“Astoria Energy burns natural gas as its primary fuel and it is critical for keeping the lights on in New York City. I believe natural gas will play a significant role in the US energy market for many more years to come. “Natural gas is a clean alternative to other fossil fuels and the Eagle Filters will contribute to the overall efficiency of the Astoria project”.
“We selected Eagle Filters based on a study that took place over a three-year period at Astoria Energy. We installed 4 competing suppliers of intake air filters and rigorously studied their performance over this test period.” “Prior to this study we utilized a lower quality filter and could experience a loss of up to 6 MW between turbine water washes. With Eagle Filters installed there was virtually no degradation of turbine output resulting in significant efficiency improvements.”
“Air impurities in gas turbines causes fuel efficiency to decrease up to 5% because of the effect these impurities have on compressor blades. Basically, the blades are too easily fouled. When these blades are fouled they need to be cleaned more often, so availability decreases due to periodical washing. In the end, power capacity can deteriorate by up to 10% due to fouling alone.”
Loudspring is a diversified portfolio comprised of a family of companies that through cooperation and resource sharing are stronger working alongside each other than they are on their own.
Eagle has the potential to soon become a highly cash-generative asset in the Loudspring portfolio.
In times like these the most important thing is to continue doing what we have always done and support our companies in every possible way we can.
