we , have three SGT300 units installed for Power Generation application. Unit power ratings are (ISO) 7.90MW(e).
During summer season, the machine power output gets de-rated to a great extent due to high ambient temperature.  Typical temperature variations between winter and summer are from 15 deg C to 49 deg C. Due to this derating, machines are not capable of powering the connected load, and it is required to run additional machines to cater the requirement.
We are interested in deploying retrofit air cooling or fogging solution to be installed at Combustion Air Intake. This cooled air should result in increased capacity of machine during summer season., also it should not effect metallurgy of the machines, and system should be effective at higher Relative humidity levels.

Please suggest some possible solutions, please share details of similar solutions installed elsewhere in the industry anywhere in the world. Please also mention customer and site reference

You should speak with your turbine manufacturer or their representative.
