Power generation

The power generation market is seeking solutions to a range of challenges, including the need for infrastructure renewal, as well as issues relating to security, skills shortages and an evolving regulatory environment.

Successful global power project development requires an in-depth understanding of modern power station engineering and design, as well as the institutional, operational, regulatory and contractual frameworks surrounding any project. 

Aurecon has a history of successfully developing and delivering power generation projects utilising a variety of technologies. These include conventional thermal generation utilising coal, gas and oil, to renewable applications utilising wind, hydro, solar and biomass. 

We provide comprehensive consultancy services to project developers, contractors, asset owners and lenders over the entire power generation project life cycle. We assist clients to identify and assess potential sites in the project development stage, conducting environmental impact assessments, managing consultation processes and permit applications and securing grid connections. Aurecon has international experience in managing project development and implementation in a proactive manner to prevent delays, simultaneously implementing highly effective project risk mitigation strategies. We also provide engineering and technical support with regard to existing assets, and technical advisory and lender’s engineering roles for power projects and asset sales. During the construction phase, we act as owner’s engineer to ensure that projects are delivered on time, within budget and meet the expected level of reliability for long-term operation. We provide advice on the operation and maintenance of power plants including benchmarking studies, advanced integrity assessments, and operation and maintenance strategies for new power plants.

Aurecon has long-standing relationships with a number of leading tertiary institutions in the renewable energy field. In wind energy, we have teamed with the University of Canterbury in New Zealand to leverage its mesoscale modelling capabilities commercially. We have provided specialist photovoltaic expertise on the ground breaking University of Queensland solar array project with its St Lucia campus hosting one of Australia’s largest and most powerful array of photovoltaic panels.
