Liquid to Dual Fuel - LM2500
This upgrade provides the capability to run either on gas or liquid fuel, with or without water injection for NOx control. The modifications consider the addition of dual-fuel manifolds with water injection capability, including metering, shut off valves, boost skid and controls update as needed.
Applicable Turbine Models
- Easily switching between fuels allows increased site power generation flexibility.
- Maximize profitability by switching to a cheaper fuel depending on market conditions.
- Increased power output using the water injection capabilities.
- Switching to gas fuels lowers NOx emissions.
- Gas fuels also have higher power outputs.
- Can use either Woodward, GE Mark VI / Mark VIe, or RX3i controls systems.
- Increase Uptime
- Enhance Operational Flexibility
- Improve Maintainability
- Lower Environmental Footprint
How it works
- For adding gas fuel capabilities:
- A dual fuel manifold with water injection consisting of two liquid fuel manifolds, a gas manifold, and 30 dual fuel nozzles.
- Gas fuel compressor (off-package if required to boost gas pressure).
- Gas fuel coalescer/dehumidifier and/or a filter/scrubber skid (off-package).
- A fuel-metering valve (on-package).
- Gas shutoff valves, check valves, and vents (on-package).
- For adding liquid fuel capabilities:
- A liquid fuel forwarding skid with a 2’’ pipe customer connection with 5 psig Flooded Suction (off-package).
- Fuel filtered to 10 μm absolute (off-package).
- 2 liquid fuel manifolds, hoses, and fuel nozzles will be added on-engine (on-package).
- Simplex liquid fuel boost skid (off-package).
- A duplex low pressure filter skid (off-package).
- Fuel metering valves (on-package).
- Liquid fuel shutoff valves, check valves, and return fuel lines (on-package).
- Both liquid and gas fuel conversions involve installing connections to customer fuel connections (flanged outside main base) and changing the fuel manifolds.
- Controls software logic and HMI changes will also be needed.
