“Hobré helps us dealing with fast transients in our gas quality. Even though the fast transients were small, they had a serious impact on the up-time of our generators”

Fuel gas quality measurements are getting more important in the power generation industry today. Increasing fluctuations in the fuel gas composition are jeopardizing stable energy production which ultimately results in increased maintenance costs and penalties due to violation of contractual obligations. Hobré offers complete, low maintenance,  packages (including sampling), which allows users to optimize efficiency and increase uptime, while maintaining operation within contractual obligations and prevent for unwanted shut-down or stage-down scenarios.
