You can now reserve your place on the POWERGEN International 2024 Technical Tour, which includes stops at Entergy’s New Orleans Power Station and Ninemile 6 plant site.
The Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engine (R.I.C.E.) technology at New Orleans Power Station (NOPS) is more responsive, offers additional flexibility and operates at higher efficiency than the traditional generation units. New Orleans Power Station has seven Wärtsilä 50SG engines that provide a total output of 129.5 MW to the New Orleans area.
Ninemile 6 is a 2×1 Combined-Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) site with two 180 MW GE 7FA gas turbines and one 241 MW Toshiba Steam turbine that remotely operates Washington Parish Energy Center, a Simple Cycle Gas Turbine (SCGT) site with two 195 MW GE 7FAs turbines. Ninemile 6 can complete remote rounds using SPOT – The agile mobile robot. Attendees will get an up-close view of SPOT and a demonstration of its remote use. Attendees will also tour the combined-cycle units and water lab.
The full-day tour runs from 8:00am – 5:00pm on Monday, January 22, 2024, the day before POWERGEN begins. Transportation and lunch will be provided.
Participation Cost is $130.
