Florida Power & Light Co.?s (FP&L) St. Lucie power plant, a two-unit, 1,700-MW nuclear electric generating facility, selected Applied Radiological Control Inc. (ARC) for its turbine component cleaning project in preparation for non-destructive examination. The decision was made after extensive evaluation of cleaning principles and methods, non-destructive examination of metal substrates and a full-scale demonstration of ARC?s ultra high pressure (UHP) water-jetting process.

A Energy Ventures Analysis Inc. (EVA) study conducted for the Center Energy and Economic Development said that natural gas will be the preferred fuel for electric power generation in the 1990s. However, this will be reversed in the post-2000 period. EVA?s conclusion is that coal will become the dominant fuel as we enter the next century.

Anyone watching the gas turbine industry already knows that advancements in efficiency, output and emissions control are coming fast and furious. Federal, state and local regulations, the spotty demand for power, low capital requirements and fast construction cycles all have their effect on the demand for gas turbines. Manufacturers competing for sales realize that to maintain a viable presence in the market they must accelerate the product cycle and introduce new designs and technological innov
