Our subsidiaries are present in India, Brazil, Botswana, Switzerland, Spain, Turkey, South Africa, and the USA. Each location presents its very own set of requirements and conditions. Fortunately, our extremely well-trained staff always work in familiar territory – in terms of both the regulatory framework and cultural, environmental and economic factors.
The economic upturn and infrastructure investments planned by the government make this country one of the most important markets of the future. STEAG Energy Services employs over a thousand people in India. Among others, we operate power plants in Hazira, Bathinda and Visakhapatnam. Engineering, consulting services and the rollout of IT systems for process optimisation are as much a part of our work as the training of skilled personnel both locally and internationally.
STEAG Energy Services (India) Pvt. Ltd. (SESI) offers engineering services for modernising and constructing power plants as well as operation services for thermal power plants and renewable energies. Moreover, it is involved in developing specific software solutions for monitoring power plant processes.
Since 2001, SESI has operated a combined-cycle power plant in Hazira in the north-west of India for our customer Gujarat State Energy Generation Ltd. The customer also continues to trust in the expertise of our experienced specialists following expansion of the plant to a total capacity of 500 MW. They do not only operate the plant but they also provide engineering consultancy services, applying our IT solutions to optimise plant operations.
Two hundred million people live in Brazil – a good two and a half times more than in Germany. The world’s sixth largest national economy strives for economic growth and increased prosperity. The country’s power consumption increases by approx. four per cent every year as a consequence – and this figure continues to grow. Brazil uses all resources at its disposal to safeguard its energy supply. Sixty-five per cent of the electricity needed is generated in hydropower plants, for example. Wind power also plays an increasingly important role: by the end of 2018, the installed capacity is to be increased from 3.4 GW to 10 GW. The expertise of SES is in demand here.
STEAG Energy Services do Brasil Ltda. offers plant operation and engineering services, and makes an important contribution to everything from the conception and construction supervision to the operation to enable Brazil to keep pace with the requirements of a rapidly-growing economic power.
After assuming operation management of the gas treatment plants owned by Parnáiba Gas Natural S.A. (PGN) in February 2016, SES do Brasil also began providing operational services for wind farms and hydropower plants with a capacity of almost 1,500 MW at the start of 2017. The plants are centrally managed from a control centre in Rio de Janeiro where STEAG Energy Services do Brasil employs around 100 experienced employees. These projects provide an excellent basis for SES to position itself both in Brazil and internationally in the expanding business field of the operation management of wind and hydroelectric power.
A dream became a reality for Botswana with the construction of the new coal-fired power plant Morupule B: to gain independence from electricity imports. Building delays made this goal a distant dream though – until STEAG Energy Services Botswana (Pty) Ltd. took over operation of the plant in 2014 following a mobilisation phase lasting just one month. Once all four blocks were stabilised, Botswana was able to meet its entire electricity needs through its own production for the first time in the country’s history.
We successfully combined the experience of our well-training staff from Germany and India with the local staff of Botswana Power Corporation (BPC). The outcome was a team comprising international experts from SES and around 250 Indian staff working together with 400 BPC employees in their large 600 MW power plant.
Switzerland is also facing major energy challenges – not least because of the impact of the energy transition in Germany: decentralised solutions and flexibility are required. Energy suppliers are increasingly investing in renewable energy sources.
Still, with its stable planning horizon of nuclear technologies, Switzerland is an attractive future market for SES. The countless reference projects of our subsidiary STEAG Energy Services Schweiz GmbH make it a valued partner in the fields of waste disposal and plant safety. And there is room to expand our activities in the fields of industrial customers and renewable energy sources.
During the construction of a new facility for the temporary storage of decommissioned power plant components (active storage) at the nuclear power plant in Leibstadt, Switzerland, SES took care of the rescheduling and construction of the power plant systems at the site in addition to the general planning, project planning, call for tenders and construction supervision. During the implementation phase, assembly and construction supervision services were also provided to successful completion.

Spain’s renewable energy approach is regaining momentum. In 2016, its share in the total electricity production totalled 41 per cent. Tenders announced by the government should also help to revive Spain’s renewables market.
SES is already extremely well positioned here. Following the acquisition of a 26 per cent share in the 50 MW concentrated solar thermal power plant (CSP) in Arenales near Seville, STEAG achieved an important milestone in expanding its renewable energies portfolio. Our Spanish subsidiary STEAG Energy Services Solar S.L.U. has assumed responsibility for plant operation. As an important reference project, CSP Arenales also opens the door to other solar thermal energy markets.
In Turkey, the expansion of energy generation is accompanied by the deregulation of the energy market. Increasingly, leading private enterprises are investing in generating and supplying electricity. One of the Turkish energy industry’s reference projects is STEAG’s coal-fired power plant in Yumurtalik to which SES engineers have contributed their extensive expertise since the very early planning phase back in the 1990s. Intensification of the close and long-lasting business relationship with the Turkish engineering company ENSIDA led to the establishment of STEAG Ensida Energy Services Ltd. in 2011.
STEAG Ensida Energy Services Ltd., offers the full SES portfolio of engineering services for constructing, modernising and operating power plants.
The energy needs of the biggest economy on the African continent continue to grow rapidly. They are currently mainly covered by fossil fuels. One of the largest coal-fired power plants in the world is located in South Africa. Medupi Power Station has been equipped with state-of-the-art technologies to minimise the CO2 emissions. With a total capacity of 4,800 MW, the power plant is operated by the national energy supplier, ESKOM. SES provides support in all matters relating to the power plant process. Our engineers are also directly involved in ESKOM’s energy efficiency programme and inspect all coal-fired power plants with a total capacity of 38 GW.
As a leading company in the electricity and power plant industry, STEAG EOH Energy Services South Africa (Pty) Ltd., a joint venture established in 2017 between STEAG and the technology and domestic service provider EOH, will offer a whole range of energy services. These include implementing projects in the fields of consulting, engineering services and operation management in addition to optimising energy generation plants based on conventional and renewable energies.
Our American sites close to Charlotte, North Carolina, are located in an energy hub centre for the American power industry. Around 80 per cent of all coal-fired power plants in the country are situated within just 800 kilometres. In the USA, our activities are focused on optimising flue gas desulphurisation and nitrogen oxide reduction systems – environmental technology forms the focus here. Hence we operate the world’s most modern and largest regeneration plant for power station catalysts in Kings Mountain, North Carolina. With our competitive/efficient regeneration process, we are able to achieve cost savings for our customers of up to 50 per cent of the new investment. In addition, on the West Coast, we are applying using our catalyst regeneration technology in biomass plants as well, with great success.
The joint venture CORMETECH, Inc. established in 2016 together with our partner Energy Capital Partners. Inc. provides the partners’ environmental expertise and offers catalyst management services for SCR reactors (flue gas nitrogen oxide reduction through selective catalytic reduction). Services also include consulting and plant optimisation along with retrofitting with a focus on environmental sustainability.
