Helping Seabank Power Station prepare for the future

The challenge

The 1,140 MW combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power station, located in Bristol, UK, runs on natural gas and was built in the year 2000. Over the past 20 years, however, the increase in renewable energy has changed the way power plants operate. When power plants have to operate outside of their originally designed operations, plant owners need to monitor the impact the new operations have on the plant assets including the Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSG) and other downstream components. 

The solution: HRSG monitoring

GE's life monitoring system helps power plants and their downstream components, like the HRSG, maintain efficient and flexible operations despite their original design parameters.


Being proactive with HRSG performance & condition monitoring

Craig Allan, Plant Operator at Seabank Power Station, says GE’s HRSG life monitoring solution enables him to flag potential problems before they escalate. Monitoring HRSG performance and condition mitigates potential risks by providing live information on things like creep and fatigue that can occur due to increased cycling. 


With the market shifting, we have to be more flexible. This is an easy-to-use tool that keeps us informed of what’s happened in the past and what is happening in the present so we can make better decisions for the future.
