EPC or Turnkey Contractor for
Electrical Power Projects
We are main contractor, EPC contractor, or turnkey contractor for thermal power plant from China. The thermal power plant can be of fossil fuel as coal and natural gas or even biomass and other HFO. Our main business scope is with the thermal power plant capacity from 2mw to 200mw. And the equipments are services are from China, so satisfactory and competitive.
We have draw our more than 20 years of experience from power transmission and distribution international market, we now focus more effort on emerging power generation market. Within one year, we have contracted two power plants contracts as main contractor one as thermal power plant and another is geothermal power plant.
We are a main contractor of power generation, transmission and distribution in the developing nations such as Southeast Asia, Middle East, Middle Asia, Southern America and African Continent.
Our power and electricity plant projects range mainly in the small to medium capacity sized from as small as 1-2 megawatts to well over 200 megawatts. The power fuel can be fossil fuel (gas, coal, oil), geothermal, hydro, and green energy sources for energy. we also provide turnkey project for standby power plant as diesel generator sets.
We highly welcome power producers from utility developers, industrial self-supplied power producers, to contact us for proponent and planning of small to medium sized power plants.
During Chinese central planning times, only state-owned-enterprises were authorized to cooperate or do business with foreign companies, so these privileged companies including SINOWAY, owning import and export licenses have been doing business with their foreign counterparts for years. During these decades, SINOWAY was almost the unique main contractor in electricity transmission and distribution industry. All the main equipment producers and consulting companies from China are affiliated to the Ministry of Machinery and Electrical Industry, which is now corporated as Sinomach, the largest machinery group in China. The Chinese manufacturers could only produce equipments according to orders offered by State Owned Foreign business companies such as SINOWAY.
Although China has entered new times of market economy, theoretically all the Chinese companies are allowed to do foreign business. But SINOWAY has accumulated much more experience and expertise in foreign oriented business than our newly authorized Chinese contractor or equipment suppliers. But in order to upgrade our international competitiveness and to offer our clients higher quality and wider scale of services, we are uniting all our main equipment manufacturers from China who have cooperated with for years or even decades to setup consortium called China-Power-Consortium to bid the power plants projects in the our targeted areas. SINOWAY acts in the China-Power-Consortium as the leading or prime member or main contractor. Combining the strengths and experience of each of these companies from China under one Group allows us to provide both services and critical equipments that are designed and manufactured by China suppliers.
Planning a new power plant requires a significant amount of planning to insure the investment receives of the sponsors or investors maximum economic rewards. By the term "main contractor or turnkey," this means we take the lead in the project development process, which includes;
We have our own feasibility study and design team working with us from China for our clients, so that we can verify and assess the exact investment volume for the planned projects according to China's equipment and service. In the study report and design we will provide detailed projects planning and proposal from very aspects, such as environmental, economic, governing policy, technical and commercial factors in an earlier stage so to avoid the risks which can be avoided or assessed. And we also provide measures and proposal to solve these problems through our expertise and even support from Chinese Government.
We have been working with thousands of suppliers for decades ever from the Chinese planning economy era when we were affiliated to the same governing Ministry of Machinery and Electrical, and through our efforts and close cooperation in the world market, we have achieved a lot of successful projects, which have won the praise and word of mouth from our customers. We always know how to hand-pick the most suitable suppliers for most advanced projects or shoestring buget power project no matter it is of several megawatt or hundreds of megawatt.
Our Chinese supervisors and consultants will be available at the power plant sites to work face to face with all the staff from suppliers and employers and other sides.
Even though we have the ability to undertake the civil engineering subcontracts, we suggest that the civil engineering tasks be contracted by a local civil engineering subcontractor for the sake to reduce the total investment from the sponsors. We can provide all the power plant’s design work, including the civil engineering design tasks or even civil engineering equipments.
All the equipments erection and installation and commissioning are our full responsibility.
Even at the planning phase we would invite our clients to manufacturers workshop to inspect the manufacturing facility and samples, they can go the workshop whenever they want in China. We call this as workshop INSPECTION.
The clients can test and exam all the equipment’ parts, material and machining tools or even the testing instrument or meters. All the equipments parts for the power plant are designed, machined and tested to most popular international standard or their equivalent standards for power plant. The final testing results will abide to Supporting documents according to QA/QC standards.
After completion, we will undertake a test on completion.
We will carry out the commissioning of the Power Plant in accordance with the program to be submitted to and approved by the Employer and also in accordance with the provisions of the QA/QC program.
As soon as is the unit operation tests are successful completed the performance tests can be started. We also conduct guaranteed performance and plant availability test to make sure the plant achieve ideal performance.
We usually design and construct the power plant for the operation life span of 20-30 year on normal performance which is the same in China. Sufficient consumable spares and essential replacement parts will be provided to cover the event of breakdown which would affect the operation on safety of the power plant during test and commissioning and life span of the whole power plants.
We also can provide daily operation management services and maintenance services.to the power plant
