Power stations when located on the coast pose particular challenges to designers, engineers and managers due to their high development cost and long asset life. In particular, careful consideration needs to be given to coastal change, future flooding and marine growth risks.
ABPmer is an established provider of specialist services to support power station owners and operators, from conventional CCGT to both old and new nuclear projects. Our services examine potential risks to these assets from coastal erosion and flooding through operational life and beyond, occasionally even for the next 1,000 years!
We also enable efficient design of cooling water dispersion from outtakes and intakes together with a full environmental impact assessment and marine licensing service.
