Expert assessment and material testing

Didcot B gas fired power station, UK

RWE Technology International has a wide range of experts that focus on material testing for plants and power plant projects. To make sure the power plant will run smoothly after construction one needs to run several analyses to see if there are any damages of technical components. These damage testing and overall material assessments as well as research into new materials are tasks performed by our experts. Most results are obtained by operating tests in the laboratory using metallographic methods (spectrometric material analysis, digital image processing, scanning electron microscopy, light and stereo microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX)).

These services use the best technology, for example mineral analyses by X-ray diffraction and hydro chemical analysis, and it gives you an overall technical expert assessment of materials throughout the entire lifecycle of the power plant.
