  • Classical energetics
  • Heating industry
  • Waste burning
  • Industrial energy


Our Services

Development of studies for preparation of energy production plants both in the Czech Republic and abroad as whole, but
also for planned reconstructions, refurbishments and extensions of existing installations. The scope and details of such
studies are adapted to the specific conditions of the project, available design input data and the task of the documentation in
the given phase of the business plan.

Basic types of studies offered

  • Conceptual Study: the initial draft of a technical concept according to the client’s requirements
  • Preliminary Feasibility Study: draws up input data from actual input information on the project for the first assessment
    of the business/investment plan in the agreed scope
  • Feasibility Study (FS): elaborated in a more detail scope according to the project´s specific conditions; serves for the selection
    of design variants and an assessment of the plan


The feasibility of the project is evaluated from the following main points:

  • Technical feasibility
  • Rate of investment return
  • Time schedule of preparation and realization of the project
  • Project implementation plan (preparatory stage, realization and operation)
  • FS includes requirements on performance of needed surveys (Engineering-geological, hydrogeological etc.) of the locality

Related engineering services

  • Provision of input data for execution of given study
  • Consultation of the proposed solution with affected administration authorities and main equipment suppliers

ÚJV Řež can prepare studies and documentation for the preparation and implementation of energy generating plant greening projects. The studies may be prepared for energy generating sources as a whole as well as for partial operation sets.

The greening of energy generating units that burn solid fuels is intended to reduce the negative environmental impact of the units. This primarily includes the reduction of emissions into the air to make the levels of emissions compliant with Directive 2010/75/EU and with Act No. 201/2012 Coll., on Protection of the Air and Regulation No. 415/2012 Coll., on permissible level of pollution and its identification.

Another goal is to improve the efficiency of the entire generating unit, including the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

Possible solutions for the greening of sources:

  • Change from solid fuel to liquid or gaseous fuel;
  • Combustion modification, fuel conditioning;
  • Reduction of solid emissions;
  • Reduction of sulphur dioxide emissions;
    • Primary methods;
    • Secondary measures (wet, dry, and semi-dry methods);
  • Reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions;
    • Primary measures (combustion modification);
    • Secondary measures (selective catalytic and non-catalytic reduction);
  • Combined technologies to reduce emissions of SO2 and NOx.

 Preparation of documentation:

  • Feasibility study;
  • Basic Design documentation;
  • Technical parts of Bidding Documents for supplier selection;
  • Coordination documentation in the Detail Design phase;
  • Author supervision;

 Related engineering activities:

  • Identification and analysis of the actual state of equipment;
  • Evaluation of technical parts of tenders;

Consultancy service for investors and suppliers

The consultancy service for investors in the area of conventional and nuclear energetics is offered by ENERGOPROJEKT
PRAHA Division in a very flexible scope, determined according to the specifics of the project and requirements of the client.

As a consultant, the division offers complex consultancy services from the phase of business concept and selection
of optimal variant, including preparation input documentation for evaluation of the project feasibility and technical
documentation for negotiations with banking institutions about funding for the project.

In the realization phase, the consultancy services also respect the requirements of a client. The consultancy service in
the realization phase is represented by the “Owner´s Engineer” scope of activities (see below).

Owner’s Engineer services for investors

This is the complex of services during pre-investment (preparation) studies and feasibility studies, design phase, project
administration and project management of designers led by the client, including other specific activities – function of the so-called Construction administrator, Supervision, etc.

Technical Support of Nuclear Regulatory Authorities

The division provides consultancy service for the Nuclear Regulatory Authority in the assessment of documentation
for the application for construction licenses for new Nuclear Power Plants. Part of technical support includes the
preparation of the information system to support the Safety Report and related documentation.

Expert activities for International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)

  • The division’s top experts also operate in the long term in the area of IAEA activities and their educational programs.
    The division prepares and realizes trainings and internships for specialist from the developing countries, for example
    in IAEA fellowship training.
  • The division also delegates its specialists on Consultancy Meeting on the Technical Document (TECDOC), National
    Workshops (Training) and similar workshops.

Elaboration of design and as-built documentation in the environment of mutually linked database systems, i.e. a detail model
of the system including a depiction of links and configuration of database objects in 2D or 3D graphics.

In the ENERGOPROJEKT PRAHA Division, we use the following database systems:

  • AXSYS. Engine for design of multi-discipline intelligent diagrams
  • PDMS for creation of spatial models and the follow-up generation of documentation
  • Microsoft Access for establishing of applications for support of design and data sharing
  • Database SQL (ORACLE or PostgreSQL) database for support of the design process and development of information systems

Database allows

  • Following links needed e.g. for maintenance and repairs planning, use of margins, etc.
  • Creating interfaces for other applications (computations, simulations, etc.) and in this way to provide required input data
    sets or to depict the computation outlets in the documentation or in the special model

The following SW systems were developed in ENERGOPROJEKT PRAHA Division

  • GAMED – for execution of technical documentation in the database environment which enables data transfer via web
    interfaces and provides multidiscipline coordination
  • GADUS – for data presentation – this provides access to data models via internet and provides information and intelligent
    communication in 2D and 3D graphics
  • COMA – for collision management – web application is used to identify and evaluate collision between contractors. The application supports spatial coordination of the project
  • RDB – review database – web application is used to make comments of delivered documents
  • LBAT – a web application for the support of NPP licensing documentation evaluation
