Reacondicionar infraestructura antigua, abordar la problemática de la emisión de gases y financiar nuevas oportunidades en las áreas de cogeneración y energías renovables son algunos de los desafíos que debe enfrentar el propietario del activo.

Las soluciones que generan nuevas ideas y logran una mayor eficacia operacional por parte de GHD son las áreas de generación de energía a base de residuos, instalaciones destinadas a la cogeneración, la aplicación más limpia de las tecnologías convencionales basadas en la combustión del carbón, y fuentes de energías renovables a partir de residuos.

Brindamos asesoría en una amplia gama de tecnologías para la generación y provisión de energía en varias áreas, como:

  •  Uso de combustibles fósiles convencionales en plantas termoeléctricas (por ejemplo, centrales a carbón de tipo sub-crítica o super-crítica, turbinas a gas alimentadas con gas de lechos de carbón y gas natural en ciclo combinado, y cogeneración)
  •  Energías renovables (hidroeléctrica, mareomotriz, eólica, geotérmica, solar y de biomasa)
  •  Tecnologías "verdes" emergentes, como la gasificación integrada en ciclo combinado.

Ayudamos a los clientes a enfrentar un futuro complejo en el que habrá más control y regulación.

Tasmanian Operational Frequency Standard Change,

GHD completed system studies, reserve impact and requirements of under frequency load shedding, special protection systems changes and negotiations with AEMC and AEMO to allow connection of a gas fired power station.


Taysan Copper Mine, Philippines

Taysan Copper Mine

GHD has examined the feasibility of providing power to the proposed copper mine in Taysan 110km south of Manilla and an associated port facility. The type of fuel, location of generation and transmission options were examined.


Kwinana high efficiency CCGT,Verve Energy

Kwinana high efficiency CCGT

GHD prepared the pre feasibility and feasibility studies to replace an ageing conventional steam plant with high efficiency gas turbines (GE LMS 100) and was engaged as Owners Engineer to assist in the implementation and execution


200MW Solar CSP plant engineering, Acciona Energy

200MW Solar CSP plant engineering

GHD was engaged to undertake a site feasibility study (geotechnical, water and gas resources), engineering designs (solar field and power block) and grid connection studies.


Frances Bay Zone Substation, NT Power and Water Corporation, Darwin

Frances Bay Zone Substation

GHD developed the concept design to secure power supply to Darwin. Detailed civil, structural, primary and secondary designs included the rearrangement of the existing underground cable network..


CopperString EHV grid augmentation

CopperString EHV grid augmentation

GHD developed a strategy and regulatory concept for connecting the north west mineral province to the northern Queensland network. GHD managed negotiations with State and Federal governments, Ergon, Powerlink, AEMO and end-user customers.


Sino Iron

GHD undertook the concept design, prepared the technical specification, route selection and detailed design for a 220kV transmission line and substation at Cape Preston for a large scale magnetite project in north-west Australia.


Mackay Sugar cogeneration plant

Mackay Sugar

GHD provided full line service to obtain the connection agreement, registration of the plant in the NEM, development of models and settings, connection negotiations with Ergon, R2 testing and plant commissioning.


EIA for a 2750MW 1912km HVDC transmission network, HidroAysen, Chile

Hidro Aysen

GHD prepared an EIA for a power transmission line spanning 67 municipalities along its 1912km length. This included 160km of submarine cable, converter and substations, and transportation.


Cullerin Range Wind Farm, Origin Energy

Cullerin Range Wind Farm

GHD provided technical services including R2 testing and generator registration in the NEM, power quality assessment and connection negotiations with AEMO and Essential Energy

Coal to the Rescue in Chile


Chile is a country with a heavy reliance on hydropower and gas fired combined cycle. However, a crisis in the supply of gas to Chile forced many of the gas fired plants to swap to expensive imported oil as replacement fuel. The long term solution for base load power is the development of coal fired power stations and more hydropower.

GHD’s Santiago office is playing a major role in the development of new power projects in Chile and nearby Peru with significant roles in environmental permitting and project development. One of these roles is Owner’s Engineer to Colbun for the development of a 350MW coal fired power station.

Cogeneration plants increase energy efficiency


Two new 140MW gas-fired cogeneration units in Western Australia were the latest projects delivered through GHD’s long relationship with leading energy infrastructure company Alinta.

The cogeneration plants deliver more than 75 percent energy efficiency, compared with 25-50 per cent for other power plants operating in Western Australia. The recently completed cogeneration units are located within Alcoa’s Pinjarra Alumina refinery in the south-west of Western Australia. The combined output of the units is 280MW of power, and up to 840tph of steam.
