Projects and Plant Changes are often engineered by Contractors but they require steering, guidance and control to assure compliance with Vattenfall standards and site specific requirements and to ensure correct alignment with specific maintenance and operational requirements. For smaller plant changes, basic and detailed engineering may be performed by Vattenfall’s engineers themselves. As the energy sector is rapidly changing towards sustainability we expect a shift towards more conceptual engineering of more chemical oriented processes, like for example carbon neutral fuels and heat pumps.
