Electrical Power Generating Facility: Risk Assessment, Code Compliance Audit, & Gas Detection System Design


An electrical power generating facility operated a large boiler utilizing compressed natural gas as a fuel.  This boiler gas feed system has an existing gas leak detection system.


Some of the compressed natural gas feeding the boiler accumulated in an unsafe manner.  This event required an incident investigation.  Part of this incident investigation was a recommendation to evaluate the existing gas detection system.

Consulting Scope of Work

The owner’s project team contracted Ino-Tek to review the existing gas detection system and provide recommendations for any improvements.

Project Results

Ino-Tek provided a complete report detailing the precise reason for the gas detection system’s failure.  This report also detailed a number of steps that could be taken to eliminate any future failures and upgrade the existing system.
