Resource development projects in hydrocarbons, mining, refining and comparable industrial facilities invariably require power assets to support their operation. Customers in these resource industries face unique and complex power supply and generation challenges including proximity to established power networks, escalating electricity costs and reducing greenhouse and carbon footprint through power efficiency.
The remote nature of many resource developments requires the need to develop a power generation and network facility, entailing the creation of an islanded power network. Other resource projects are within close proximity to established power networks and are therefore capable of being grid connected. Whether an islanded power network or use of an established power network, resource developments require power solutions to be investigated, delivered and operated.
Escalating electricity costs and reducing their greenhouse footprint is a challenge for customers, especially in the industrial plant sector. These plants require power solutions both on the demand side, including efficiency improvements and on the supply side including cogeneration to fulfill their needs in a changing regulatory landscape.
