The power generation market has been undergoing major changes over the past few years and these changes are going to continue!
When we started working in this sector many years ago, the source of energy for power stations was coal, gas or nuclear. Now, the picture is very different, with wind and solar energy generating increasing amounts of our total electricity requirement. Of course, this has to be a good thing, but other energy sources are still required.
Whether that energy source is recycled waste, gas, coal or nuclear, the basic requirements are still the same. The energy source is burned to produce heat which then produces steam to drive a turbine and that steam has to be free from any contaminants!
It is the production of that heat which is where the requirements change. For example, the burning of waste creates a lot of highly contaminated wastewater that needs to be carefully treated before it can be discharged to our environment.
H+E has designed and supplied well over 200 plants for power generation!
- Boiler Feed Water Production
- Condensate Polishing systems
- Wastewater Treatment, including from Flue Gas Desulphurisation plants
- Cooling tower make-up plants
