It’s almost unthinkable now but, not so long ago, fuel costs were low and power plants were built without worrying about the expense of running them. Today, the price of fuel has rocketed, and gas turbine powered plants are becoming more and more costly to keep in business.
If this sounds familiar, you may be facing the decision of whether or not to upgrade to a more modern, efficient power plant. Yes, it’s a huge outlay but those fuel prices are becoming cripplingly high which makes the investment tempting. You can’t carry on as you are, after all.
However, we’re here to tell you there’s another option. You don’t necessarily need to upgrade your power plant… perhaps you could cut costs, improve reliability and extend your plant’s lifespan for a mere fraction of the outlay. Perhaps we can help…
The building boom
In around 1998 natural gas was cheap and gas turbine powered plants were built quickly without too much concern for efficiency. Owners wanted to cash in on inexpensive fuel and this building boom lasted until the end of 2003. Today, now that gas prices have massively increased and show no signs of dipping, we are stuck with inefficient power plants that use way more fuel than they should and owners are struggling with the huge gas bills eating into their profit.
