Tecnatom joins ADEX, an innovative software company that has developed a disruptive control technology for power plants. As partners, Tecnatom will offer the Next Generation
Technology that optimises the operation and maintenance processes of fossil-fuel power plants
What are fossil fuel simulation services?
Tecnatom has been offering cutting-edge simulation technology for 25 years, offering a variety of diverse products aimed at improving the safety, operation and efficiency of fossil fuel electricity generation installations:
- The development of replica facility simulators, also known as full scope simulators, which simulate plant activity (chemical, thermal, hydraulic, electric and logic processes) and recreate the main control room environment with localised and remote control panels via simulation, stimulation or DCS emulation tools. Replica or full scope simulators are used for operator training in normal or abnormal operation and provide support via plant engineering simulation.
- The development of graphic or virtual simulators for training, operation or engineering, with an entirely virtual operator interface.
- The update, upgrade and maintenance of Tecnatom and third-party simulators.
- Simulation support for the monitoring and optimisation of the plant’s performance.
Simulation support for plant engineering to check any design upgrades on the installation through thermohydraulic codes or the dynamic verification of logic changes or plant controls.
How do we develop our simulators and simulation services?
Tecnatom has a deep understanding of fossil fuel generation plants and processes contributing significantly to its respective simulation. Tecnatom also has vast experience in simulation technology with best-estimate or third-party codes such as RELAP5, TRAC_RT, etc. This enables them to more easily update and upgrade simulators developed by or with the tools of third parties.
Additionally, at Tecnatom we develop our own simulation tools such as TEAM_SUITE, which generates codes from a graphic friendly interface, as well as our own monitoring and plant performance optimisation system, TECSOLCEP, or our rigorous configuration control tool CMS/SICOSIS.
Our simulators strictly comply with the requirements outlined by the ANSI-ISA-S77.20.01 standards.
Our added value
Our extensive experience in electricity plant operation and regulation, process simulation, training and re-training of plant and I&C operators and assistants make Tecnatom the best solution for the integral development and maintenance of simulators, including its control rooms and distributed control systems (DCS).
We offer a wide, autonomous and global knowledge of processes, contributing custom-designed simulation solutions and technologies which are adapted to your needs and that meet all regulated standards without losing sight of your perspective and the experience of the users of our products.
We are leaders in simulation for power plant engineering support and consultancy, specifically in terms of plant design modifications, undertaking projects in thermal plants in Spain and various other plants on an international scale.
