Engineering and Feasibility Studies for Applying Hydrogen and Ammonia Fuels in Thermal Power Plants

There is a lot of discussion in the power industry about using hydrogen or ammonia as a fuel to“decarbonize” power generation, but many of the details on how that can be rolled out cost-effectively are often not specified.  Tetra Engineering can provide support when considerings using these fuels in modern thermal power plants and evaluate the impact of using these fuels on all plant systems, including looking at projected changes in gas turbine and boiler performance and emissions.

Grade 91 Low Alloy Steel Concerns for Older CCGTs

Grade 91 is a CSEF (creep strength enhanced ferritic) alloy introduced in the late 20th century for high temperature service in power boilers. ASME BPVC-II develops material properties based on time-to-rupture data after 100,000 hrs, with a safety factor of 3.5.
