Power Plant Consulting Services
We help clients troubleshoot and extend equipment life, prevent failures on existing plant components, and assist with design, analysis and materials selection for new plant construction. We help improve equipment reliability and quality processes through development of fabrication standards and specifications and equipment inspection programs.
|Our success in both nuclear and non-nuclear consulting projects in the United States has led companies and governments worldwide to call on us to solve their engineering challenges.|
Our engineering services include:
<Analysis- Turbine Blade Failure>
Design & Analysis
We perform design and analysis to ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code. Through thermal, stress, fatigue, fracture, and finite element modelling, we have analyzed components as:
<Analysis- Turbine Shaft>
Problem Solving/ Preventive Maintenance
Inspections and weld and material evaluations are performed to analyze power plant equipment problems, correcting materials, design, and maintenance issues. Potential problems include:
Assessment of the current condition of components as boilers, headers, and piping, ensures structural integrity, and lowers operating costs.
Plant Life Extension
Our engineers perform plant life extension services to enable power plants to reach their maximum useful lives.
We have performed engineering analyses and plant life extension in many applications including:
O'Donnell Consulting was founded in 1970 by William J. ODonnell in response to the needs within the power industry. He has co-developed patents which reduce residual stresses on pipe welds, and has
published numerous papers on Code development related to the nuclear power industry - building a worldwide reputation for problem solving.
<We have performed power plant engineering services for government and industry in the United States, Europe, Japan, Taiwan, and South America.>
