Houston is known as the energy capital of the world and is also ranked as No. 1 in the use of renewable energy, obtaining 92% of its power from wind and solar energy. It is home to more than 500 oil and gas exploration and production firms and hundreds of engineering firms. It’s been said that any component needed in a power plant can be designed, fabricated, and purchased in Houston, Texas.
As technology has progressed, the design of power generation facilities has slowly evolved. Major central coal fired and nuclear power generation plants and are being replaced by smaller gas fueled modular systems and renewable energy. Projects that used to require years to complete are now being measured in months. This speed can only be achieved using custom designed modular systems that are easy to ship and quick to install and commission. The need for a first-class fabrication facility with an experienced engineering staff serving the power generation industry is imperative.
Tech Fab has a 25-year track record of successful projects under our belt serving power plants. Offering solutions ranging from custom designing and fabricating fuel handling and water treating systems, to installing steam systems, Tech Fab is agile enough to quickly respond to a minor repair and large enough to tackle major projects. Each inquiry is evaluated by an experienced staff member familiar with ASME, AWS and AISC code requirements allowing immediate response to customer needs without delay.
Once the application is fully understood and defined, Tech Fab custom designs each solution incorporating the applicable codes and standards to ensure compliance in the most severe environmental conditions.
Tech Fab’s welders are tested and qualified through a 3rd party to meet AWS and ASME code standards. Our welding services include FCAW, GMAW, GTAW, SMAW, and SAW on a variety of metals. These materials include:
Our craft personnel fabricate structural, pipe and vessels exceeding code standards in the shop or in the field for all your power generation fabrication service needs.
Tech Fab’s facility consisting of 20,000 sq ft Steel Process, 50,000 sq ft Fabrication and Assembly, and 46,000 sq ft Coatings facility meets and exceeds all standards to handle most any chemical processing projects.
In many cases, pre-fabricated/modularized equipment (pipe spools, structural) is the preferred method so that it can be quickly installed at even the most remote locations all while maintaining a better budget and schedule.
Meeting our strict safety and quality control program, Tech Fab also can provide the field installation, commissioning, and startup of these systems before handing it over to the customer. Situated near the Houston Ship Channel, we are conveniently located to provide the Power Generation Industries with a one stop fabrication shop regardless of the size or complexity of the project.
