Mitigating Flow-Accelerated Corrosion with Film-Forming Chemistry in HRSGs

By Dale Stuart, ChemTreat Inc. Introduction A three-year-old combined-cycle power plant in the Northeast with an ammonia-only steam generator chemistry treatment program was experiencing high iron...

Leveraging Technology to Optimize Your Utility & Grid Workforce Management and Improve Customer Satisfaction

Watch Now!

Field service management is a crucial issue in today’s power and utility landscapes, as companies are measured on their customer engagement, communication and, most of all, duration of outages both planned and unplanned. When an electric utility’s scheduling and engagement is not efficient it can impact the bottom line. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Implementing sophisticated software solutions can help address these challenges. Join our webinar to learn more.

A Grid Disrupted: How Optical Sensing Manages the Chaos with More Accurate, Digital Measurements

Watch Now!

The grid is chaos. Building a more resilient, smarter, and safer grid starts and ends with better data. Optical sensing is a game changing technology, up to the challenge of measuring and monitoring information from the grid, more accurately and safely than legacy technologies.
