With decades of experience building, operating and continually optimizing our portfolio of over 11 GW of coal-fired assets in Europe and Russia, we understand the challenges of maximizing the return on investment from coal-fired plant

Over the past two decades we have built coal-fired plants in the Netherlands, Germany and Russia, converted several European plants to full or partial biomass firing, and managed the upgrade of coal-fired assets internationally.

Our clients benefit from our expertise in plant life extension, with our specialists responsible for major refurbishments that have ensured the extended safe operation of plants between 20 and 25 years on their original design life.
