New Build & New Technologies
DNV KEMA helps clients to identify feasible remedies for the short term and evaluate technologies and innovative solutions for the long term
New power plant build and integration of new technologies into existing power plants require a thorough screening of a large number of issues, ranging from technical to environmental and legislative to economic considerations.
Together, our reputation as an independent consultant, combined with our integrated technical and management expertise help clients to identify feasible remedies for the short term and evaluate technologies and innovative solutions for the long term.
Development of a new power plant is a complex task. Every plant has its own unique set of challenges. Once sanctioned, a new plant project will face a long chain of events, including considerable financial and technical risks. DNV KEMA can provide engineering expertise to realize the project, from the very beginning (feasibility) to commissioning (operational support).
Integration of new technologies, both in new plants and existing facilities, is an important field of DNV KEMA’s consulting activities. We constantly monitor the development of new technologies and their applicability to, and benefits for, our customers; this is especially the case for developments that increase plant efficiency and availability, minimizing environmental impact or fulfilling future emission requirements. Currently CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) developments have our focused attention.
