  • Due Diligence Assessment: Survey and audit of a facility´s general condition (Plants assessments).
  • Proactive maintenance: measurement, audit and management.
  • Analysis and maintenance of steam and gas turbines.

Validations and assurance of CEMS (Continuos Emissions Monitoring System)

Monitoring, control and validation of the operation of CEMS installed in various power generation processes for legal regulatory compliance in each country.
Monitoring is carried out using internationally validated reference methods (EPA 7E, EPA 6C, EPA 10, among others).
Once a CEMS validation process is approved, the company must execute, document, maintain, control and report the Quality Assurance and Quality Control System (QA/QC) to be submitted to the local application authority or to internal requests.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND GREENHOUSE GASES

We support our clients in measuring the efficiency of the different emission mitigation equipment by performing inlet and outlet tests with a human and technical team with extensive experience in these projects.
ISO STANDARD 14064: Greenhouse Gases Management (Carbon footprint)

ISO 14064 is an international standard that establishes the basis for calculations for the reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, based on the quantification, monitoring, reporting and verification of emissions from organizations.
The aim of the standard is to facilitate the reporting and comparison of information on GHG emissions and the development of GHG emission reductions.
ISO 14064 consists of three parts and aims to establish a general framework for the measurement, reporting and verification of GHG emissions and increases or decreases in carbon storage capacity in energy supply systems. ISO 14064-1 sets out the general principles and guidelines for the development of GHG inventories. ISO 14064-2 specifies requirements for the validation and verification of GHG inventories and ISO 14064-3 establishes methodological guidelines for the valuation of GHG reduction projects.

The carbon footprint calculation can be applied to different elements:
– Product: In case the objective is to calculate the GHG emissions related to the life cycle of a product.
– Project: When calculating the greenhouse gas emissions of a project.
– Organization: When calculating the greenhouse gas emissions of an organization.
Note: In the case of calculating the carbon footprint of products, services or projects, however, the ISO 14067 standard is used.

The GHG project cycle is characterised by two main phases: a planning phase and an implementation phase. The stages of the GHG project cycle vary depending on the scale of the project and specific circumstances, including applicable legislation, methods, and GHG programmes or standards. Although this document specifies requirements for GHG project quantification, monitoring and reporting, a typical GHG project cycle may include additional elements, as shown in Figure 2.

ISO STANDARD 50001: Energy management system- Requirements with guidance for use
An energy management system helps organizations to better manage their energy use, thereby improving productivity. It involves developing and implementing an energy policy, setting achievable targets for energy use and devising action plans to reach them and measuring progress. This could include implementing new energy efficiency technologies, reducing energy waste or improving current processes to reduce energy costs.
– ISO 50001 provides organizations with a recognised framework for developing an effective energy management system. Like other ISO management system standards, it follows the “Plan-Do-Check-Act” process for continual improvement.

ISO 50001 provides a set of requirements that enable organizations to:

  • Develop a policy for more efficient energy use.
  • Set targets and objectives to meet that policy
  • Collect data to better understand and make decisions about energy use – Measure the results obtained
  • Measure the results achieved
  • Review the effectiveness of the policy
  • Continuously improve energy management

ISO 50001 is based on the continual improvement management system model that is also used for other well-known standards, such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001. This makes it easier for organizations to integrate energy management into their overall efforts to improve quality and environmental management.

ISO 50001 is designed to help your organisation improve its energy performance through better use of its energy-intensive assets.

Improved energy performance can provide quick wins for an organization by maximising its use of energy sources and energy-related assets, reducing both cost and consumption.
