This paper presents a unique application of two 14,200-hp gas turbines and their associated waste heat-recovery boilers in a refinery modernization program. It summarizes economics, design, and operating experience. Special emphasis is placed on three unusual features: (1) oversized starting turbines used as helpers; (2) control of two drivers with one governor; and (3) use of gas-turbine exhaust as combustion air, backed up by a forced-draft fan running at full speed against a closed damper.
