Feasibility Studies to Improve Plant Availability and Reduce Total Installed Cost in IGCC Plants

Performer: General Electric

Project No: FE0007859

Program Background and Project Benefits

This General Electric Company project focuses on studying the feasibility of improving plant availability and reducing total installed costs in integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) plants, by developing and improving operating methodologies, simulations, and control philosophies. The project targets reducing the time to technological maturity and enabling plants to 90 percent availability in a shorter period of time and at a lower installed cost. Specifically, this project will develop techno-economic studies using cost and availability data.
