Power and process plant equipment over time inevitably is subject to failures and deterioration with attendant loss of performance. Understanding and predicting these events and phenomena requires experience, obtained through an extensive background in field inspections and in applying the appropriate desktop tools such as Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and thermohydraulic process simulation. Tetra Engineering provides a full scope of analytical services to help you assess what has happened or predict what will happen to your power plant components.
We can tailor our services to your needs
Tetra Engineering provides a full-scope service for the modelling and operation analysis of all types of natural or forced circulation Power Boiler and HRSGs, including supercritical and once-through designs. This can be integrated into a full plant model to incorporate the steam turbine and steam cycle balance of plant.
Risk-based inspection (RBI) is an approach for ranking the priority of inspection and maintenance according to an assessed risk to the component or system integrity. One key aspect of any RBI program is to carefully select the locations for non-destructive examination (NDE) that are most susceptible to damage, according to the component's design and past and project operating mode, while considering the resources and time available during an upcoming inspection. Using multi-disciplinary experience and tools (thermal simulation, life assessment, structural calculations….) Tetra will help you get the most out of your NDE campaigns, by providing pre-outage planning, on-site supervision and post-inspection review.
