Fossil power plants use coal, natural gas or petroleum to create steam to drive turbines that power electrical generators. Key plant components are the boiler, turbine, heat exchanger and high energy piping. Alternative power makes use of wind or water energy to drive generators.
Acuren inspects key components in both fossil and alternative power producers pursuant to mechanical reliability programs that seek to ensure the integrity of plant assets. Acuren uses both conventional and advanced techniques for the examination of boiler tubes, turbines, exchangers and other critical equipment.
Acuren developed BEAM (Boiler Examination and Inspection Module) software to store and report on boiler condition data.
