Cleaner burning than other fossil fuels, the combustion of natural gas produces negligible amounts of sulfur, mercury, and particulates. However, natural gas does produce nitrogen oxides (NOx), which contributes to smog.
The power generation sector is an essential service industry that uses technologies ranging from the mature steam turbine to pioneering marine current turbines. Since privatisation in the UK in 1990, the main objective of the sector has been profitability for shareholders, although issues such as health, safety, sustainability and fuel poverty have also become increasingly important on the corporate agenda.
The construction of coal and natural gas power stations is continuing at a steady rate along with older power stations being retrofitted with more effective flue gas cleaning systems. Both the community and environmental protection authorities are paying closer attention to both emission and ambient concentrations around power stations.
Our activities are closely interconnected with the energy industry. The precision casting foundry casts rotor and stator blades for gas turbines followed by precision grinding by the Industry Division. Furthermore, we also perform machining of shafts, complete blade attachment as well as subsequent assembly of steam and gas expansion turbines.
A gas turbine, also called a combustion turbine, is a type of internal combustion engine. It has an upstream rotating compressor coupled to a downstream turbine, and a combustion chamber in-between. The basic operation of the gas turbine is similar to that of the steam power plant except that air is used instead of water. The turbine shaft energy is used to drive the compressor and other devices such as an electric generator that may be coupled to the shaft. The energy that is not used for...
Whether providing high-efficiency, low emissions auxiliary boilers to coal or otherwise fired power plants across the United States, or heat recovery steam generators to natural gas fired turbine plants you will find Superior Boilers serving the needs of power generation customers for years to come.
The aerospace programme is one of the pillars of PBS Velká Bíteš. We have been designing and manufacturing aircraft equipment and devices for over 45 years. Thanks to the experience obtained, the development team, in collaboration with the production personnel, is able to address customers requirements in the modifications of both existing and new products.
Catalyst monitoring services use periodic performance testing and lab analysis to track the condition of newly installed catalyst. The goal is to extend the life of the catalyst and it begins by establishing a relationship between operating hours and the catalyst’s condition and performance. Testing and analytical services reveal any decline in performance, direct catalyst maintenance services such as chemical washing, and provide a basis for estimating catalyst life. The scope of catalyst monitoring is scaled...
Predictable and reliable, hydrokinetic energy is a promising lever for the energy transition. HydroQuest has studied opportunities for hydrokinetic turbine development since 2010. Our ambition is to become a global reference in the development of innovative technology to harness hydrokinetic resources. This is a new alternative energy supply as promoted by the Energy Transition law to encourage renewable growth.
Turboden ORC can produce electricity by recovering heat from industrial processes, reciprocating engines and gas turbines. The power of Turboden units generally ranges between 200 kW and 15 MW electric.
