Testing

Technology that optimises the operation and maintenance processes of fossil-fuel power plants

The importance of a test service in a power plant

Safety in electricity plants is one of the pillars on which the whole operation is based. Tecnatom provides comprehensive solutions with the aim of verifying the efficiency of the systems, equipment and components which can be found in the energy sector.

The fossil fuel test services offered by Tecnatom will allow plants to meet the legislation and standards established in the regulations, as well as issuing a status diagnosis of its components. This is essential in the avoidance of future incidents, adjusting its maintenance plans to the real condition of the equipment and having an accurate idea of its remaining lifespan.

At Tecnatom we have a wide range of services that include:

  • Motorized, pneumatic and withholding valve diagnosis.
  • Checking the overpressure of the safety valves.
  • HVAC (air treatment) system testing, including on site tests and laboratory trials.
  • Inspection and testing of supports and shock-absorbers.

Electric instrumentation trials.

How do we carry out our testing services?

Our testing services are performed via the installation of specific sensors on machinery and other components with the aim of obtaining a prime measurement of the characteristic parameters in different conditions.

Subsequently, with this information, a detailed analysis of the data is carried out which will help us to issue a precise diagnosis of the condition of the equipment tested or some of its components.

To perform these tasks, Tecnatom works with the most highly advanced equipment which surpasses the requirements demanded by the applicable international legislation. Likewise, Tecnatom also has a team of highly qualified, vastly experienced, professionals specialising in various test methods and techniques. Our objective is to meet our clients’ needs and provide quality work which increases the safety of individuals and the facilities.

The industry is currently immersed in the so-called revolution 4.0, which will drastically change the traditional concepts in many different ways. During the equipment and system testing there is now constant monitoring, which has a wealth of advantages. For example, we are able to see the status of instruments during the operation of the plant without having to wait for the programmed tests to be carried out.

What is the added value of the testing services offered by Tecnatom?

Online monitoring of equipment significantly reduces the workload during testing, improving maintenance tasks and optimizing the general efficiency and reliability of the electricity plant as a whole. This provides an added value for energy companies, not only in terms of production processes, but also in safety and cost saving.
