1st Quarter 2013: Best Practices Awards
Producing power at lowest cost in an environmentally sound manner while maintaining high availability and reliability requires that plant personnel do the “little things” better than the competition. This special report will feature a collection of “best practices” gathered from gas-turbine-based plants across the Western Hemisphere. The best of the “best practices,” as judged by a panel of plant executives elected to the Leadership Committee of the Combustion Turbine Operations Task Force will be formally recognized at the CTOTF Spring Turbine Forum.
Deadline for space reservation and materials: March 8th
2nd Quarter 2013: Annual Outage Handbook
The COMBINED CYCLE Journal’s 2013 Outage Handbook will be an important asset in planning plant outages. Successful outages are key to high availability, high reliability, and efficient operation necessary to compete in today’s competitive generation market. The level of success is impacted dramatically by the amount of time invested in planning. This special issue will have wide bonus distribution to user groups and will serve readers all year long.
Deadline for space reservation and materials: May 24th
3rd Quarter 2013: Spring Users Group Roundup
Planned Users Group roundup articles:
- Frame 6
- Western Turbine
Deadline for space reservation and materials: September 20th
4th Quarter 2013: Pacesetter Plants
Advancements in state-of-the-art technology applied to gas-turbine-based generating facilities (simple cycle, cogen, combined cycle) will be presented by way of case studies. Pacesetting plants selected for their innovation will be new facilities that have installed equipment and systems to maximize, to the extent possible, efficiency, reliability, and/or availability and to minimize emissions.
Deadline for space and materials: November 15th
In Every Issue
Gas turbines, heat-recovery steam generators, steam turbine/generators, auxiliaries, controls and instrumentation, plant operation and maintenance, emissions control, water treatment, lubrication, and the latest user group meeting round-up information.
Why COMBINED CYCLE Journal
Market served: The COMBINED CYCLE Journal (CCJ) serves key personnel at combined-cycle, simple-cycle, and cogeneration facilities powered by gas turbines and located throughout the Western Hemisphere. In addition, our online edition serves electric-generation professionals who design, construct, manage, operate, and maintain these types of powerplants in Europe, and in key Asian and Middle Eastern nations.
Market Size: U.S. gas-turbine-based powerplants alone had an aggregate capability of more than 380,000 MW at the end of June 2012. They comprise the world’s third largest generation market. Only two countries—the U.S., of course, and China—have more total generating capacity than we have at gas-turbine-based plants.
Combined-cycle plants represent about 55% of the U.S. fleet’s gas-turbine-based capacity—simple-cycle and cogeneration plants the remainder. Approximately 70,000 MW of additional gas-turbine-based generating capability is under construction or planned, about three-quarters of that designed into combined-cycle facilities. In addition to business associated with new-plant construction, equipment and services providers have a reservoir of opportunities at operating plants. Consider that over the expected 20-year life of a typical combined-cycle facility, plant managers could spend as much as the original cost of the unit on O&M and equipment upgrades (not including fuel and personnel costs). For a 500-MW plant, that is about $25-million annually. Thus, the more than 500 combined-cycle units already operating in North America alone represent roughly $12-billion in annual business.
User Groups: The COMBINED CYCLE Journal has strong ties to the community of engineers and managers working at gas-turbine-based generating facilities. Our reach into the plant is facilitated by theCCJ’s close association with key industry user groups—the plant manager’s lifeline to timely solutions to plant problems. We regularly participate in meetings of the 501D5/D5A Users, 7F Users, Frame 6 Users, 7EA Users, 251 Users, Western Turbine Users, Combustion Turbine Operations Technical Forum (CTOTF), 501F Users, and others.
Members of our Editorial Advisory Board have years of plant management and/or consulting experience focused on plant O&M problem-solving. The board includes: Robert W. Anderson, formerly Manager of Combined Cycle Services-CT Operations, Progress Energy and now in private practice; Robert D. Threlkeld, Plant Manager, Tenaska Lindsay Hill and Central Alabama Plants; J. Edward Barndt, Asset Manager, Rockland Capital; Gabriel Fleck, chairman 501D5-D5A Users and electrical engineer, Associated Electric Cooperative Inc; and Dr. Barry Dooley, Structural Integrity Associates.
COMBINED CYCLE Journal Subscribers: COMBINED CYCLE Journal provides an opportunity for you to address this market in a highly focused manner. The overwhelming majority of subscribers to theCCJ print edition are technicians, engineers, and engineering managers who focus exclusively on gas-turbine-based powerplants.
