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 new stations tend be reducing in number. 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.

This 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.
