The engines are expected to run mostly on natural gas. Engine-based power generation will provide the flexibility necessary to counterbalance fluctuations caused by intermittent sources of energy into the grid, such as renewable energy sources. Objectives of the EHAZOP The EHAZOP focused on hazards potential resulting from the design, operation, and […]
