should be operating commercially in combined-cycle mode by early 2015, delivering nearly 2,000 MW.
PP12 is part of Saudi Arabia’s plan to add 33 GW of power capacity by 2020. The eight units at PP12 are the first of 20 GE 7F.05 turbines to be delivered, with another 12 turbines for PP13 and PP14 to be delivered in late 2014 and early 2015.
Two new breakthrough technologies that GE announced for its 7F turbines - which can be built as part of new installations and retrofit on older ones – are the Dry Low NOx (DLN) 2.6+ Combustion and Advanced Compressor upgrades. These are the latest additions to GE’s Power FlexEfficiency portfolio of upgrade solutions.
Said Paul McElhinney, GE’s president and CEO of Power Generation Services: “These solutions will provide our customers with the operational flexibility to quickly respond as their needs evolve over time.”
The DLN 2.6+ solution adds fuel flexibility, allowing burns of up to 25 percent ethane or propane from shale gas, along with regular natural gas. The system can also handle up to 20 percent hydrogen. The first order for this upgrade system has been placed with an unnamed Midwest power plant. The technology also allows reductions of NOx emissions to as low as 5 ppm. It can be combined with GE’s OpFlex software to further reduce emissions.
The Advanced Compressor can increase efficiency (by up to 2 percent), output (by up to 12 percent) and operational availability. This system is new to the retrofit market, but already being used on new 7F.05 gas turbines.
MAN Diesel & Turbo to deliver equipment to Caribbean Utilities
MAN Diesel & Turbo SE (MDT), in a consortium with Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor A/S (BWSC), entered into an agreement with Caribbean Utilities Company, Ltd. (CUC) to deliver and install two 18.5-MW 18V48/60B medium-speed diesel generating units, one 2.7 MW steam turbine, and associated auxiliary equipment.
The generating units will be housed in a new purpose built power house at CUC's North Sound Plant in Grand Cayman and will be commissioned in June 2016.
MDT and BWSC have designed and installed 68-MW of diesel generating units for the CUC prior to this project.
