The demand for energy continues to grow worldwide. Major expansion and upgrade programs are underway in Asia Pacific and the Middle East. Most of our European clients are already fully engaged in a transition towards a more sustainable generation – spurring investment in renewables, as well as transmission and distribution systems.
Our consultants have a thorough understanding of the regulatory environment in which our clients operate and help them achieve their business goals and priorities. With our international office network and being part of Bilfinger, we have the experience, geographic reach, and technical skills to help clients expand into new regions, bring plants online, improve safety measures, and implement renewable energy programs.
Tebodin is a preferred partner for power and utility companies, as well as for the private industry. Tebodin supports them in a wide range of energy projects with cost-effective, efficient, high-quality solutions. Projects range from power generation, energy integration, and heat recovery through to transmission and distribution, we build pilot facilities, greenfield plants, and associated infrastructure, as well as assist our clients to expand capacity or extend the life of existing assets and plants. Project sizes vary from small scale renewable pilots to multibillion-dollar thermal power generating facilities.
Smart Energy Program
Did you know there are still a lot of options to save 30 to 40 percent of energy at most industrial and construction installations? As you may know, saving energy leads to a reduction in costs and CO2-emissions. Step into the Tebodin/Bilfinger Smart Energy Program, our concept for guaranteed energy savings, and enhance your competitiveness by decreasing your operational costs.
Project: BEC Twence
Location: Hengelo, the Netherlands
The biomass electricity power station of Twence generates electricity by combustion of organic waste materials, especially painted and used wood, wood-like parts of compost installations and rough parts of green waste. This 100% green energy production and contributes in a large extent to a sustainable future. Within the integral project team of Twence, Tebodin was responsible for several proceedings, such as the manufacturing of tender documents, guiding the contractor during the engineering and supervising the construction proceedings.
Project: District cooling
Location: Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Deep water source cooling is an alternative cooling system, in which water pumped from the frigid depths of deep lakes or oceans is used to cool buildings. Tebodin carried out a feasibility study for Nuon for using this method for the office area Amsterdam Zuidoost in the Netherlands. Also, Tebodin consulted authorities on city planning and project planning, did several permits, stress calculations, procurement of surveys, construction and tender documents.
Project: New installation for biomass handling and processing
Location: Borssele, the Netherlands
In order to reduce CO2 emissions, a new installation was built for receiving, storage, grinding, distribution and co-firing of biomass to EPZ’s consisting coal power plant. In this way, coal was replaced by renewable energy sources. Tebodin did the basic design, detailed design, tender documents, realization as a turnkey contractor for the total project and ATEX. The proceedings included making a risk assessment and we incorporated preventive and control measures into the design. Within the project, a new EPZ/Essent record of a thousand days without any accident was set.
Project: Upgrading steam infrastructure
Location: Geleen, the Netherlands (Chemelot Industrial Park)
EdeA is an industrial utility supplier with the production of steam as a principal activity. By the upgrade of the steam infrastructure of one of their main production units, Tebodin was responsible for the conceptual, basic and detailed design, the instrumentation and process control works. Also, Tebodin facilitated procurement, construction time scheduling, construction supervision and start up assistance. The latest power plant automation 7 upgraded and three new steam pressure reduction stations. In the project, Tebodin cooperated with Cofely as a construction partner of which the advantage was sharing knowledge and experience with partners: ‘Joined efforts deliver results’.
Project: heating networks for renewable energy
HVC is a modern utility company, owned by and working for shareholders: municipalities and water authorities. HVC’s mission is to help their shareholders achieve their ambitions in recycling waste and in renewable energy. For this purpose HVC lays heating networks in Alkmaar and in Dordrecht and asked Tebodin to play a key role in engineering the heating networks. HVC has partnered with Tebodin since they started in 2002.
When HVC wanted to expand the heating network to Heerhugowaard and Langedijk (province of North-Holland, the Netherlands), across long distances they asked Tebodin for engineering services: routing studies, basic design and detail engineering and stakeholder management.
The expansion of the network was a challenging project because of the number of stakeholders, the limited space available and the short timeline for completing the design. The biggest challenge was laying pipes through areas where people live, work and cycle. Successful stakeholder management was therefore very important.
Take a look at the video for the story of HVC’s heating networks for renewable energy.
Project: engineering of steam lines and the new steam turbine
Location: Delfzijl, the Netherlands
Eneco’s Bio Golden Raand (BGR) is the biggest industrial bio steam plant in the Netherlands bio power plant in the Benelux and is located in the port area of Delfzijl, the Netherlands. The plant turns recycled wood chips into green electricity - enough to provide 120.000 households per year with electricity.
AkzoNobel Industrial Chemicals is a significant consumer of sustainable energy from BGR. Therefore, in 2016 and 2017 Eneco and Tebodin worked together to make BGR even more sustainable by upgrading it for steam delivery to AkzoNobel. Changes implemented mean that from now on, the same amount of biomass produces double the amount of sustainable energy.
The project consisted of two phases, the expansion of the existing steam line system and the engineering of the integration of the new steam turbine. Altogether, it was a challenging but satisfying project, with engineering under tight time-constraints, with appropriate risk management.
The end result is satisfying: the plant now produces twice as much sustainable energy from the same amount of biomass, and thus contributes to national energy goals.
Take a look at the video for the story of the upgrade of Eneco's steam plant.
