Environmental and cost considerations have been driving major changes in the power generation market over the past few years. These changes are going to continue and probably accelerate!
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.
The basic requirements are the same whether the energy source is recycled waste, gas, coal or nuclear. 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. This wastewater therefore needs to be carefully treated before it can be discharged to our environment.
H+E has designed and supplied water and wastewater treatment plants for well over 200 power generation plants. Whether you require production of deionised water, condensate polishing, wastewater treatment or cooling water treatment and make-up, we will design and supply it on an EPC basis.
We also provide long-term servicing and technical support for the lifetime of the plant. This is on whatever basis you prefer, as well as occasional supply of spare parts. As a result you can be confident that your plant will continue to operate efficiently at all times. Therefore you can focus on your main target; the generation of power!
