The first Typhoon generator set fitted with ABB Alstom power’s dual fuel dry low emissions (DLE) system entered service in June 1998 at the Boots Company headquarters in Nottingham, England. Running on distillate fuel NOx emissions of 30 ppmvd at 15% O2 have been commercially demonstrated without water or steam injection. This paper describes the operating experience gained from the gas turbine manufacturers and operating customers point of view. The gas and liquid fuel burner configurations along with the operating concept are described. Discussion of the initial site issues encountered, the solutions introduced and the effect on operational impact are then explained in detail.
