AET can perform consultancy tasks, such as finding solutions for optimising the availability and efficiency of CHP plants or power plants, or providing advice concerning best available technology needed prior to construction of power and CHP Plants.
Through an operational analysis a review of an existing facility is carried out in order to uncover opportunities for improvement in areas such as efficiency, emissions, availability, consumption and performance.

- Collection of operating data
- Perform measurements if necessary
- Operating analysis
- Review report
- List of possible improvements
A feasibility report illustrates the costs and financial benefits of a possible investment in improved performance, a comparison between different solutions or for a required performance improvement (i.e. for emissions). Such a report can also deal with a change in operating conditions, such as a change of fuel, change in load, change in division between electricity and steam/heat production. Feasibility studies are an important tool for selecting and justifying an investment.

Inspections are mandatory and necessary to uphold performance, respect emission limits and repair after corrosion and wear and tear and fouling.
- Thorough inspections on site
- Measurements of e.g. wall thickness
- Inspection report
- Directions for maintenance work to minimise downtime
- Recommendations for future repairs and replacements
- Long-term maintenance planning
