EU Fund Renewable Energy Infrastructure Project

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The EU has agreed on three ambitious pan-European alternative energy research infrastructure projects that will cost €1.2 billion as part of the roadmap of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI).

The new energy infrastructure projects will also see further investments within a 20 year time frame. The projects include funding to include a wind research facility in Denmark, a concentrated solar power installation in Spain, a nuclear reactor in Belgium and North Sea supergrid initiatives.

The North Sea project aims to develop transnational grid infrastructure in the North and North West Seas and to facilitate delivery of large-scale offshore wind projects to vastly increase the amount of renewable electricity generated from North Seas wind and waves. The North Seas Countries Offshore Grid Initiative will partner several European countries including Denmark, France, UK, Ireland, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

Minister Ryan commented on the memorandum of understanding saying “This is the best policy decision taken in the EU since the 20-20-20 renewable energy and energy efficiency targets.

“Ireland has been driving this agenda since the beginning. We have the best wind and wave resources in Europe, and political will to match.

“This infrastructural project is set to be one of the biggest transnational power structures worldwide. It will ultimately connect offshore wind farms in Northern Europe allowing countries with surplus energy, to export to those with higher demand.”

European Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, said, ‘Developing world-class research infrastructure in Europe, by pooling resources at EU level, is an important objective of the Innovation Union.

‘These facilities will enable ground-breaking research and innovation and ultimately they could help to secure the EU’s future energy supply. We need to bring research, technology, industry and market implementation closer together and that is the purpose of the European SET Plan.

Health and Safety Management

Friday, February 4th, 2011

The safety and wellbeing of RR Project employees, those who work alongside us and visitors to any site we are responsible for, is one of our highest priorities.

RR Projects operates stringent Environment, Health and Safety policies. Our methods of management have heretofore enabled us to achieve an excellent safety record across all the projects we have fulfilled. We set ourselves the target of zero lost time accidents/incidents at work. We consider this to be achievable on a year on year basis and to be a realistic and acceptable target.

By employing our qualified training instructors which use both classroom and practical training to share best practice, we ensure that all employees are aware of this policy and their individual responsibilities.

We continue to promote the highest standards of Health & Safety within the work place through regular inspections, talks and reviews with employees and clients alike. RR Projects Limited is accredited for ISO 9001:2015 and has gained accreditation for OHSAS 18001:2007.

RR Projects SE Asia

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

During the last 20 years, the South-East Asia economic region has experienced remarkable changes and made significant achievements in all production sectors and service activities.

The region records high economic growth and is a strong attraction of foreign investors. While the region’s economy greatly depends on agriculture, manufacturing and services are becoming more important. Thus, the power industry is becoming critical to its economy.

After 30 years of liberation,Vietnam has made enormous progress to become a key player in the region. However it is predicted to continue to suffer power shortages in 2011 and beyond even though the national power system’s current output is double that of five years ago.

It is to meet this growing market that RR Projects have formed a consortium with PetroVietnam Power Engineering, to provide consulting engineering, technical, supervisory and craft HR to the expanding Power market in the region.

RR Projects has been involved with this project from construction commencement in 2005. We continue to be the contracted provider to manage ongoing maintenance and outages.

For example, in early 2008, RR Projects carried out an emergency outage on the GE frame 9FA gas turbine, and replaced the gaskets on the cross fire tubes on the turbine combustion system. Our construction clients were General Electric and GAMA Power Systems, while the plant operator was RWE nPower. We had 30 staff engaged during construction phase.  Activities included:

  • Gas Turbine: Provided Mechanical Supervision on the GT 9FA installation
  • Filter House: Mechanical assembly
  • Inlet Duct: Installation
  • Fin Fan Cooler:  Mechanical assembly
  • Air Cooled Condenser: Mechanical assembly
  • Fuel Conditioning Skid: Mechanical Installation
  • Enclosures: Gas and Steam Turbines including ventilation system
  • Provided commissioning support and start up support
  • Steam Turbine: Provided Supervision on the retro fit of the mid standards
  • Gas Turbine: Fabricated and Installed Cooling Optimisation Piping
  • Boiler Repair Work on desuperheater and nozzles (P91)
  • General Site wide Mechanical Maintenance
