Ever since 1881, we have been generating electricity for industry. The very first power plants used coal for hydroelectric power. Several other methods have been used since, including oil, natural gas, nuclear energy, solar, tidal wind and geothermal energy. Power generation is when heat energy is transformed into mechanical energy, or when mechanical energy is transformed into electrical energy. An example of heat energy transmission is the burning of oil and an example of mechanical energy transmission is wind power via a windmill. In nuclear energy transmission, heat is used to heat water, which turns a turbine and produces electricity.
Ever since the Industrial Revolution, power has been generated into energy in large quantities. At first, it was used to run power looms and to synthesize plants. Today, there's almost an endless array of opportunities to use power generation. One of the main issues today is finding a way to decrease the use of nonrenewable fossil fuels and utilize renewable energy sources, like the sun and wind. While many of the power generation methods that have been proposed are creative and efficient, they're still not able to completely replace fossil fuels throughout the world. While nuclear energy may be on the brink of a major comeback, the world as a whole is concerned about the risk.
The best option for power generation very well could be nuclear fusion, which is the same source of energy that the sun uses. In nuclear fusion, atomic nuclei are combined to release bond energy. Unfortunately, so far, nuclear fusion experiments do not yet produce more energy than they consume, making them impractical for a replacement energy source. One of the biggest reasons to veer away from fossil fuels is because they finance terrorists. Also, through combustion, greenhouse gases are released. These gases have been shown to be a major cause of global warming.
CCI provides on-going support for a major transmission plant in the Midwest on a scheduled and on-call basis. This work is performed in conjunction and coordination with the plant’s operations and maintenance team in order to insure continued, high quality operation of key components. CCI responds to in-plant emergencies to restore plant operations as quickly as possible. CCI’s participation in the management of this facility assists in providing quality products for the plant’s customers.
CCI has provided fluid removals, equipment cleaning, and residuals management services for equipment and related piping systems in advance of the removal (strip-out) of the equipment at a former automotive plant in Ohio. Also, depending on project scope, CCI provides cleaning of pits and trenches as necessary in advance of, or during, equipment removal. In execution of this work, CCI operates in close coordination with the Owner’s site, engineering, and environmental representatives. Effective strip-out preparation provided by CCI helps reduce equipment demolition timing and helps maintain project cost and schedule.
To support Owner developed demolition specifications, and regulatory requirements, CCI addressed the universal wastes, residual chemicals, and surface cleaning of a former auto plant in Michigan. The objective of this pre-demolition cleaning is to remove hazardous materials so that the demolition can occur without impacting other media. This pre-demolition cleaning also maximizes recovery and recycling efforts by reducing surface contamination and avoiding the disposal of valuable construction materials.
In support of rehabilitation of an abandoned auto plant in Michigan, CCI provided post-demolition cleaning of concrete surfaces; including slabs, pits, and trenches. This effort not only provided a safer work environment, it also facilitated backfilling and other rehabilitation activities.
