The National Thermovoltaics retained Allnorth to advance their new power generation technology concept to a fully functioning “Demonstration Power Plant”, integrated with the steam and cooling water systems at a cement plant in Michigan, USA.  Prior to shipping to the site, the units were assembled and tested at the National Thermovoltaics Leduc facility using temporary steam generation and cooling systems.  Allnorth was responsible for providing detailed engineering for process, structural, mechanical, piping and HVAC scopes.  The condensed project schedule was achieved by concurrent discipline engineering and close coordination within the Allnorth team to deliver quality engineering on time.
