You Define Success. We Help You Achieve It.
We listen because we want to understand your situation, challenges, and objectives. Our process is designed to help you evaluate the economic, production, and environmental benefits of operational strategies, maintenance practices, efficiency gains, optimization of current equipment, and capital upgrades. We will help you identify and manage the intent throughout the process, meaning you are able to realize the results that you need through the most cost-effective methods.
A 1,500 MW Southeastern U.S. coal-fired power plant was able to improve the effectiveness of their fly ash evacuation systems and reduce the costs of operation and maintenance by an expected 50% through improved, integrated instrumentation.Read More
When the plant's initial assessment indicated MATS compliance would require high-cost upgrades, the future of two plants was uncertain. By modeling improvements over the entire process, Neundorfer identified a low-cost compliance program that would ensure these plants continue to meet their operational goals long into the future.Read More
The most obvious fix turned out not to be the best one when Neundorfer helped a utility resolve baghouse cleaning issues that were limiting its ability to run at full load. Use of a multi-phase planning process and holistic troubleshooting approach yielded an innovative solution that exceeded expectations.Read More
At a paper mill in New England, a long-delayed controls upgrade project was cost-justified within eight months of completion. The improved performance and energy savings from an ESP controls project saved the mill an average of $8,000 per month.Read More
A Midwestern utility had a problem: precipitator performance was sub-par, resulting in reduced power generation and undesirable opacity levels. Called in as a consultant, Neundorfer helped the utility identify causes and fix the problem through internal ESP modifications and upgrades to the flue gas conditioning and hopper evacuation systems.Read More
A Midwest power plant called on Neundorfer to use its analytical skills, field experience and modeling capabilities to provide a low-cost/high-value solution that will allow them to achieve LEE (Low Emissions Emitter) status while forgoing the need for expensive monitoring equipment and a quarterly testing protocol.Read More
Recently a cement plant customer was able to celebrate a huge "win" as a result of a collaborative strategy with Neundorfer. Following implementation, emissions levels tested at 70% below the new limit, filling the customer with a new-found confidence in their operations and helping them meet new NESHAP rules.Read More
Installing separate SO3 flue gas conditioning systems on two units at Duke Energy's Beckjord Power Plant fixed ongoing struggles to maintain acceptable stack emission levels. Neundorfer provided one of the SO3 systems, and helped Duke Energy save money by refurbishing a system for the other unit.Read More
A paper company in Wisconsin was contemplating expensive precipitator modifications to reduce emission levels. Through modeling we discovered the same result could be achieved for much, much less by making relatively simple gas flow distribution changes.Read More
When a metal processing plant experienced a major interruption, Neundorfer's team pulled out all the stops to assess the situation, perform a thorough analysis, and create an action plan that would get the plant back on line in only a few days while improving the reliability and performance of the unit.Read More
Chronic operating issues and costly technical support was plaguing a southern paper mill. There had to be a better way. By analyzing data and using modeling to generate insights into performance-based maintenance and operational strategies, Neundorfer engineers were able to identify effective resolutions without leaving the office.Read More
Neundorfer helped Reliant Energy's Cheswick station improve consistency and overall precipitator performance by installing upgraded controls and Precipitator Optimization System (POS) software.Read More
When Ecomaine replaced precipitator power controls and rapping controls with new technology from Neundorfer, the intent was to ensure consistent compliance with heavy-metal emission limits, and hopefully save some energy. After installation, the plant was able to get significantly more power into the ESP, and far exceeded its goals of improving collection efficiency.Read More
