Consultancy Services

AET can perform consultancy tasks, such as finding solutions for optimising the availability and efficiency of CHP plants or power plants, or providing advice concerning best available technology needed prior to construction of power and HP Plants.

 

Operating Review

Through an operational analysis a review of an existing facility is carried out in order to uncover opportunities for improvement in areas such as efficiency, emissions, availability, consumption and perfor­mance.


Scope:

  • Site visit
  • Collection of operating data
  • Perform measurements if necessary
  • Operating analysis
  • Review report
  • List of possible improvements

Feasibility Study

A feasibility report illustrates the costs and financial benefits of a possible investment in improved performance, a comparison between different solutions or for a required performance improvement (i.e. for emissions). Such a report can also deal with a change in operating conditions, such as a change of fuel, change in load, change in division between electricity and steam/heat production. Feasibility studies are an important tool for selecting and justifying an investment.

 

Scope:

  • Feasibility examination
  • Performance calculations
  • Estimation of investment cost
  • Estimation of operating cost
  • Feasibility report
  • Business case

Inspections

Inspections are mandatory and necessary to uphold performance, respect emission limits and repair after corrosion and wear and tear and fouling.

 

Scope:

  • Thorough inspections on site
  • Measurements of e.g. wall thickness
  • Inspection report
  • Directions for maintenance work to minimise downtime
  • Recommendations for future repairs and replacements
  • Long-term maintenance planning

Design and Calculation

 

Heat Balance Calculations:

  • Boilers
  • Combined Heat and Power Plants
  • Power Plants

 

Thermal Calculations:

  • Boilers
  • Heat Exchangers
  • Turbines
  • Cycle

Strength Calculations:

Prior to investing in a project, AET can assist with feasibility studies. The Helius CoRDe CHP plant in Scotland is a good example, where AET was involved in the whole process right from the beginning. The plant uses residues from whiskey production as fuel, which required special developed solutions. 

AET can perform reviews of existing facilities and suggest improvements
