Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Alstom Thermal services EHS (Environment, Health and Safety) launched the Environmental Baseline Project to keep in line with the sustainability efforts of Alstom Power and specifically to improve environmental management at various workshop sites of Thermal Services. This document details the methodology and results of phase 2 of the project. Phase 2 was divided into three main modules The first, ‘Communication Module’, which was set up to increase the understanding and awareness of concepts underlying the environmental baseline project, involved the development of guidance kits for each, water, energy and waste management. The second, ‘Project Management Module’ consisted of monitoring and applying the results of Phase 1 to more sites; Wroclaw (Poland) and Charleroi (Belgium) sites in particular. This involved the drafting of lighting & water consumption and waste generation review documents in order to facilitate the generation of the report document. The third, ‘Technical Module’ comprised of the development of a heating assessment tool. The tool is designed to calculate the heat losses and to assess if the installed heating system is sufficient to attain thermal comfort within the site. The tool further aims to generate a preliminary action plan suggestions from the results of the assessment. Each module of phase 2 intends to sustain, improve and develop (respectively) results of phase 1 and sets a path with the same intention for the next phase of the project.
