Our subsidiaries are present in India, Brazil, Botswana, Switzerland, Turkey 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.
STEAG Energy Services (India) Pvt. Ltd.
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.
STEAG Energy Services do Brasil Ltda.
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.
STEAG Energy Services (Botswana) (Pty) Ltd.
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.
STEAG Energy Services Schweiz GmbH (Switzerland)
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.
STEAG Ensida Energy Services Ltd. Sti. (Turkey)
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.
