“The IST unit starts up fast without any impact from the stress. That unit has now been 5 years with no corrective maintenance. That is a huge operational savings for us in repair costs and downtime costs. The other major benefit is we can run the IST boiler system dry, when we don’t need the steam for the augmented power. The IST unit is a high quality system able to withstand tremendous thermal stresses.”
