    • 'The 21st century is going to be the Asian century'

      Asia has a thirst for power and we know coal will meet most of it, but can this be done sustainably? This was one of the topics tackled at POWER-GEN Asia in Kuala Lumpur.

    • Cool runnings

      As the need for coal-fired power continues, the need for effective cooling measures has become more vital than ever. We examine the latest technology developments.

    • Keeping pace with new demands

      Many hydro plants are operating in ways not envisioned during their original design, which puts stresses on their equipment, but there are solutions to these new problems.

    • The flange protection challenge

      The corrosion protection challenge presented by flanges has led to the development of a number of innovative solutions which must meet various vital requirements.

  • Regulars

    • Industry Highlights

      • Industry Highlights

        The word 'sustainability' is inextricably linked with carbon emissions, but does it - or should it - mean more than that?
