Power Stations

Power stations pose particular challenges to designers, engineers and managers due to their coastal locations, high development cost and long life cycle.

ABPmer is an established provider of specialist services to the energy sector, including coal, oil and gas fired power stations. These services are also transferable to power stations reliant on less conventional fuel sources, including biomass plants.

Key services:

  • Coastal and flood risk management
  • Consents and licensing support
  • Sediment movement and coastal change
  • Plume dispersion and water quality

Selected Project experience:

Hinkley Thermal Plume - Cefas

Dispersion of a thermal plume from a proposed new power station in the Bristol Channel. Delft3D is being used to model the dispersion of a thermal plume and to investigate the evolution of the plume under a range of future possible geomorphological and meteorological scenarios.

Sizewell Thermal Plume - Cefas

Dispersion of a thermal plume from a proposed Sizewell power station. Delft3D is being used to model the dispersion of a thermal plume and to investigate the evolution of the plume under a range of future possible geomorphological and meteorological scenarios.

Intertidal analysis around Hinkley Point - Cefas

A highly comprehensive review of the biological and physical conditions across the intertidal habitats found in front of Hinkley Point Power Station.
