Global ROC Optimizes Emissions Control for a Power Generation Company in California

The Challenge

A Power Generation Company grappled with inefficiencies in their NH3 (Ammonia) injection system, impacting emissions compliance.

The existing system, utilized for Four GE LM6000 Gas Turbines and one Mitsubishi Steam Turbine, operated manually due to a prolonged reaction time of over 3 minutes to register changes in ammonia flow.

This delay resulted in erratic ammonia injection, causing emissions compliance issues.
