Power

The Aveng Power Division drives engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) and engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) solutions for utilities, independent power producers (IPPs), and co-generation and waste-to-energy operations. Excellence is achieved by aligning with original equipment manufacturers and other leading engineering companies in the power generation and renewable energy sectors and incorporating the most suitable specialist technology to fulfil specific project needs. Aveng Power also provides solutions for materials handling and balance-of plant systems. The emphasis on industry-specific skills and experience is exemplified by the highly qualified technical and managerial staff employed.

A holistic approach to plant optimisation

Most co-generation, tri-generation and waste-to-energy projects require integrated solutions that draw on existing processes. Adhering to the original intent of an industrial complex requires a thorough understanding of the business and the process plant itself before a project solution can be developed into a viable project.

Renewable Energy (RE)
The Aveng Group is committed to the development and implementation of renewable energy power generation projects through Aveng Engineering. Current work with Acciona, an internationally renowned renewable energy independent power producer (REIPP) specialist, strengthens the team’s capabilities for new RE developments in the near future.

Within Aveng Engineering’s Power division lays the capacity to execute wind and photovoltaic (PV) projects on an EPC or EPCM basis, with original equipment manufacturers. The engineering and supply of the balance of plant systems and site infrastructure are undertaken in-house.
