- Thermal Power Plants
Design and Engineering of Thermal Power Plants has been our core expertise. The capability for design ranges from less than 1 MW plant to large super critical plants with 800 MW units covering all types of fuels such as solid, liquid and gaseous fuels involving boiler plants with steam turbines, IC Engine Plants and Simple/ Combine cycle GT plant. Our clients trust and rely on our vast experience in offering services ranging from conceptual design through to site supervision and management of commissioning. We handle all engineering sections, managing the inter disciplines covering Process, Civil, Mechanical, Electrical and I&C.
Our engineers are well versed with the state-of-the-art technologies, the design standards and norms and the operating practices. This combined with the knowledge of all influencing factors, processes and planning steps contribute to our design optimization process as well as in assessment of plant performance.
In addition to technology and economic performance, we also take into consideration, environmental protection and sustainability, plant safety and operation & maintenance aspects.

- Coal- and lignite-fired power plants
- Gas turbine based Simple /Combined cycle power plants
- Industrial captive power plants
- Combined Heat and Power Cogeneration plants
- Waste-to-energy plants
- IC Engine plants
- Captive Power and Co-generation Plants
We have a long and widespread experience in design and engineering of captive power and co-generation plants for industries in the steel and metal, cement, paper and pulp, chemical and petrochemical, textile and other sectors.
Coal continues to be the major fuel source for most of the captive power plants. We have an experience working in coal, lignite, gas, biomass and various other fuels in designing optimum and reliable solutions for our clients. We are also working with a number of process industries as they move towards co-generation and we offer combined heating and cooling solutions, along with the power generation.
By offering detailed engineering solutions through a dedicated team on single and multi-package configurations, we take care of the complete client requirements and optimize their overall project costs. In addition to technology and economic performance, we also take into consideration, environmental protection and sustainability, plant safety and operation & maintenance aspects. These also extend to the latest regulatory norms related to emission control and efficient water management.
- Energy Storage
As part of development in renewable energy sector, the idea of energy storage is gaining momentum with the objective of maximizing the utilization of renewable energy. Fichtner India with the support of Fichtner Germany can offer services to cover all relevant storage technologies. These range from established technologies, like pumped storage hydropower, through battery storage, up to innovative concepts like molten metal and hydrogen storage.
The Fichtner Group possesses the know-how and the tools needed to tackle interdisciplinary assignments for all relevant storage technologies throughout the various project phases.
We support project developers, public utilities, lending institutions and investors in assessing energy storage projects under technical and commercial aspects.
- Environment Mitigation
With guidelines from Ministry of Environment for meeting latest norms for SOx and NOx emissions from power plants, we are working with clients for evaluating and engineering various technology solutions. These include Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD), Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) and Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) for reducing various contaminant levels in the emission. Our team can also offer engineering solutions for fly ash management and utilization, as per regulatory norms.
For a number of power plants and clients needing advisory services on meeting the latest environmental guidelines, we offer feasibility studies and technological evaluations, followed by owner’s engineering services. We are involved in basic engineering, bid management and evaluation, review engineering, project planning and expediting, quality management and inspections, and construction supervision services.
We also work with a number of EPC contractors in this field offering them pre-bid and post-bid detailed engineering services covering all functional areas, with the objective of design and cost optimization.
- Transmission and Distribution
We offer solutions to our client for substation and transmission and distribution projects through their lifecycle. We provide a range of expertise for substation and transmission line projects spanning feasibility studies for site selection and routing, basic and detailed engineering, procurement assistance, project management and site supervision for construction and commissioning.
- Our competencies include,
- Substation/ Switchyards( AIS & GIS)
- High-voltage and Extra High Voltage Transmission lines
- Grid control systems / SCADA
- Power System Studies
Planning and optimization of facilities for power transmission and distribution belong to our core activities. In this connection, we also develop tailored all-inclusive solutions for power transmission on all voltage levels. We have also been a reliable partner in HVDC projects assisting clients in detailed design and engineering.
In addition to electro technical and network studies, we assist our clients in grid expansion planning and optimization. We prepare calculations for network protection concepts. Subsequent to power failure analyses, we work out graded packages of countermeasures.
