CCJ's ongoing coverage of its 2015 Best Practices Awards program continues here with summaries of selected methods and procedures used by 7F and 501F users to assure safety and top performance at their generating plants on a predictable and repeatable basis. This information is compiled in the following categories: fast starts, workforce development, O&M, performance improvement, monitoring and diagnostics, and safety.
Links are provided to access best practices profiled previously for F-class plants from the Class of 2015 in case you missed them. Coverage of the 2015 program concludes next month with submittals from Hartwell, Jack County, MEAG Wansley, Michigan Power, Mid-Georgia Cogen, Nueces Bay, Oglethorpe Power, Paris, PSE Ferndale, and Walton County. Details on all best practices are available in the quarterly Combined Cycle Journal.
