Conventional power plants at TÜV NORD

Where electricity generation fluctuates, flexible conventional power plants make secure capacity available using renewable sources. They make a significant contribution to bring the supply of power into line with the current demand, so as to maintain network stability. The increased use of cogeneration minimises conversion losses and achieves high standards of plant efficiency. Such plants must always be available whenever their contribution to secure service performance is required.

TÜV NORD offers a comprehensive package of services for centralised and decentralised power plants for different technologies:

  • Steam turbine power plants
  • Gas turbine power plants
  • Combined cycle power plants
  • Motor power plants / CHP

Cogeneration plants

Cogeneration plants are often used where both electricity and heat is required, as well as acting as peak load power plants. Since cogeneration plants are highly efficient in the use of heat, their operation is supported by funding from the Combined Heat and Power Generation Act and the Renewable Energies Act (KWKG).
