Tufts Cove 6 Waste Heat Recovery Project 2008
For the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board, Synapse performed an analysis of a Nova Scotia proposal to convert two existing simple-cycle combustion turbines into a single combined-cycle unit with duct firing. Synapse reached the conclusion that the Board should proceed with Nova Scotia Power’s proposed combined-cycle conversion without the addition of the extra 25 MW of capacity from duct firing. The efficiency penalty imposed on the plant through the addition of duct firing was found to reduce the economic benefit to the point where duct firing was not justifiable.
