Power & Utilities
Power is in increasing demand globally and the Power and Utilities sector look for flexible and reliable contractors to help them. We help customers maintain a secure and efficient supply worldwide.
Whether it is in the construction of new installations, getting the most out of existing plants, driving new technologies, or tackling the challenge of legacy facilities.
Clean coal, CCGT, nuclear, renewable, waste-to-energy; regardless of the fuel source, Hertel is well placed to help customers in the construction of new energy plants worldwide. From construction services including access, insulation and painting, to E&I and pipespool pre-fabrication – Hertel are providing all of the services that are enabling the latest generation of energy plants to be constructed safely and efficiently.
In terms of mechanical services for instance, our state-of-the-art pipespool prefabrication facilities use a complete electronic workflow, providing detailed engineering services, as built drawings and electronically tracked materials.
We help our customers keep a reliable, predictable and secure production level through highly efficient maintenance services. In doing so, we help to minimise downtime during shutdowns and overhauls. As well as planned outages, we’re also able to react quickly in times of unplanned outages, generating substantial savings for our customers.
The growth of wind farms offshore poses a new challenge for operators: how to maintain hundreds or thousands of assets in such an inaccessible environment?
Hertel is here to help. As well as directly employing IRATA rope access technicians, we train them in the skills required to maintain wind turbines in our own training school. The services we provide include surface preparation, coatings and mechanical services – all designed to optimise the productive time of your assets.
Managing a project of any size requires an organised approach to maintain efficiency whilst simultaneously improving quality and safety. After a successful pilot, Hertel have rolled out a Business Improvement programme throughout our operations. The data driven approach we use drives out inefficiencies and optimises processes to make them as near perfect as possible.
As a true partnership would suggest we share our know-how, often working together with our customers to optimise their onsite logistics processes too.
Tackling the most complex decommissioning challenges
The safe and cost effective removal of Asbestos poses a real economic challenge for our customers. This is a specialism Hertel have build over decades, and today we are taking on some of the biggest Asbestos removal projects in the world for our customers.
Working in the nuclear industry requires specific expertise from trusted partners. With wide ranging expertise and experience of delivering projects in the most complex nuclear facilities, Hertel are delivering safe, predictable and efficient services, helping our customers to take on some of the most complex engineering challenges in the industry.
Above everything else for Hertel comes safety. We work hard to make sure that safety isn’t just in the minds of our people, but that they follow safe working practices too.
As well as following all safety schemes laid down by customers, we also follow a far-reaching programme of our own. This safety strategy is based on two elements: training and development for leadership, and workplace safety assessments that are both regular and intensive.
The nuclear industry requires even further skills and attention. All of our people are experienced in working in the industry, and we strictly back this up with specialist HSE and health physics personnel.
