Growth in renewable energy generation along with the development of higher efficiency and flexible fossil fuel plants are increasingly seen as the key in delivering reliable low carbon solutions. Ramboll has the experience required to successfully plan and implement such solutions.
Ramboll offers a ‘one-stop shop’ of services based on a multidisciplinary approach to power generation. On behalf of our clients, we have designed and constructed more than 90 major power plants, including some of the most energy efficient plants in the world - and are instrumental in the ongoing conversion from fossil fuels to biomass.
Our unique position has been developed through detailed development and implementation processes at some of the world’s most leading high efficiency power plants. This includes operations and maintenance support, failure investigation, and power plant rehabilitation and upgrades.
Providing full project life-cycle services, Ramboll offers expertise in:
- High efficiency power plants
- Biomass and bioconversions
- Cogeneration (CHP)
Alongside our project lifecycle services, we provide specialist services at a detailed design and Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) level - including a complete range of services to support plant operation, maintenance and lifetime extension.
High efficiency power plants
Ramboll has extensive experience designing and implementing fuel efficient combined cycle and major thermal power plants, including expertise in supercritical and ultra-supercritical boiler plants. We offer our clients all services necessary for fuel and plant optimisation including comprehensive thermodynamic modelling of boiler and turbine processes, coupled with in-depth knowledge of plant and system design.
Biomass and bioconversions
A European trend in power generation is to convert coal-fired power plants to various degrees of co-firing or complete conversion, and to construct new units fueled with biomass such as straw, wood chips and pellets. Our expertise encompasses the full range of knowledge needed to successfully convert and build plants - from fuel receipt and logistics to supply of power and heat. All of which draws upon extensive project development and implementation experience, including specialist experience in areas such as boiler performance and emissions modelling, coal mill modifications, fire safety and explosion risk mitigation.
For both new and retrofit cogeneration (Combined Heat and Power) projects we offer our clients all the services necessary for fuel and plant optimisation including: turbine processes, heat accumulators and district heating systems - from analysis, planning and design to procurement, implementation, quality control and operation.
