Design, Technical and Engineering Services
Careful design of facilities can be critical to the overall usage of energy and the costs of operations. Often designs are based on least cost or first cost criteria, taking little account of life-cycle and long-term energy related costs. The ability to understand existing or planned operations and to develop practical, cost effective and energy efficient designs is critical to long-term success of most facilities. The careful and experienced design of energy production facilities is also critical to their long-term cost of operations and their ability to perform in a competitive marketplace. Careful selection of new or replacement equipment, taking account of the desired operational requirements of the facility is also a key to long-term viability.
