OPTIMISING STEAMSHIP PERFORMANCE. METHODS OF REDUCING FUEL CONSUMPTION IN TURBINE PLANTS

In addition to part-power operation, steamship operators can take several other steps that will help achieve a further significant drop in fuel consumption. These include general maintenance and tune-ups, optimizing the thermal cycle and redesigning equipment. Simple tune-ups alone can result in a 5% fuel saving. Optimizing the thermal cycle and redesigning equipment require somewhat more effort and investment, but together they can reduce the fuel rate by as much as 14%. Order from NSFI as No. 22186.
