Workstation" (Software product, Version 3.0, May 2005)
The State-of-the-Art Power
Plant Repowering Products (SOAPP-REPO) WorkStation version 3.0 is a
software application that integrates process design, costing, and financial
analysis for combined-cycle repowering of existing fossil steam plants,
enabling users to quickly assess the viability of a repowering scenario on a
site-specific basis. The SOAPP-REPO 3.0 application includes a re-use plan
for the steam turbines, feedwater heaters, and balance-of-plant equipment
and critical data inputs for the existing steam cycle and re-used equipment.

Federation of Electric Companies of
Japan, "Green Handbook Peer Review: Instructions for the Operation &
Maintenance Technologies and Efficiency Improvements for the Coal fired
Power Plants", (April 2007)
This textbook has been prepared by Japanese electric power companies as a
contribution to “PGT-06-01: Best Practices for Power Generation” one of the
activities undertaken by the ‘Power Generation and Power Distribution Task
Force’ in the context of the ASIA-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP on Clean Development
and Climate. The textbook describes important issues associated with
maintaining, and enhancing, levels of heat efficiency at a coal-fired
thermal power plants, and constitutes a summary of matters of which all
technicians working in power generation plants need to be aware. The 482
pages in this manual cover in depth the best practices for thermal power
plants for functional and operational control, maintenance and efficiency
control, and environmental preservation.
Siemens Power Generation, “Repowering”
The gas turbine (GT) in conjunction with a heat recovery steam
generator (HRSG) and a steam turbine (ST), makes combined cycle power plants
(CCPP) to the most efficient power generation facilities. Existing direct
fired plants can utilize this advanced cycle concept by adding a GT and a
HRSG. This so called repowering scheme makes the existing power generation
facility equally efficient as modern combined cycle power plant. There are
several alternatives to combine and integrate a gas turbine into an existing
steam power plant. A detailed assessment of the existing plant equipment as
well as technical and economic boundary conditions of a specific project
determines the optimal approach and the selection of the repowering concept.
