Energy, Environment & Transport
This sector covers the generation and distribution of power, minimisation of industrial impact on the environment and storage and movement of industrial bulk materials.
Generation of power may be from gas, oil or nuclear as well as renewable resources such as biomass, hydro, wind, wave or solar. Impact on the environment can be reduced by process selection, energy-efficient design, treatment of emissions, efficient management and use of fuels and other consumables. Movement and storage of industrial bulk materials typically involves loading and unloading of shipping, tankers and lorries plus bulk storage of gases such as natural gas, LPG and compressed medical gases; liquids such as Oils and chemicals and Solids such as chemicals, foodstuffs, minerals, and building materials.
Elements of this sector come into all of our process designs. In any design we analyse the project requirements and recommend a solution that is economic, energy efficient and minimises impact on the environment. We are able to quantitatively analyse these factors and present a proven argument for the proposed solution within constraints set by the customer and the minimum legal requirements.
Why choose Technique Projects?
We typically get involved at the Front-End Engineering Design stage of downstream process projects for example: Liquids or solids storage depots, removal of contamination from furnace exhaust gases, scrubbing and treatment of chemical fumes, conversion of sludge to biomass fuel, inspection of tank farms and tank farm control systems and cleaning up aqueous effluent for discharge to sewer or water-course. Sometimes our consultancies are simply to frame a problem in relation to its severity, scale, the applicable legislation and the technical options available.
