- Materials Science & Engineering Center
Altran has expertise in designing renewable energy systems including solar photovoltaic (PV). Our services include conceptual designs such as roof or site surveys, shading analysis, conceptual layouts, development of equipment lists, and life cycle costing. Detailed design includes layout and specification of modules, racking, inverters, and other system components, as well as interconnection to building electric services or the utility grid. Altran will provide necessary electrical, civil, and structural engineering services for both roof mounted and ground mounted systems. Altran also has experience with renewable utility-scale energy storage systems.
Altran Wind Power skills are mainly focused to give service to Wind Turbine Manufacturers & Wind Power Owners. Although we don’t cover the whole business cycle, we do have very specific skills along it. The most significant are detail strategic analysis of market niche for new players, expert mechanical design, loads analysis, wind resource analysis, wind farm design and O&M optimization. We have two delivery modes, we either send engineers to our clients sites or work with a fixed price project model.
Altran Solar PV and CSP Power skills are mainly focused on 3 areas:
- Strategy (Due Diligence, Technical & Financing support and M&A)
- Innovation, R&D, Technology and Product Development of Solar devices including mechanical, thermal, heat processes, materials, electronics & power electronics, electrical engineering.
- Solar Power Owners and EPC: Basic/Detailed Engineering, EPCM, Project Management, support to Construction supervision, support to Procurement, Commissioning procedures and Acceptance protocols, independent Audits, O&M warranties management, and Monitoring and Control systems development/integration.
Biomass can be defined as regenerative organic material that can be used to produce energy. Biomass fuel sources include vegetation, residues from forestry or agriculture, animal waste and municipal waste. In other words, biomass fuel sources originate from crops, wood, manure, landfill gasses and alcohol fuels. Altran has the capability to leverage our expertise in fossil generation and renewable energy systems to provide full service engineering associated with Biomass plants.
The renewable energy market has grown immensely over the past decade and will continue to have significance in generation portfolios. Altran’s expertise with solar and wind generation can help our clients take advantage of the benefits offered by the renewable energy market.
