The FCS Approach to Power Plant Engineering Services

As power plant consultants, FCS has extensive experience in helping power plants deal with the complexities of aging equipment, the need to increase efficiency and profitability, and compliance with any updated regulations. Our power and gas plant engineering services are customized and cost-effective, helping your coal, oil, or gas-fired power plant set up programs for managing plant configuration and documentation updates.

Thermal Performance Consulting

You operate in a competitive environment with regulatory pressures. Improving your thermal performance increases your efficiency and reduces operating costs. FCS will help you identify improvement areas to enable peak performance and be independent in maintaining your thermal performance program. Services include:

FCS visits your plant, surveying the cycle and components. The visit includes walk-throughs to identify performance improvement opportunities, interviews with plant personnel, and a documentation review. We compile a detailed report with implementation, action plans, and reports of findings.

We develop performance testing procedures based on ASME Performance Test Codes and best industry practices. The result is testing and monitoring programs you can use to analyze and identify problems.

FCS experts can review the operation, performance, and maintenance of various power plant equipment to identify the root causes of any deficiencies.

Predictive and Preventative Maintenance Procedures
