SoLoNOx combustion technology is available as an option on most Solar turbines. SoLoNOx was introduced in 1992 as a low emissions combustion system. Gas turbines with SoLoNOx use dry lean-premixed combustion technology to ensure uniform air/fuel mixture for a clean combustion.
Customers worldwide have ordered and installed over 1700 gas turbines equipped with SoLoNOx for a number of reasons:
SoLoNOx technology has more than 35'000'000 operating hours and has saved over 1'200'000 tons of NOx emissions since introduction.
Both natural gas and liquid fuel (diesel #2/distillate or LPG) options are available.
Solar gas turbines with SoLoNOx are designed to meet most exhaust emission regulations throughout the world and cover a wide operating range of load and ambient temperatures.
Dry, lean-premixed combustion technology means gas turbines with SoLoNOx generally do not require downstream cleaning devices to meet emission requirements.
Gas turbines equipped with SoLoNOx provide the same power and heat rate as equivalent engine models with conventional combustion technology.
