Global Coal Handling Equipment Market in the Mining Industry 2014-2018

Coal handling systems form an integral part of a complete material flow and quality management system. In recent years, focus has shifted from optimizing single parts of the system to advanced automation solutions. Obstacles created by issues such as greenhouse gas emissions force many industrialized countries to consider exit strategies for long-term coal-fired power generation. However, coal still remains one of the most important sources of energy. With growing urbanization in many developing countries, the need for power is rapidly increasing, creating a high demand for coal. An increased need for efficiency in supplying coal in sufficient quantity and quality has led to a need for complete system optimization. Coal handling equipment is used to extract coal from its reserves or coal m......

Global Distribution Transformer Market 2014-2018

A distribution transformer is used in the electric distribution system to step down the high voltage to a lower level so that the end-users such as Industrial, Commercial, as well as Household sectors can consume the distribution conveniently. Since 2007, the department of electricity regulates the energy efficiency level of low-voltage dry-type distribution transformers. The regulations were imposed by the same on liquid-immersed and medium-voltage dry-type distribution transformers as well from 2010. Sometimes a distribution transformer is designed and constructed in a way that it is mounted on a utility pole during installation. It is then known as pole-mount transformer. The other ones, which are installed on a concrete base, at the ground level are known as pad-mount transformer. T......

Global Nuclear Reactor Construction Market 2014-2018

A nuclear reactor is used in a nuclear power plant for generating electricity. The energy released from the continuous fission of fuel atoms in a nuclear reactor is harnessed as heat in either gas or water, and is used to produce steam. The steam is used to drive the turbines which produce electricity. Power generated by nuclear reactors accounted for about 11 percent of the total electricity production globally in 2013. As there is no combustion of any material, there is no emission of any gases such as carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide, which are harmful to the environment. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Nuclear Reactor Construction Market to grow at a CAGR of 2.72 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Global Nuclear Steam Generator (SG) Market 2014-2018

A nuclear steam generator is used to transfer heat from the primary loop to the secondary loop. This generator is linked between the primary loop and secondary loop to generate electricity from nuclear power plants. A piping system that contains coolant is called a primary loop, which is normally at very high pressure and temperature. A secondary loop consists of a separate piping system, where water is converted to steam to rotate turbines. Water flows through the primary loop never mix with water flows from the secondary loop. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Nuclear Steam Generator market to grow at a CAGR of 10.7 percent over the period 2013-2018. Covered in this Report This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Nuclear Steam Generat......

Global Wind Energy O&M Market 2014-2018

O&M is crucial in any wind energy system and is still quite capital intensive. This is because the use of wind energy does not require fuel expenses; therefore, the expenditure for the equipment represents the main component cost. An adequate O&M is necessary to protect the equipment to keep them running during their expected lifetime. Good O&M practices can optimize the profitability of wind farms, thereby ultimately reducing the downtime of the turbines or leading to the extension of their lifespan. O&M also tends to be high for offshore wind energy systems compared to the terrestrial wind energy systems. This is because of the difficulty and the logistics of maintaining wind turbines in harsh marine environments. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Wind Energy O&......
