Oil-fired power generation

Power generation from conventional sources such as oil and diesel continues to provide a significant share of global electricity production, but fewer new stations are coming online. Our thermal power generation experience spans the complete range of skills needed to take a project from concept to commissioning.

Power generation from conventional sources such as oil and diesel continues to provide a significant share of global electricity production but new stations tend be reducing in number.

Our services includes feasibility and scoping studies, detailed design, plant specification and tender review, contract negotiations, project management, and involvement in plant enhancement studies during the operations phase.

We have used our considerable technical expertise to great effect as the lenders’ engineer on a large number of due diligence assignments during the project finance process for major power plant projects all over the world. We have successfully supported a variety of investors during challenging asset acquisitions.
