Turbines and associated machinery form a vital part of the process. The control
system must be highly reliable to achieve low down-time. The TurboMachinery control
system focuses on assisting the operator to keep the turbines in operation.
Measures to reduce exhaust emission to the atmosphere
Power-generation turbines are a major source of air pollution. Among the environment
damaging gases emitted by these units are nitrogen oxides (NOx), which disperse
across large areas.
Using the Åsgard field as an example, energy-efficient solutions are being adopted
to reduce pollution. Installing heat recovery units on turbine exhausts will boost
energy efficiency by 33 to 50 percent and substantially reduce emissions of carbon
dioxide (CO2) and other hazardous substances.
All turbines also feature low nitrogen oxide burners, helping to cut emissions
of these gases by 80 to 90 percent when compared with traditional units. Our process
automation solution is a vital part of these measures.
