Energy & Utilities

Any industrial plant depends, for its proper operation, on energy and utilities - fuels (e.g. natural gas, coal), electricity, water for various services (e.g. cooling water, chilled water, process water, boiler feed water), steam at different pressure ranges (high, medium and low pressure steams), compressed air, inert gases, and so on.

More than being necessary for production process themselves, utilities impact on the economics of industrial sites: according to the literature, almost 70% of the energy used on a typical chemical plant passes through utilities systems.

According to factors as production scale and proximity to other industrial facilities, utilities may be generated on site, supplied from a nearby, integrated site and/or from third parties.

Intratec offers a comprehensive online database of costs of producing +10 process engineering utilities, across several countries, covering historical series and forecasts.
