One GE/Alstom GT-26 Gains 38 MW for JFE Steel Japan

JFE Steel Corporation is a power producer in Chiba, Japan. In 2003 they installed a MeeFog System on their GE/Alstom GT-26 gas turbine. It provided evaporative cooling and a small amount of wet compression. In 2016 they replaced that system with a larger MeeFog System. The flow rate increased from 42 gpm (160 lpm) to 134 gpm (506 lpm). The system is now capable of providing evaporative cooling and 1% (of the air mass flow) as wet compression spray. The new system provides twenty-four stages of fogging, and produces a 38 MW power boost.

Project Conditions:

Location: Chiba, Japan
Hot day conditions: 35° C & 40% relative humidity
Elevation: 10 meters above sea level
Max power boost: 38 MW
Mee’s scope of work: Supply of fog pump skids, nozzle manifolds, and supervision of
installation and commissioning

Fog System Design:

Fogging stages: 24
Operating pressure: 2,000 psi
Fog droplet size: 12 microns
Nozzle flow rate: 0.045 gpm (0.17 lpm)
MeeFog nozzle count: 2,976
Pump skid power: 240 HP
