This industry deals with applications topics related to hydraulics, lubrication, cooling, fluid conditioning, service and balance of plant (BoP) topics related to conventional thermal power plant technology (steam turbine power plants, gas turbine power plants and gen sets). As well as solar, biomass and geothermal power plants.
In addition, projects related to power plant applications such as air, steam, diesel and gas filtration as well as flue gas conditioning are also dealt with.
Power generation from thermal power plants will continue to play an important role in the long-term when it comes to guaranteeing supply security. This power capacity can be achieved through new-build or by retrofitting old plant. In recent times, the industry has seen a huge increase in retrofitting in particular, thus necessitating, of course, improvement in plant efficiency. For the hydraulic and lubrication systems used, this signifies continuous product optimization, even at the component level, optimized and integrated product solutions and sustainable system cost reductions. For this reason, HYDAC provides a comprehensive portfolio combining technology, products and service covering all aspects of thermal power plant technology. In this regard, our key focus is on providing a complete fluid technology approach for our customers in the form of system solutions. We already offer integrated product and service solutions in all areas of power generation: from hydraulic control systems for gas and steam turbines, bearing and drive lubrication systems of generators, turbines and compressors, right up to gas and liquid fuel filter systems. Needless to say, an important part of an integrated solution in fluid technology is a comprehensive product range for service tasks like fluid monitoring and conditioning, for example. Provision of service units, measuring equipment and manpower for service assignments across the globe also forms part of our business.
