Monitor and improve your plant performance
A performance test is usually carried out after the construction or retrofit of a plant. It verifies that the plant can achieve its guaranteed parameters and function as intended.
A performance test can help maximise plant efficiency, reduce plant emissions, and minimise operating costs by identifying any shortfalls in the efficiency and capacity of the plant and providing recommendations for recovery and performance improvement.
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. Our experts give a credible review of guaranteed conditions, assess non-conformities and serve as expert witnesses for technical mediation and moderation. You will be able to gain confidence in your plant’s performance through reproducible, rapidly delivered results on plant efficiency, power output, consumption figures and performance parameters of major components.
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 on-site calibration of operational measuring devices.
TÜV SÜD offers emissions measurements and monitoring, fuel analysis, as well as noise and vibration measurements.
