Power Plant Engineering was formed in 2003 in response to demand for an independent, responsive and professional engineering resource to serve the worldwide power generation industry. Power plants rely on a range of specialised heat transfer equipment to maintain fuel efficiency and plant availability, including:

  • Feedwater heaters
  • Surface condensers
  • Component and Auxiliary Cooling Water Exchangers

Power Plant Engineering has the relevant skills and experience to offer a comprehensive range of services with respect to all unfired heat exchangers used in nuclear, fossil fuel and combined cycle power plants.

The solution to the problem is an aspect of the problem. We focus on resolving the problem.

Whatever the demands of your project, Power Plant Engineering will provide access to the resources you need. Our aim is to provide a high quality response to your needs, wherever you are in the world . We do this by:

  • taking care of your unique needs on a custom project basis
  • understanding that every problem has theoretical, practical and human aspects
  • providing a service that is both personal and professional

The company’s principal engineers (Mr Tony Terranova and Mr Ian Gibbard) have a combined experience of 70 years in the field of heat transfer equipment and also have immediate access to a network of specialised professionals in disciplines from instrumentation to stress analysis. PPE does not manufacture heat transfer equipment and is therefore able to offer independent advice to end-users, contractors and equipment suppliers.
