Thermal Power Generation: From Feasibility to Design to Construction MWH is at the forefront of, and have a long track record in supporting clients in UK, Europe and worldwide to develop, construct, operate and maintain their thermal power generation assets. This includes power generation from coal, gas, biomass, waste and multi fuel or co-firing , and related applications including district heating and other heat reuse and optimisation options. Over a 20 year period, our key expertise and knowledge has been utilised on extensive commissions and projects including planning and permitting, concept/feasibility studies, FEED, due diligence, detailed design, owners engineer and construction roles across a wide spectrum of thermal plants and clients. This has resulted in us developing key expertise and knowledge in power plant development, design and processes.
â€œCritically we understand the issues, appreciate the needs and requirements in thermal generation, and can provide confidence in the development and delivery of the clients project, at whatever stage this is requiredâ€?
“The process of large scale power generation requires the use of water for a number of essential power plant processes, and modern water treatment technology and processes are critical to maintain the integrity and performance of the power plant” Technical Expertise & Project Delivery – Adding Value Our multi-disciplinary expertise and
