3 Cost Saving Facts of Inlet Cooling
Midland Cogen Venture (MCV) needed an economical and efficient way to lower turbine temperatures and gain power outputs. Their experienced engineers did their research, which led them to inlet cooling.
After MCV made the switch to a fog based cooling system, they were able to increase their power output by up to 20%. In addition they reported the following benefits, which all led to reduction in costs:
- Fogging allows for control of temps in a wide range of conditions
- Reduction in fuel consumption
- 30% reduced NOx emissions
MCV quickly discovered that inlet cooling was most cost-effective choice, so much so that they managed to purchase five more units with the rapid ROI that was generated.
