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 specific conditions of the project, available design input data and the task of the documentation in
given phase of the business plan.

Basic types of studies offered

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


Feasibility of the project is evaluated from the following main:

  • 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

  • Definition of the scope of delivery in relation to specific condition of the project
  • Determination of technical and qualitative requirements on equipment

Design activities

Conceptual Design elaboration, i. e. determination of the basic technical conception in all professions.

Conceptual Design is usually elaborated for a selected variant of technical solution in structuring into functional technological
systems and civil structures. The scope and required detail elaboration is always agreed in a reasonable level corresponding
to given project conditions and possibilities.

Design documentation of complex energy units at Basic Design (BD) level for projects to be realized in the Czech Republic
and abroad. The Basic Design level is fundamental for coordination of construction as a whole. It is usually elaborated from
the design input data provided by the main equipment suppliers. In more simplified form, Basic Design can be elaborated
without suppliers’ design input data.

Basic Design serves as the basis for:

  • Specification for elaboration of profession documentation – Detail Design
  • Coordination of profession Detail Design, sub-suppliers of technical units (mutual and with construction)
  • Management of possible changes of Basic Design (e.g. those caused by selection of suppliers)
  • Author supervision on the determined conception
  • Specification for selection of auxiliary (“balance of plant”) equipment suppliers

Basic Design defines:

  • Basic technical conception of the project
  • The scope of supply in relationship to specific conditions of the project
  • Technical and qualitative requirements on equipment

Design activities

Elaboration of Basic Design, i.e. definition of the basic conception and ensuring of coordination of the construction technical
solution in all professions.
BD is compiled in structuring into functional technological units or possibly into process systems (PS) and detailed process
systems (DPS), as well as civil structures/buildings. The scope and detail of Basic Design elaboration is adapted to the
conditions of given project and to the purpose of the documentation use.

Related engineering services

  • Provision of design input data for the Basic Design elaboration purpose
  • Consulting of the draft design with affected administrative authorities and key suppliers

documentation of the construction) for projects to be realized in the Czech Republic and abroad. The scope and detail of
Detail Design (DD) documentation elaboration can be adapted to the conditions of given project and to the purpose of the
documentation use.

Detail Design documentation defines:

  • Civil structure design and its components
  • Selection of components in conformity with the owner’s wish and the designer’s advice
  • Dimensioning of components and equipment
  • Detailed place of installation, interfaces, solution of possible collisions, etc.

    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 – it provides access to data models via internet and provides information and intelligent
    communication in 2D and 3D graphics
