Having a waste heat source within your process means there is a potential for heat recovery and conversion to low carbon electricity. Our team of engineers can help
determine the amount of savings that can be done by converting the recoverable thermal power to low carbon electricity. Our engineers will guide you in the collection of this basic data and then prepare an initial proposal on the technical and economic benefits of a Waste Heat Recovery system.
Z-Tech Consulting team is capable of determining the size and advantages of a WHR system, a full feasibility study report is prepared to evaluate the return on investment and funding options of a WHR system.
The rapid advancements in technology from ORC manufacturers continuously requires evaluation to ensure our customers are aware of the best available commercially proven technology. Our consultants work closely with the market leading ORC manufacturers to determine the operational challenges and the economic benefits of integrating a WHR system into an existing industrial process.
Integration of the ORC generator, heat exchangers, condensers, electrical supply, duct work, pipework and supporting ground works requires the greatest level of expertise. Our team's experience in specifying and sizing equipment is built upon the experience of a number of successfully completed WHR projects.
The successful project management of a Waste Heat Recovery system will cover a period of 4 to 12 months depending on the lead times of the ORC generator and heat exchanger equipment to be integrated into the process. Our project management team working both on and off site are involved in the planning process prior to contracts and involvement continues even after handover to the operating and maintenance team.
The installation and commissioning of a project continues around the customers everyday operations in preparation for the scheduled annual shutdown period, when integration to the waste heat source and electrical connection to the site infrastructure is undertaken. Integration into the site process and electrical infrastructure is completed over a period of 2 to 7 days dependent on size of the generating equipment.
