17 December, 2019
Prysmian has successfully commissioned an 85 km HVDC link to connect the wind array DolWyn3.

Ansaldo Energia and Equinor collaborate on 100% H2 gas turbine combustor
17 December, 2019
Sequential combustion, as incorporated in the GT26/GT36 technology acquired by Ansaldo Energia from Alstom, facilitates the use of high hydrogen – even 100% H2 – fuel for gas turbines.

GE expands its SF6-free HV offering
17 December, 2019
GE Renewable Energy’s Grid Solutions business has announced plans to invest tens of millions of dollars to expand by 2025 its range of sulphur hexafluoride–free high- voltage substation equipment to include all key high-voltage levels. This is one of Grid Solution’s biggest portfolio investments in years. GE is a leading producer of SF6-free high-voltage solutions with its Green Gas for Grid, or g3, offering, which is said to feature the same high performance and compact dimensional footprint as traditional products, but with a more than 99% reduction in global warming potential.

HyNet’s plan: hydrogen to the people by 2024
17 December, 2019
HyNet, which describes itself as “the most advanced hydrogen and carbon capture, utilisation and storage project in the UK” says it “could see hydrogen blended into the gas grid and piped into homes and businesses by 2024.”

First non-metallic armoured sea cable
17 December, 2019
Prysmian has launched what is claimed to be a breakthrough innovation in the submarine cable industry, and has successfully laid the first cable, to connect three Greek islands.

Pakistan’s CPHGC plant goes commercial
17 December, 2019
GE reports that the 2 x 660 MWe CPHGC (China Power Hub Generation Company) power plant in Pakistan has achieved commercial operation, on schedule and on budget.

Fresh impetus for UK offshore
17 December, 2019
The Crown Estate has launched the UK’s first major offshore wind leasing round in a decade, opening up the opportunity for 7GW or more of new installations.

Optimisation of lignite beater wheel mills using modern gas flow measurements
17 December, 2019
A new digital time-of-flight-based cross-correlation technique, employing pairs of robust infrared sensors, enables hot recirculation gas flow into lignite beater wheel mills to be accurately measured, with significant potential benefits for mill control and optimisation. By Hans Georg Conrads PROMECON, Barleben, Germany

NTPC commissions India’s first ultrasupercritical plant
17 December, 2019
Over the summer, NTPC has been commissioning what it describes as India’s “first ultrasupercritical coal fired plant”, the 2 x 660 MW Khargone facility in Madhya Pradesh. With main steam conditions of 600°C/270 kg/cm2, this plant “operates at an efficiencyof 41.5%, 3.3% higher than conventional supercritical units”, says NTPC.

Why the circulating fluidised bed makes sense for India
28 November, 2019
The use of Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) circulating fluidised bed (CFB) combustion technology has grown from small-scale applications to large ultra-supercritical power plants in less than 20 years. The CFB is rapidly becoming the technology of choice for solid-fuel-fired power generation applications, particularly for locations with lower quality fuel. It addresses the need for sustainable use of domestic fuels in many countries, notably India. By Asif Hussain & Robert Giglio, Sumitomo SHI FW

CfDs drive down prices
27 November, 2019
The 3rd allocation round (completed Sep 2019) of the UK’s Contracts for Difference (CfD) auction – a support scheme for ‘less established’ low carbon generation technologies – achieved record low prices for offshore wind. By Simon Virley, Head of Energy and Natural Resources, KPMG.

HVTS cladding proves effective against biomass corrosion
26 November, 2019
Based on inspections in 2018 and 2019 of an E.ON boiler in Sweden, the HVTS (High Velocity Thermal Spray) metal alloy cladding technique developed by Integrated Global Services is an effective way of addressing corrosion problems caused by biomass fuel.

New Benson evaporator for vertical HRSGs exceeds expectations
20 November, 2019
A new Benson HP evaporator design for vertical-exhaust-gas-flow heat recovery steam generators – deployed for the first time in the 24 HRSGs of the Siemens H-class Egypt Megaproject – has proved highly successful. Commissioning and operation have been trouble free, thanks to innovative design features and simulation-based prior optimisation of the all-important Benson-specific feed-water controller. Gerhard Schlund, Tobias Schulze, Frank Thomas and Jan Brückner, Siemens Gas and Power, Germany.

How to make CCS feasible
19 November, 2019
The CONvert research project in Denmark has demonstrated that full integration of carbon capture with biomass fuelled CHP, combined with subsurface heat and carbon dioxide storage, significantly reduces capture costs and suggests a possible route to becoming carbon negative, via BECCS (bioenergy with carbon capture and storage).

Shale gas – powering an energy revolution
15 November, 2019
The last IEA review of the USA’s energy policies was published in 2015. In the meantime, the shale revolution has become a major driving force for US energy policy, shifting its focus from coping with energy scarcity to exploiting energy abundance. This report is a summary of the IEA’s most recent findings.
