Performance Test for Power Plants and Energy Systems
Achieve guaranteed performance and maximise efficiency
The performance of power plants and energy systems is a crucial factor in determining a project’s financial success. Owners and operators need to ensure that the power plant reaches guaranteed performance and meets quality requirements.
We offer independent execution and third-party supervision of performance testing for all types of power plants (coal fired, oil fired, gas fired, waste-to-energy, biomass-to-energy, solar, wind, hydro) and components such as gas and steam turbines, boilers, condensers, cooling towers and gas compressors.
Execution and evaluation of acceptance and performance testing
TÜV SÜD reviews test procedures and programmes for verification of contractual guarantees, executes acceptance tests and measurements in compliance with the requirements of international codes and standards; and performs computation and evaluation of performance test measurements.
Our reports on test measurements include statements concerning the fulfillment of guarantees.
We also offer measurements and evaluation of condition after retrofitting, as well as periodic measurements and performance monitoring of the entire power plant.
Witnessing of performance tests
Our experts provide witnessing and third-party supervision of acceptance and performance tests as well as for power purchase agreements (PPA).
We carry out calibration of high-precision measuring devices in our accredited Laboratory for pressure and temperature.
Our experts can also carry out onsite calibration of operational measuring devices.
Noise/ vibration/ emissions testing
TÜV SÜD offers emissions measurements and monitoring, fuel analysis, as well as noise and vibration measurements.
