Wind

Powering ahead with force

For over 12 years Ausenco in conjunction with its partners, have been involved in producing world-class wind turbine systems for our clients. With our global expertise combined with local knowledge and delivery, we aim to become a leading provider of installation and engineering services for the wind generation industry globally.  

The wind generation industry is growing rapidly, with new technologies and methodologies for optimisation of wind turbines emerging constantly. We understand that tightening commercial requirements means it is no longer enough to be able to install and commission a wind turbine, it is now essential to produce economical and innovative wind farms that offer significant financial return in shorter periods of time. 

Combining our skills and expertise in the resource recovery industries with our knowledge and experience in the wind industry, we offer our clients an alternative to traditional power generation in remote locations, which have a positive impact on their bottom line. 

With no obligation to technologies or licensing requirements, we have the ability to consider each project on its own merits and offer non-standard solutions and contracting strategies to enable significant benefits to be obtained for our clients.

Our service capabilities include expertise in:

  • preliminary project analysis and engineering
  • meteorological station design
  • environmental resource studies and impact assessments
  • community consultation and engagement
  • permitting and regulatory approvals
  • geotechnical
  • civil mechanical and electrical engineering design
  • erection and construction
    • civil works
    • logistics 
    • foundation systems
    • turbine installation
    • balance of plant

Biomass

Fuelling alternative energy solutions for the future

Ausenco has a long history in biomass power generation. Since 1948, we have made beneficial use of wood waste, paper waste, biogas and mixed fuels in installations up to 90 MW in size. Our experience base in processes and integrating power and process solutions provides us with an advantage in offering ingenious solutions for our clients’ biomass needs.

At Ausenco, we understand that there are key differences between biomass and conventional coal- and gas-fired power generation, which make the utilisation of biomass more complex. We have the required skills and expertise in materials handling and process technology to power our clients’ biomass projects and the knowledge to overcome any storage, controls and process issues. 

Our service capabilities include expertise in:

  • preliminary project analysis and engineering
  • environmental resource studies and impact assessments
  • community consultation and engagement
  • permitting and regulatory approvals
  • geotechnical
  • specialised thermal engineering
    • fluidised bed and conventional grate boilers

Waste to energy

Ingenious solutions in waste to energy

Waste heat recovery projects are often complex and require ingenious solutions to complex problems. Ausenco has successfully recovered heat less than from 30ºC waste sewage sources, as well as developing practical solutions to recovering 900ºC heat, which is laden with explosive gas, fast travelling grit and corrosive gases. 

Waste heat recovery can provide an excellent, reliable, base load source of energy, with no fuel cost, which can improve the base process from which it is drawn providing a viable alternative to more conventional methods.
