Water footprinting of electricity generated by combined cycle gas turbines using different cooling technologies: a practitioner's experience

Efforts undertaken for reducing environmental impacts of energy production have been primarily focused on carbon reduction while the fact that energy production also requires water has been largely overlooked. During the last decade, and despite the fact that global warming still remains today the focus of many environmental evaluations, water scarcity issues have increasingly received attention. Despite the fact that recently, an increasing demand for large industrial companies to calculate and report on their water footprint exists, water resources have only recently been addressed in life cycle assessment (LCA) and their assessment still lacks wide application. The paper presents a practitioner's experience with respect to the application of three recently developed water footprinting methodologies that are considered as current-state-of-the-art.

Long-term preservation of shut down CCGTs

HOW TO ENSURE EQUIPMENT SAFETY?

Due to the current economic context, more and more Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) plants are being shut down. The periods of inactivity range from several weeks to years. To ensure that the components are preserved in excellent condition, Laborelec has teamed up with other GDF SUEZ entities to investigate the appropriate preservation conditions for the most critical equipment.
