The Energy of the Circular Economy
In a circular economy, cooperation is more important than ever. That is why we have a fundamentally different vision on the market of used power plants. Normally the life cycle of a power plant starts with the expertise, guarantees and services of a manufacturer. That is how – in our opinion – the second life of a power plant also should begin. When you invest in a used power plant, there must be someone who feels responsible for the technical side of your business case. Someone who doesn’t think in terms of making quick deals, but in sustainable cooperation. Being the connection between the previous owner and the new owner. Between existing performance and new business case. Between intended opportunities and desired securities. As far as we are concerned, that is the future of used power plants.
The circular economy is an economic system which describes the steps to be taken for sustainable reform of the production of goods and services
Seeding Energies - Sustainability Report 2016
REPOWERING SOLUTIONS is a British Company with focus of activity in the energy sector. We work in the worldwide energy market offering global solutions for investments optimisation.
REPOWERING SOLUTIONS has been formed as result of integrating several corporations with great expertise in a wide range of specialised areas on energy. We aim to offer an integrated, complete and specific solution for each project. Our services ranges from engineering, sale and distribution to logistics and transportation. We specially regard the recovery of value for industrial equipment, being of great weight in our projects portfolio
REPOWERING SOLUTIONS mission statement is the offering of those technical and financial proposals to answer those fundamental questions raised in any new project of energy generation: which is the best technological answer combining the best degree of efficiency and effectiveness with the least investment, the least investor risk with the greatest level of profitability? By asking this ourselves, we focus in acting in the best interests of our clients, putting their interests at the heart of everything we do.
SOLUTIONS FOR RECOVERING OF VALUE
REPOWERING SOLUTIONS offers SOLUTIONS FOR RECOVERING OF VALUE for those owners of equipment of electric generation and second hand equipment (included new equipment of failing projects) deemed for decommission. We are doing this by positioning and marketing the sale of the equipment in the assets secondary market.
Direct reuse of assets
Direct sale of energy assets.
Reuse of parts of the assets
Sale of parts of the assets for new projects.
Recycling of the total or partial asset
Recycling of the whole asset or parts of it.
Recovery of the area to its original state.
We recover assets environmentally..
Reduction of CO2 emissions
Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Wind Retrofit Increase production, reliability and lifetime of your wind turbine
Retrofitting of grid-connected wind turbines with stall and pitch control technology increases efficiency, reliability and enables compliance with grid code while increasing the operational life of the turbines
REPOWERING can improve the wind turbine production and increase reliability, leading to extended lifetime by using new components and technologies.
The technology used in the first wind turbines did not allow the maximum generation power to be achieved. Instead, today's optimized control and energy conversion systems are essential to achieve maximum production with high generation quality.
REPOWERING conditions (retrofit) old wind turbines with stall and pitch control technology turning them into full load turbines (variable speed), improving their efficiency and reliability while ensuring compliance with grid code and increasing their operating life..
Advantages of full load (variable speed) wind turbines
Significant increase in annual production (kWh)
Increased network code compliance avoiding penalties
Allows maximum variable speed to be achieved
Maximum production of reactive energy
Reduces mechanical stress on the turbine during voltage voids
Analysis, consulting, engineering, design and field implementation
Replacement of existing electrical components (capacitor banks, soft starters, etc.) with full load converter
Complete check of the generator and measurement of the winding resistances
Verification of the full load converter and generator assembly
Integration of the converter into the turbine control system
Assembly load test Full load converter and generator
Optional: System Monitoring System (CMS)
Optional: Web-SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System)
REPOWERING, ACTIVELY DEVELOPING CIRCULAR ECONOMY THROUGHOUT ENERGY PLANTS LIFE CYCLE
REPOWERING implements the circular economy throughout the various stages of the energy´s plants life cycle, to transform end-to-life equipment’s and parts into a resource for the production and maintenance of energy plants, with a view to reducing its consumption of raw materials.
The circular economy is based on a systemic vision inspired by the observation of nature. Nature produces no waste: everything is reused, composted and digested. Manufactured products too can be produced in a more energy-efficient way and brought back into the production process through repair, reuse or remanufacturing
REPOWERING uses circular economy principles to reduce the use of raw materials, since it provides an economic model that reconciles prosperity and the preservation of finite natural resources
DISMANTLING AND DISASSEMBLING
REPOWERING is a company with almost 15 years of experience on the market in a number of energy plants providing innovative dismantling, industrial relocation and reassembly services.
REPOWERING is now a global provider of world-class services in the field of dismantling, relocation and reassembly of entire energy plants.
We don’t just dismantle things. We dismantle them circularly.
Our circular dismantling process generates an exponential revenue compared to the traditional model. That is the reason our approach to dismantling is to focus on reemployment and reduce waste generation.
We investigate the best reemployment opportunities in secondary markets and find the most suitable for you.
We search for alternatives for those assets that cannot be reemployed and find the most beneficial solution for you and society.
We manage waste and look for ways to reuse it in a sustainable way .
We analyze the best way to dispose of those assets that cannot be recovered economically in order to minimize environmental impact.
