Project Types

Award Winning/First of a Kind

ESI has been fortunate enough to be involved in the development of “1st of a Kind” and “Award Winning” projects.  We have performed engineering on a dozen or more R&D type technologies to scale them up from concept or pilot plant to commercial reality.  Not all make it through the long road from idea to operations but that is not always a bad thing for the owner.  Discovering a fatal flaw or determining that a running facility might not meet its financial goals can often save the owner from a serious misadventure. In addition to the serial number one projects we have built – ESI has won awards for its more traditional concept facilities. We enjoy the challenge of new technologies and we greatly appreciate accolades for our work but more important to us than anything else is the success of each and every project for its owner.  Here are a handful of the showcase projects we have brought to life.

  • Fuel Types

    ESI provides a wide array of fuel types to fit each specific project. From natural gas, #2 and #6 fuel, refuse derived fuel, and tire derived fuel; to coal and petroleum coke, biomass and agricultural waste, waste water treatment sludge. Other fuel types include biogas, syngas and COG, various types of ash, as well as process plant waste streams and other various “opportunity fuels” that ESI can use to tailor to each project’s needs.

  • Power Generating Systems

    In the last five years ESI has installed more than 400 MW of power generation at various locations across North America.  We build systems to generate power using steam turbines, combustion turbines, and reciprocating engines.  These projects range in size from a few hundred kW up to 150 MW and everything in between.

  • Carbon Burn-out Systems

    ESI does not shy away from emerging technologies or unique solutions to specific problems. As an example, ESI was the EPC contractor who took the CBO technology from Pilot plant to operational facility. Carbon burn-out is targeted at Utilities who have a high carbon content in fly ash from Low NOx burner technology (or incomplete combustion).
