Is wet compression the thing in gas turbine power augmentation?

by Thomas Mee
CEO at Mee Industries Inc.
Wet compression power augmentation has been around for as long as gas turbines have been around. The technique consists of spraying atomized water into the inlet of the GT compressor where it evaporates and gives an inter cooling effect, which reduces the work of compression and makes more power available at the output shaft.

Current market conditions seem to be adding to its popularity, perhaps because wet compression allows operators to instantly respond to demands for more power. Mee Industries recently built seven wet compression systems for GE 7FA turbines in Florida and we are currently building four systems MHI 501F machines for a plant in Mexico. OEMs are also starting to embrace the technology.
