O&M services plus ECOMAX for Rockland Capital

Project Overview

EthosEnergy was contracted to provide full Operations and Maintenance (O&M) services plus installation of EthosEnergy’s proprietary ECOMAX® technology, by Rockland Capital in support of Michigan Power, a 1x1 GE 7EA natural gas fired combined cycle cogeneration plant in Ludington, Michigan.

The contract was for full care, custody and control operations, and maintenance including transition services, plus the installation of EthosEnergy’s advanced ECOMAX® auto combustion tuning technology. This is the second facility of Rockland Capital’s to have ECOMAX® installed and third in total.

Key Challenges

  • Seamless transition of day to day operations from the prior O&M service provider
  • The ECOMAX® technology will ensure the plant is online for longer and running more reliability to produce greater output
  • ECOMAX® can provide up to 3% or more of increased power output when desired
  • Reduced wear and tear on the combustion components extending parts life and reducing repair cost
  • Greater turn down performance allowing for reduced fuel consumption under low demand situations
  • Eliminates down time for manual tuning events all while maintaining environmental compliance

The EthosEnergy Solution

EthosEnergy’s ability to deliver a value-add offering not only through its O&M management system but through the ECOMAX® technology, which integrates seamlessly with the existing controls system and delivers increased plant performance, is a unique solution not offered by any other O&M provider.

Our long-term relationship and proven track record at the Tilton facility, at other Rockland facilities gave them the confidence that we can continue to deliver real value to the plant through our O&M management system. Through utilizing our approach in three critical areas, plant performance, regulatory compliance and commercial execution, we are ensuring maximum return on Rockland’s investment.
