Pitchess Detention Center Cogen Gains 8.6 MW with One LM-2500 GT

Pitchess Detention Center (PDC) runs a cogeneration plant that produces all the electricity and steam needed to operate all the PDC facilities. During the hot months in California high temperatures were affecting power generation. PDC decided to install a MeeFog system to cool the inlet air and increase power. The system has been operating since 2009 with no negative impact on the gas turbine. The generator cooling air is also
cooled with fog.
