Throughout the history of combustion engines, the Heavy Duty Gas Turbine stands out as the most fuel-flexible prime mover in the field. This gas turbine (GT) is suited for a rich portfolio of gaseous fuels that include: natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, coal and biomass-derived syngases, and a great variety of process gases with diverse compositions (hydrogen, carbon monoxide, olefins, etc.). Process gas fuels provide a promising array of alternative fuel opportunities in the major sectors of the industry such as the Coal, Oil & Gas, Steel, Chemical and Petrochemical branches. In an increasingly uncertain fuel environment, this significant match between gas turbine capabilities and the energy schemes of industrial plants can lead to further business opportunities.
