The Khor Al Zubair project is the largest U.S. Government-funded power-plant project undertaken in Iraq. Located in a remote region of southern Iraq, the Khor Al Zubair gas-turbine power plant is designed to supply electricity for hundreds of thousands of people.
TIAC system is installed to enhance power generation capacity and efficiency of combustion/gas turbines during hot weather conditions by maintaining the inlet air temperature at ISO condition and the power output at nominal value.
Turbine Inlet Air Chilling System prevents loss of power generation capacity when the ambient temperatures are above ISO condition of 15°C by maintaining the Inlet Air Temperature at ISO condition.
