Our activities

The installation for the Shell Pearl project consists of:

  • Six gas turbine installations (GT), each feeding a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG);
  • Two HRSG’s that are auxiliary fired by using FA fans. These HRSG’s are provided with an SCR to maintain the guaranteed NOx emissions;

The GT fired HRSG’s and the FA fired HRSG’s are provided with two duct burners in series per HRSG.

Duct burner systems

The duct burner systems are used for supplementary firing with natural gas and various types of HOG gas or a mixture of these gases.
