Optimizations and upgrades

EthosEnergy is the only independent provider with the design depth and responsiveness to deliver fast solutions through optimization and upgrades.

Improving your performance and output

Our optimization and upgrades portfolio includes a comprehensive range of products and services designed to deliver improved performance and output, plant life extension, reliability, and flexibility. 

Plant owners and operators modify and upgrade their existing equipment for a variety of reasons, including changes in environmental regulations, adjustments to the plant’s operating profile, plant relocation / reconfiguration, or expanded availability requirements.

Advanced online monitoring

Our accessible and experienced team provides engineered solutions by applying proven technology that improves start reliability, thermal efficiency, power output, availability, emissions, fuel efficiency, and capital cost savings.

We use monitoring and diagnostics (M&D) technology, including thermal performance models, condition-based monitoring, and advanced signal pattern recognition to deliver predictive maintenance services that minimize unplanned downtime and reduce operational costs. 

Asset optimization

EthosEnergy is an asset management partner, meaning that we have extensive capabilities and a depth of experience in delivering innovative solutions and optimizations. 

We do this while managing equipment assets, all whilst providing the support services needed to ensure safe, reliable, and cost-effective operations of critical rotating equipment. 

EthosEnergy also applies our industry-leading technical expertise, QHSE procedures, and management process to deliver the best service to you. 

ECOMAX® combustion optimization

Achieving operational flexibility is critical to maximizing output and environmental effects. 

The ECOMAX® combustion tuning platform provides an automated, fully customizable solution to achieve customer-determined operational objectives. This patented technology continually monitors and adjusts key combustion control parameters to maintain NOx and CO compliance, flame stability, and acceptable combustion dynamics.

Auxiliary and fuel solutions

Cost and quality of fuel can frequently shift, and composition variations can significantly influence emissions and combustor dynamics. 

EthosEnergy designs systems that provide operational flexibility to select gas, oil, dual, blended, or alternative fuel solutions. 

Compressor water wash

EthosEnergy has developed gas turbine compressor cleaning solutions that aim to recover lost performance while improving heat rate and unit availability. 

This EcoValue technology has both offline and online options and uses highly atomized water spray patterns designed to completely enter the compressor core. 

The patented and highly atomized EcoValue technology is individually configured for each turbine type. This process includes 3D modeling of inlet and nozzle positioning, and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to study droplet trajectory and evaluate and confirm nozzle positions. EthosEnergy’s equipment can be made ATEX EEXD Zone-1 classed for refineries and other hazardous area applications. 

Cyber security and regulatory compliance

EthosEnergy provides compliance management services for entities subject to regulation by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation. 

These programs are designed, implemented, and maintained with the goal of avoiding penalties for non-compliance, which can range up to $1 million per violation per day. 

Our North American Electric Reliability Corporation Managed Services includes Reliability Standards and Critical Infrastructure Protection Standards. Generator owners and operators are required to maintain prescribed policies and procedures and must document compliance activities at all times. 

Combustion system upgrades

The addition of new or upgraded combustion systems for older equipment can bring attractive gains in terms of improved availability, improved fuel economy, and increased power output. 

EthosEnergy provides combustion system upgrades to reduce the emissions footprint of generating equipment. These upgrades improve the availability of gas turbine operations by increasing combustion inspection intervals from an initial 8,000 hours to 16,000 hours. 

Integrated modular skids

An integrated modular is sometimes referred to as an auxiliary system. It is a self-contained system designed and engineered to meet functional specifications by incorporating the required mechanical equipment, valves, controls, piping, wiring and other components onto a single structural base. 

This design significantly reduces field assembly time and effort as only minimal piping, and electrical connections are required once the skid is delivered to the site. Added value to customers is our engineers’ expertise in component selection and knowing which components interface well with one another. 

Remote monitoring and diagnostics

The EthosEnergy Monitoring & Diagnostics (M&D) center monitors the performance of all turbine technologies, including: 

  • Equipment thermal performance 
  • Combustion dynamics 
  • Advanced vibration 
  • Predictive maintenance 
  • Dispatch optimization objectives 

Power augmentation upgrade

Power augmentation technologies provide the optimum balance of increased power output, minimal long-term equipment maintenance costs and maximum equipment reliability.

EthosEnergy provides a fully automated, PLC-controlled skid with a direct injection nozzle arrangement that delivers high reliability and a longer life span.

This direct injection system uses nozzles installed directly in the turbine bell mouth and / or cone section. Direct injection of water into the compressor is designed to incorporate the correct droplet size that is evenly distributed across the compressor throat.

The water injection points are located within the high velocity region which eliminates the concern for concentrated water at the blade root. 

Inlet fogging systems use an array of fogging nozzles placed downstream of silencers within the inlet duct.

Through an in-depth analysis of the technology traditionally used in this application, EthosEnergy has engineered a system that mitigates the design faults that involve spray nozzle positioning and over saturation of the airstream associated with most existing systems.
