M-Tech's major competitive advantage lies in the fields of energy systems, both on the supply-side and on the demand-side. Although M-Tech's work covers a wide spectrum of engineering disciplines including project management, systems engineering, materials selection for design and control system design, its major competitive advantage lies in the fields of energy systems, both on the supply-side and on the demand-side. In this regard M-Tech specializes in heat transfer, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, computational fluid dynamics, integrated system simulation and optimization applied to the design, construction and commissioning of energy systems.
On the supply-side M-Tech provides owner’s engineering services to Eskom for its coal and gas-fired power stations as well as to Necsa on projects related to the nuclear energy industry. M-Tech was also extensively involved with the development of the PBMR High Temperature Reactor power plant project until 2009.
On the demand-side M-Tech provides a range of energy efficiency and demand-side management products and services to a diverse client base including the large mining houses and hotel and hospital groups.
Examples of M-Tech's niche markets are:
Owner’s engineering services for Eskom's coal and gas power stations.
Simulation, design and optimization consultation services for thermal-fluid systems.
Design, construction and commissioning of specialized first-of-a-kind thermal-fluid test facilities and prototype plants.
Design, manufacturing and supply of heat pumps for water heating.
Design, manufacturing and supply of modular deep mine air cooling units.
Compressed air, steam and water reticulation system simulation and optimization services for heating, ventilating and cooling applications as well as for process plants.
Design and implementation of advanced water heating system integration technologies for Demand Side Management (DSM) and Energy Efficiency (EE).
Development and implementation of pump scheduling technologies for DSM and EE.
