We admit being fascinated to utilize the power of water for generating. Hydropower projects are challenging and require the full scale of engineering faculties. We are providing the engineering services for rehabilitation of existing units, upgradation and of course the “concept to commissioning” for new locations – no matter what drop height, how much water, unimportant whether it’s small or big.
In hydropower it is important to build watertight. Economic efficiency is the top priority. Therefore construction methods are already optimized in the planning phase. To use the shoring permanently, to realize/implement dewatering at the same time and to generate minimum ground disturbance are the result. Specialized knowledge in calculation, dimensioning and implementation is our strength. Hydraulics, statics, soil mechanics under changing flow conditions interlock. The transition from the structure to the subsoil and the waters requires a lot of experience in civil engineering. Paying attention to extreme discharges and thinking ahead of alternatives are virtues of the hydraulic engineering professionals.
Whether penstocks, weir locks, sluice gates, bottom drains, emergency closures, factory bridges or rack cleaning systems, all have interfaces to the component. The highest precision is required when components which are manufactured with a millimeter precision are combined with an accuracy in centimeters of the carcass.
The mechanical engineering such as pumps and turbines are firmly connected to the building. Custom work and accuracy are required. Optimization on the basis of water management and energy management data, efficiency, position of installation and maintenance behavior shape the result. In electrical engineering are switchgears the connection to the grid, generators set the speeds. Whether synchronous or asynchronous, air- or water-cooled, the design must be carried out with the best possible use of the operating options. From concept to commissioning – WE ACCOMPANY YOUR PROJECT.
Knowledge of the biological and thermal processes greatly facilitates the use of biomass. The caloric value, combustible content, temperature range and technical processes must be coordinated and work optimally. The possibilities of combining the energy cycle and the material cycle in a technically meaningful way offer a rich field of activity. Regrowth means making natural plant growth technically usable.
Biomass cogeneration plants
Electrical energy is generated by combusting solid biomass. Heat supply and power generation can be found in biomass steam power plants, thermal biomass gasification plants up to ORC plants. Biomass cogeneration plants can additionally provide heat for use as local-, district- or process heat.
Biomass power plants
Here electrical energy is generated with similar or even the same methods as it is with biomass cogeneration plants. However the waste heat cannot be used and is therefore released into the atmosphere.
Photovoltaic systems (PV systems)
In the technical process of photovoltaics, solar energy, the so-called solar energy, is produced from solar radiation. Making solar energy economically viable could cover most of our energy needs worldwide. A multiple of today’s and tomorrow’s energy needs provides our planet Earth every day. The storage of this energy is and remains the solution of all our energetic future problems.
Solar Thermal Energy/Solar heat
With solar thermal energy, the demand for heat can be covered, whether for industrial or technical plant. The big advantage of using solar thermal energy is the application of decades-proven and very efficient technology. We supervise your project over all phases of service. The use of thermal solar energy on a large scale can save primary energy resources to an unimaginable extent, reduce the environmental pollution of the atmosphere by exhaust fumes and be implemented technically with high efficiency through the magic word „energy cycle thinking“.
Solar thermal energy can not only meet the need for heat, but also the need for cold during warm summer months. Here, the solar heat is used to operate chillers. Particularly appealing, as increased solar radiation in the summer months leads to particularly high solar heat. This in turn is used for cooling.
