Backup Fuel Source Feasibility Study
A number of our clients have been asking for proposals on how they can reduce their dependence on natural gas. In particular, they have requested energy saving studies and proposals for supplementing their current natural gas fuel base with alternative sources of energy.
One of the projects that we recently implemented was a feasibility study for measures that would enable the combination of burning natural gas and heavy fuel oil on the grounds of the Chvaletice power plant in the Czech Republic. The study also included the possibility of installing LNG storage tanks and assessing the operation time of these reserve tanks during a shutdown of their existing coal-fired boilers.
