Firing up with natural gas

Ausenco’s has diverse knowledge and expertise in gas-fired power generation, with plants ranging from a few megawatts to an impressive 1200 megawatts. Gas fired power generation offers fast installation, low capital cost, high efficiency, low water requirements, and reduced carbon footprint. We are also very familiar with conventional stationary boiler plants firing natural gas as well as high efficiency combined cycle gas turbine facilities.

At Ausenco, our engineers focus on optimising processes by quickly identifying the system which will provide the optimum balance of capital, operating cost and reliability. This in turn minimises the combination of Total Installed Capital Cost and Life Cycle cost which means an improved bottom line for our clients. We can provide our clients with customised solutions from large reciprocating engines offering excellent fuel consumption with moderate base loads, to open cycle gas turbines offering the best capital cost for peaking requirements, through to a combined cycle gas turbines which offers the best of both worlds. 

With continued work in the development of coal seam gas, shale gas and liquefaction terminals, combined with our knowledge of technical developments in the gas industry, we are well placed in the market to offer new and innovative alternative energy solutions to our clients globally.
