Balance of Plant Design

Our clients are seeking alternative solutions to their energy challenges. At the request of the client, there are times where modifications to existing systems or equipment will yield better results rather than changing the entire system. For Altran, finding the optimal solution for our clients is what we do best.

For example, one of our clients wanted to generate additional electricity from its turbine. To do this successfully, it needs to produce more steam. To make sure it could handle the new design conditions from pressure to temperature, Altran analyzed the existing piping system. Our goal was twofold: determine whether the existing system can handle the new environment, and whether better performance can be obtained from the existing system. Preserving our client's assets and gaining better performance out of their existing systems are strategies we emphasize daily with our clients.

Our expertise in systems, components and materials means we can resolve these challenges quickly to maximize the value of a project and maintain the required levels of reliability and safety.

While some of our competitors simply issue plans and specifications, at Altran we provide a complete solution, from design documents through system testing, maintenance, and training to provide a product to satisfy your customer, not merely your engineering or construction department.

Modifications to existing systems help companies preserve their assets while, at the same time, enhance the company's productivity.

We have dealt with:

  • Vibration problems
  • Instrument and control systems
  • Digital upgrades
  • Piping systems
  • Layout changes
  • Equipment upgrades
  • Equipment replacements
  • Ash and Material Handling using Air Pollution Control Equipment changes as well as the elimination of Ponds
