Emission reduction has become a concern for owners and operators of older gas turbines in Europe and around the world. New regulations are forcing operators to take the environmental impact of their operation into account. VBR Turbine Partners offers solutions to reduce emissions of your gas turbines and retrofits to comply with the new emission legislation. Our solution can make your (older) engine in compliance with the new European Industrial Emissions Directive (IED).

When a gas turbine is fitted with a traditional steam injection system a VBR smart optimization of this existing steam injection system will be the most cost effective way to comply with the IED.

End of life is not always end of life. Our emissions systems may provide just that extra service time you need.

VBR Smart Optimized Steam Injection

Traditional steam injection was a well known method to reduce gas turbine exhaust emissions. Unfortunately it is no longer possible to comply with the new, more strict legal emission requirements of the European Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) by simply applying a traditional steam injection solution.

VBR has developed a smart optimization solution to exceed the existing traditional steam injection systems in performance. This steam injection system is capable of reducing the exhaust emissions of gas turbines below the new emission limits of the IED.

Benefits of VBR Smart Optimized Traditional Steam Injection

Other solutions to reduce emissions are Dry Low NOx (DLE/DLN) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). Compared to these alternatives our smart optimized steam injection system offers a number of advantages and benefits:
Smart optimized steam injection benefits are:
Effective NOx emission reduction at all loads (full load and part loads);
Lower installation costs;
Lower maintenance costs;
Lower fuel costs;
Extended engine service interval time.
