2 The Optimized Cascade Process can operate at part load with 50% of its refrigeration turbine drivers out of service due to the two trains in one configuration.
3 This level of duct firing would not call for special metallurgy.
4 GTPRO® and GTMASTER® (www.thermoflow.com)
5 For supplemental firing cases, a temperature of 700°C was used.
6 The GT gen sets were operated at part load
7 Includes an auxiliary boiler to make up thermal load required
8 Gross power considered.
9 Most LNG liquefaction facilities are air cooled as water availability is typically a constraint.
