Optimising Power Generation (Remote Digital Optimisation)

Optimising plant is a continuous process as plant conditions vary due to changes in fuel supplies, ambient conditions as well as the operation of key plant items. Traditional optimisation services tune the operation of the plant to the conditions found at the time of the project. This can often result in non-optimum operation when these conditions change, such as from fuel changes or plant operational changes.

HRL offers tailored digital solutions to industry to help continuously monitor and optimise the operation of their plant and maintain operation at optimum conditions. HRL's digital solutions are built from our extensive knowledge of process efficiency measurements and hands on optimisation expertise. Our solutions are tailored to each plant to ensure the outcomes meets the client's need.

Digital solutions range from excel based efficiency calculations, to process analysis reports conducted by HRL, to a complete online performance and optimisation package which calculates the operation of the plant in real time and suggests potential operational improvements.

HRL's digital product offerings have identified poor combustion conditions due to inadequate air supply, leaking seals on large machinery and fouled cooling systems allowing plant owners to target these areas for maintenance to improve the operation and efficiency of the plant.
