Application By R. Buettner, R. Walterskötter and H. Schmidt,
Framatome ANP GmbH TGT1, Germany

The safety aspects of gas turbine power plant have become a major concern around the world, and many local safety authorities now require the analysis of leakage in the gas supply of turbines as a part of the approval to operate plants. Safety is our specialty at the Technical Centre of Framatome ANP GmbH. Capitalizing on our extensive expertise in power plant technology, we offer a multi-disciplinary approach to consulting with, among others, competence in material technologies and thermal fluid dynamics.

Over the years, we have gained comprehensive experience in the safety aspects of gas turbine power, with the analysis of many different plants and designs. In a recent project, we looked at reducing hazards due to hypothetical leakages in the fuel gas system of a turbine. The turbine was located in an acoustic enclosure which employed forced-convection ventilation to diffuse any gas leakage to below a specified concentration level. The specified level is defined as "under control" by the local Health & Safety department. If this condition is fulfilled, the risk of an explosion causing significant damage or injury can be considered as controlled.
