Simple Cycle/Combined Cycle/Cogeneration
Sargent & Lundy has designed more than 150 combustion turbine units in the last 15 years. Our assignments include combustion turbine generation from many different sources in a wide range of applications that include simple cycle, combined cycle, and cogeneration. We have participated in virtually every capacity and in every contract configuration.
Our combustion turbine and combined cycle experience includes wide-ranging work with major equipment suppliers as well as with numerous developed designs. This extensive experience provides us with a current database for equipment capital costs and plant and equipment configurations.
The blend of knowledgeable in-house talent and broad market experience gives us the unique ability to optimize the cycle arrangement and conditions to satisfy various operational scenarios. It takes an exceptional engineer to maximize steam export capability while maintaining optimum electrical generation in a cycling and base-load environment. Sargent & Lundy is that engineer—we have the knowledge and experience to understand exactly how various equipment and systems must integrate to satisfy operational constraints.
