At Servelec Controls we help our power industry clients achieve their goals of delivering energy safely, reducing operating costs and maintaining availability.

Our critical, real-time control and safety systems are used across all sectors of power generation including hydrocarbons, coal, combined heat and power (CHP), nuclear and renewables, including an energy trading system as part of the British Trading Transmission Arrangements infrastructure (formerly New Electricity Trading Arrangements). 

In an environment where assets are ageing, experienced engineering staff are leaving the industry and resources are shrinking you need a system integration partner that you can rely on. Energy producers must continually review existing equipment capabilities and invest in the migration of obsolete technologies if they are to remain competitive. Servelec Controls can help. Our obsolescence solutions ensure seamless upgrades to the latest market-leading technology and integration with existing infrastructure, whilst minimising implementation time and cost, and reducing downtime.

Servelec Controls offers full project capabilities, from conceptual design through to decommissioning. We offer integrated process control, motor control, safety systems and information solutions in a single open, scalable architecture. We provide complete plant-wide control for conventional or renewable power generation.

  • Hydro refurbishment programmes
  • Renewable energy plants (Wave/Tidal/River)
  • Boiler and burner safety/management systems
