2016 CCJ ONsite: HRSGs, Issue 1

Deep dive on HRSG and cycle chemistry make AHUG meeting special
null Owner/operators attending the Fifth Annual Meeting of the Australasian HRSG Users Group (AHUG) held in Sydney, New South Wales, Dec 8-10, 2015, reported experiencing many of the same problems facing gas-turbine users the world over-some exacerbated by the relatively small size of the electric-generation industry in Australia/New Zealand. Conference content was digested by Consulting Editor Steve Stultz and reassembled into the 10 short articles below, each only a mouse click away, making it easy to locate subject matter of interest and extract information of value to your plant. more
