Managing requirements across the nuclear supply chain
New build projects for nuclear power plants (NPP) across the world are constantly challenged by changing requirements, high costs and long project timelines. As a result, projects very often encounter expensive delays and complications. Find out how effective and efficient requirements and resource management can help owners and operators avert costly delays and other challenges in their NPP projects.
While energy producers around the world have recognised the need to adopt more efficient and sustainable energy sources to meet the demands of a growing population of consumers, the move to these new sources will not happen overnight. Existing conventional power producers still have an important role to play during the transition to alternative sources of energy. Find out how operators and owners of coal or gas-power plants to can extend the lifespan of their plants to meet future demands through a well-planned renovation and modernisation (R&M) process for turbines and boilers.
The fast pace of photovoltaic (PV) power plant development experienced over the last five years is set to continue. However, the dramatic expansion of the market resulted in the widespread use of inappropriate equipment, a lack of thorough testing, rushed construction deadlines and a shortage of appropriately skilled personnel. Learn about some of the common issues that affect the performance of photovoltaic plants and how to overcome them to maximise the plant's reliability and productivity.
As the overall cost of wind power has steadily decreased over the last two decades, wind projects are set to scale up significantly to meet energy needs. The future of wind power can be found in offshore environments, which can accommodate much larger turbines without being hampered by planning and design constraints imposed on onshore wind farms.
Recent evaluations of market trends show that the demand for renewable energy storage systems (RESS) and alternative energy storage systems (ESS) solutions is rising. However, these devices still lack harmonised standards and represent a huge potential safety risk for owners and operators. Learn more about how TÜV SÜD can help to enhance the safety and reliability of these systems.
