We help to ensure the security of power supply, its economic viability and environmental compatibility
A reliable energy supply is fundamental for the sustainable development of every economy yet it poses a permanent challenge for power generation, as well as for power at the level of transmission and distribution.
Consisting of experienced and globally operating consultants, intec takes on the complexity of the planning, extension, rehabilitation, operation and control of electrical power systems by applying the latest technology, plus identifying the most cost-effective solutions.
Our technical and innovative concepts, coupled with our expertise in the implementation of Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contracts, allow our customers to adapt their electric power system to ever-changing demand and environmental conditions. We ensure that this continues to meet all energy requirements well into the future.
We also work on solutions for regions confronted with specific challenges such as dispersed demographic structures, considerable distances between power production centres and centres of consumption, or extremely low load density in rural areas.
Together with our clients, we define the tools to ensure reliable and efficient power generation, to increase the availability of the network, to respond faster and more effectively to malfunctions, and to reduce the risk of system disturbances and outages.
intec's engineering & design competence covers electrical, mechanical and hydromechanical works, civil works, power control, protection and telecommunication for all applicable power generation, transmission and distribution systems. Our services are not limited to technical aspects, but also include social and environmental impact analyses, health and safety aspects, financial management and organisation plus human development.
Network planning is a complex process encompassing collection and analysis of a large number of technical and non-technical data. The aim being to ensure reliable, stable power systems in the pre-sent and/or in the future.
intec offers professional methods for analysis and calculation of transmission networks for all voltage levels (from simple point-to-point interconnection to extra-high-voltage transmission networks), medium/low voltage distribution networks of any size (from micro grids to large interconnected power systems). Our experts provide power system modelling and analyses, grid integration studies as well as grid stability analyses using various modern and internationally-recognised software such as Siemens PSS®E and SINCAL, DigSILENT, PowerFactory, NEPLAN, WASP, ArcGIS etc.
intec’s team of specialists is also able to perform development plans for distribution and transmis-sion networks. This includes grid integration studies of conventional and renewable power plants, and subsequently to establish grid codes and other documents defining technical requirements and oper-ation rules for all energy market participants.
In accordance with the best engineering practices, we can provide our clients at the operation level of power systems with information or complete studies a day or several days ahead of operation. These studies include forecast modelling and analyses, net transfer capacity, generation adequacy analyses, protection coordination studies, solutions for high penetration of variable renewable sources, power quality, power system stability, congestions or short circuit currents to name but a few.
In the framework of all these activities, intec has the knowhow and experience to organise adequate appropriate training programmes on a diverse range of topics.
