Get onsite performance engineering services to diagnose the root causes of equipment problems.
Typical projects include evaluation and resolution of boiler combustion problems, ESP collection efficiency problems, turbine capacity deratings, condenser performance, boiler feed pump capacity limitations, and feedwater heater performance problems.
GP Strategies’ highly qualified performance engineers, many of whom serve on ASME and International Test Standards committees, will identify any shortfalls in the efficiency and capacity of the plant and recommend improvements for recovery. Our performance test results can assist you in identifying and quantifying losses, minimizing or preventing future losses, and optimizing unit operation.
Expert Witness Services
Our Performance Engineering team offers more than 800 man-years of experience for personalized consulting services to maximize your plant’s performance.
Assess equipment deficiencies within the plant cycle through an onsite thermal audit. Our engineering staff can help pinpoint the difficulties that disrupt an efficient plant’s service. Using our VirtualPlant technology, we gain insight into the way your plant is operating to detect and quantify performance deviations down to the component level. The thermal audit is a cost-effective method to evaluate the condition of a generating unit using existing plant instrumentation.
GP Strategies performance engineers have extensive experience in the evaluation, selection, and procurement of instrumentation for ASME quality performance tests and for permanent installation in the plant. We can evaluate your instrumentation and provide recommendations for enhancements and augmentation of plant equipment.
