Lifecycle upgrades

Future-proof your power generation assets

Stay profitable, stay competitive
– with our lifecycle upgrades

The immense shift in the energy landscape makes it difficult to reliably predict changes when firstly evaluating the business case for a power generation investment – however, you need to be ready to adopt new ideas along the way. Changes, either in the operating environment or your power plant’s operations require an appropriate response in order to safeguard the business case and to ensure competitiveness.

Having a reliable partner, one who can ensure future-proofing and flexibility, and is capable of applying new technologies throughout the lifecycle of the plant, is therefore essential.

Make the most of your power plant

  • Do you know the true condition of your engine and power plant equipment?
  • Has your power plant been audited by a team of experts?
  • Are your maintenance routines based on the actual condition of your equipment? Could your operating routines be improved?
  • Have your electrical and automation systems been checked for obsolescence or compatibility with the grid system?
  • Could increased availability improve your business performance?  

Future-proof your existing assets

  • Do you know the risks and potential related to your current business?
  • Are you aware of upcoming changes in the industry and are you prepared for those?
  • Are you aware of the latest technologies and upgrades that could improve your business?
  • Do you have the opportunity to enter into new power generation markets, but feel the existing plant configuration is limited?
