Managing Equipment Utilization in the Digital Age

REGISTER HERE

Tuesday, December 18, 11:00 AM, ET
Hosted By: POWER
Sponsored By: United Rentals

Managing equipment utilization has always been difficult, and in the Digital Age, equipment is valued as much for the information it can provide – about its location, use and performance – as for the task or tasks it performs. While some companies still manage rental equipment from a best rate or “3 bids and a buy” perspective, growing numbers are searching to leverage information in order to make more informed decisions on their fleet. In this webinar you’ll walk away with a better understand of where to look for opportunities to improve efficiencies on site and in the back office, what key performance indicators to monitor and how to leverage total control to drive productivity improvements.

Fast Start & Cycling HRSGs: Siemens DrumPlus Technology
VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted By: POWER
Sponsored By: Siemens

Fluctuating renewable power generation is structurally changing the electricity markets in almost every country or region globally. The market demands quick and flexible power generation, especially from Combined Cycle Power Plants (CCPP), which brings challenges to the HRSG design. Siemens offers a revolutionary HRSG design suited for fast start and cycling operations. The HRSG is designed so that peak stresses are significantly reduced. This results in a boiler that is capable of rapid cycling operations. Learn more about the Siemens DrumPlus™ HRSG and its proven references.

How to Implement a High Energy Piping (HEP) Program To Prevent Catastrophic Damages and Minimize Unplanned Outages
VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted by: POWER
Sponsored by: Mistras

Aging piping lines, corrosion, creep, and other factors can all cause HEP failures. Implementing a High Energy Piping inspection and monitoring program can help prevent high-temperature lines from disastrous ruptures. In addition to the serious safety hazards, these failures also lead to increased maintenance costs and extended unplanned outages.

Beyond the Manual Round in Power Plants…How to Cost-Effectively Increase Power Plant Asset Reliability
VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted by: POWER magazine
Sponsored by: Emerson

The operational realities of power generating units today are vastly different than they were years ago. Most units were designed for baseload operation, whereas today they’re being cycled to account for an increased renewable portfolio and low natural gas prices. We’re seeing more equipment failures because of these operating profiles. In years past, plants were well staffed, which made it easy to maintain operations. Today, staff and expertise are depleted and maintaining plant assets is much more challenging. Having a plan to lead your utility into the future will be more critical than ever to stay up and running.

Making the Case for Single Shaft Designs in Combined Cycle Power Plants
VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted by: POWER magazine
Sponsored by: Siemens

With benefits like lower cost and smaller footprint, single-shaft configurations have been the preferred configuration globally and have been gaining popularity in the US for one on one combined cycle power plant. This presentation will talk about the differences between single-shaft and multi-shaft, the benefits of each configuration, and when to choose one over the other.

Calibration: process control meets reliability
VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted by: POWER magazine
Sponsored by: Beamex

No matter how exotic your control system is, it is only as good as the data you get from your process instrumentation. Still, most power plants have not optimized their calibration processes. Typically, they calibrate too often or not enough, or follow long-established calibration procedures that have not evolved with the changing workforce and technology—any of which can compromise plant safety and reliability.

Hosted by: POWER magazine
Sponsored by: Siemens

The success of a business is increasingly determined by how quickly you can react to market forces and make smart decisions based on hard data. That’s obvious—what’s less obvious is how to do this. It’s not enough to simply collect data—it’s important to formulate questions the data can solve….to shift thinking from ‘big data’ to ‘big answers’ and to mine data for outcomes that matter.

Having a plan to lead your utility into the future will be more critical than ever to stay up and running. A key component in planning needs to be choosing the right technology for boiler drum and feedwater heater levels.

Condenser Tube Cleaning: Essential for Reliable Power Generation
VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted by: POWER magazine
Sponsored by: CONCO

Maintaining clean condenser tubes is of vital importance for reliable, efficient power generation. Two major problems result from fouled tubes: (1) Loss of heat transfer, and (2) Under-deposit corrosion. Internal tube fouling acts as insulation, interfering with heat transfer and reducing the efficiency of steam condensing, resulting in a lower vacuum (higher pressure) and less efficient steam turbine operation. Under-deposit corrosion of tube material can result in through-wall leaks, bringing contaminants into the high purity steam condensate. These contaminants can cause significant damage to boiler tubing and steam turbine materials and can even lead to a forces shutdown.

Overcoming CCR Challenges: Solutions for Ash Pond Wastewaters
VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted by: POWER magazine
Sponsored by: Evoqua Water Technologies

The continued implementation of the coal combustion regulations (CCR) in coal fired power plants is requiring the closure and dewatering of active and retired ash basins to be in regulatory compliance. Wastewater treatment can be customized to meet the unique requirements of each facility. Many options are available to reliably and economically reach the specific discharge limits of each facility. After addressing pond remediation, water streams that were previously sent to ash basins will need to be managed. These include Low Volume Wastewater, Coal Pile Run Off, and FGD Purge Water. As an example, Non-Chemical Boiler Cleaning Wastewater presents a unique challenge which will be addressed during the webinar.
