Thermal Power

Companies that consult BBA for their thermal power needs benefit from a twofold advantage. Our team, which consists of multidisciplinary experts, offers innovative and environmentally friendly technologies to reduce the emission of polluting gases. We can also help companies convert thermal energy that would otherwise be wasted into a strategic power source, whether for cooling or recovery systems or for heat, steam or electricity generation systems. We excel in the modernization and maintenance of existing generating equipment as well as in the implementation and integration of new equipment. Our team can handle design, building, simulation, energy audits and process automation at any phase of a project, from feasibility study to commissioning.

STUDIES

  • Energy audit and technical assessment of heat generation and recovery systems
  • Comprehensive analysis of steam production and distribution systems
  • Energy audit and technical assessment of cold generating systems
  • Technical and economic analysis for the application of new and environmentally friendly technologies:
    • Impact assessment of biofuel use
    • Production of electricity and/or heat from organic waste
    • Cogeneration (biomass, natural gas, biogas)
    • Heat storage
  • Energy recovery from industrial residual heat
    • Heat recovery for preheating process water or air

DESIGN

  • Design, construction and simulation of thermal systems, inspection and supervision
  • Installation of cooling systems, thermal simulation and performance measurement

  • Energy distribution networks with constraint and seismic analysis
  • Modernization of existing facilities and process automation
    • Installation of new energy-efficient boilers
    • Implementation of new heat exchangers and boiler replacement strategy
    • Process automation (sand filter, softener, feed pump, conductivity control, etc.) and transmission of operation data from boilers and air compressors to a remote operator’s station
    • Centralization of steam generation
    • Energy recovery from furnaces to preheat air
  • Design of independent electric and thermal power generation networks
