FAst CYcling Technology (FACY)
FAst CYcling Technology (FACY) is based on the idea of focusing plant design on an increased number of fast starts. It originates from market conditions regarding fossil power generation and from specific projects incorporating fossil power systems. In combined cycle power plants equipped with Siemens FACY solution package, about 40% of the rated output is available after only 15 minutes. Shorter start-up times reduce the amount of fuel consumed during the start-up of fossil power plants. The FACY package has the added advantage of shortening the inefficient start-up sequence and thus improving the start-up efficiency. Operators of fossil power plants benefit directly from significant savings in fuel and reduced CO2 emission costs.
