OPRA Gas Turbine Driven Generator and Enerproject Gas Solutions – A Feasible Solution to Power Outages
By Kirton Mechanical Equipment (KME)
Reduce your company’s reliance on power utilities by generating 1.8Mw of in-house power and benefiting from the hot exhaust gas, which can be used for a myriad of factory heating applications.
In our ongoing effort to identify useful and innovative technical advances for our client base, Kirton Mechanical Equipment is pleased to introduce our partnership with Netherlands-based manufacturer, OPRA Turbines, as well as Swiss-based Enerproject Gas Solutions.
OPRA Gas Turbines
Opra Turbines manufactures the state-of-the-art packaged 1.8MW – OP16 Gas Turbine Generator set. The turbine has been designed to enable high fuel flexibility, a small footprint and long operating hours between major overhauls. It has a robust, industrial, all radial design and can deliver energy solutions using a variety of fuel sources.
An interesting benefit, to users of the OP16 Turbo Gen Set, is the High temperature (573℃) exhaust gas which can be captured and used for process heating purposes.
The OP16 Gas Turbo Genset will therefor serve the interests of end users two-fold.
- Generating 1.8mw of power to energize plant.
- Generating very valuable high temperature exhaust gas which can be used for a myriad of applications.
Typically, OPRA Turbines are used in the following sectors:
Oil & Gas
- Recuperation of associated gas; stand-by emergency units; thermal enhanced oil recovery systems, etc.
∙ Waste to Power
- Combustion of syngas from different types of feedstock’s; combustion of pyrolysis oil from plastic wastes.
∙ Industrial & Commercial
- Paper mills, Tobacco, Rubber plants, Ceramics, Gypsum, Breweries, etc.;
- VOC destruction from shuttle tanks; cold ironing application, stand-by emergency units, etc.
The OP16 Gas Turbine Genset is suitable for a large range of fuels with high and low calorific values, as well as liquid fuels. The OP16 is able to be operated on a dual fuel principle where it can do this simultaneously or switch while on full load. These include natural gas, flare gas, propane, LPG, syngas, biogas, industrial waste gas, diesel, pyrolysis oil, ethanol and condensate. It may be that end users have a problematic by-product that can be used as, or converted to, fuel for the Gas turbine.
The high exhaust gas temperature has thermodynamic value for a number of applications such as heating for boilers, spray dryers, heating kilns, and general drying processes.
Enerprojects Gas Compressor Solutions
To operate efficiently, the turbine requires inlet gas pressures of 11 to 16 bar G which necessitates, where Low Pressure Gas is the fuel, the inclusion of a fuel gas booster compressor.
We are therefore pleased to introduce the Swiss based Gas Compressor manufacturer “Enerprojects Gas Compressor Solutions” whose partnership, as mentioned above, enhances our scope of supply and facilitates the inclusion, in any proposal submitted, of a suitably sized Oil Injected Rotary screw gas booster compressors or Reciprocating Packaged units where required.
Enerprojects Gas Solutions also offer skid mounted technology which can be used to capture flare gas and process it through Solid + Liquid scrubbers, a compression cycle, a drying cycle and a regenerative heating cycle, after which the gas can be compressed to fuel the OPRA OP16 Turbine Generator set, or for other applications.
Application of this Flare Gas process offers end users that flare gas to atmosphere, a partial, solution to problematic CO2 emissions during flaring.
Where flare gas is available, we offer a solution which includes utilization of the flare gas, as fuel, Generation of power and high temperature exhaust gas for process. This scenario effectively closes the loop for in house power generation by end users in this category.
