Siemens AG and Göteborg Energi have joined hands in a partnership agreement. The goals is to test the state-of-the-art gas turbine technology. The technology allows the processing of sustainable fuels. This is in the Rya mixed heat and power factory that is presently powered by natural gas.
An SGT-800 experiment turbine has been set up at the Rya CHP (combined heat and power factory. This is as an initial step for the validation of 3D printed burners. This would after that enable testing of various fossil-free fuel in the factory.
The manufacture of gas turbine burners using 3D printing makes an absolute addition to expediting the study and development procedure. This is all for the latest technologies which add to the supply of greener energy.
Lately, the 3D additive manufacturing crew in Siemens Gas & Power started the growth of a new accelerated validation procedure. This is for new technologies and parts and now this procedure is already working in the Rya CHP factory.
The exceptional experiment engine is set up at the factory to support fresh developments.
“The Rya CHP plant plays an important role in Gothenburg’s electricity supply,” noted the CEO of Göteborg Energi, Alf Engqvist. “Working together with Siemens we want to explore the possibilities for the conversion of both electric power and heat production as pieces of the puzzle in our work for fossil-free energy independence.” He added.
It may help lessen carbon dioxide discharges by about ⅔. This is by changing a coal power factory into a contemporary gas-fired mixed cycle power factory like Rya CHP plant in Gothenburg. Emissions may be further reduced slowly through the co-burning of natural gas with a growing share of hydrogen or biofuel.
“In our collaboration with Göteborg Energi we see the possibility to verify the viability of several different renewable fuels, such as hydrogen, on a larger scale, first in Sweden and then in other parts of the world,” stated Thorbjoern Fors, CEO Siemens Distributed Generation and Oil & Gas Services Business.
“With this cooperation, Göteborg Energi and the Rya CHP plant are driving innovation toward new solutions and green power together with us. Our goal is to run the SGT-600, -700 and -800 gas turbine combustors 100 percent fossil free, for example with hydrogen, in the near future,” Fors explained.
“This is a unique cooperation between Siemens and a customer that can demonstrate the varied possibilities for sustainable and cost-effective fuels as our industry and societies look to reduce carbon emissions around the world.”
The Rya combined cycle power factory was presented turnkey by Siemens 2006 and comprises of three SGT-800 gas turbines.
