We have one of the largest U.S. installed bases as well as more than 60 years of proven experience firing natural gas in utility and industrial fossil steam units. This experience includes firing natural gas as the main fuel, co-firing natural gas with multiple fuels, and adding gas firing to existing units.
Globally we have performed 26 coal to biomass conversions and co-firings. From small industrial sized units to utility as large as 800MW. Vast experience in new build biomass (built 73 new Biomass units).
- Lower SOx, mercury, particulate, NOx, ash and in the case of 100% conversion to natural gas, no SOx, particulate or ash- emissions- add biomass environmentally friendly
- Higher turndown ratio, up to 10:1 depending on gas supply pressure at the burner front and equipment configuration- flexibility
- Ability to balance fuel usage and leverage fuel suppliers- economics and supply
