Innovation to Combustor Mapping Through Ultrafast Lasers

In the field of energy production, there is a need for controls and instrumentation in areas such as the combustor where the environment is considered harsh. It is therefore important that the instruments used in the measuring of various parameters (combustor mapping) in such an environment be able to withstand extremely high temperature, high pressure...

New Gas-Fired Power Plants in Phillipines

In 2017, the construction of two new natural gas-fired power plants in Batangas city will start. Within the operation of First Gen’s 414-MW San Gabriel power plant and 97-MW Avion Open-Cycle, the power supply in Luzon will increase by more than 500 megawatts. With a far lower carbon emission, compared to typical gas- and cole-fired...
