The energy infrastructure of industrial facilities has been working for many years relying upon the capacity allocated by designs from the Soviet era. Generally, investment was first made into the process flow itself, with energy infrastructure (which is represented by TPPs in case of large facilities) then being funded by the residual principle.
Today, there are more and more directors of enterprises who understand that the efficient operation of industrial facilities can contribute considerably toward production cost reduction. This is especially important for high power consumption industries such as metallurgy, pulp and paper mills and mining.
COTES Engineering has working experience in both large TPPs and within the energy infrastructure of industrial facilities. The purpose of our work is to improve the efficiency of energy infrastructure, as well as environmental and financial indicators. As a rule, work begins with an examination and energy audit of any existing equipment and revelation of operational limitations. During the course of a feasibility study for a retrofit, we consider application options for modern equipment and energy efficient solutions. After selecting the most acceptable and efficient option, COTES engineers develop the design and the detailed documentation required for further implementation.
The most efficient and cost-saving use of process resources can provide profitability and stability of any enterprise.
