Whether driven by changing market conditions, demand or efficiency, the way a plant operates in today’s environment may not reflect those for which it was originally designed. That is okay! The changes in demand can be as unique as the environments in which they operate, and Nooter/Eriksen is ready to help you meet those challenges. The first step is to understand the new demands on the HRSG equipment and what that means for your specific circumstances.
Transitioning from base load to cyclic service, CT upgrades, low load operation, part load firing, and boiler rerates are just some examples of changes that impact the operating conditions imposed on the HRSG. In the event the HRSG is operated under these different conditions, certain components of the HRSG may be operating at significantly reduced margins or even above the original design conditions. Our experienced engineering staff can perform a detailed evaluation of any HRSG and advise about needed modifications to find the best possible overall solution. This provides assurance to owners that any changes can be accomplished without increased risk of failure from the HRSG operating outside its original design conditions.
