Fossil-fired power stations worldwide are exposed to increasing pressure to operate with maximum efficiency and minimum emissions.

A power station built in 2020 is significantly more efficient, both economically and environmentally, than a power plant built in 2000, 1980, or 1960. In spite of these technical leaps, power plant chimneys today are essentially the same as forty years ago, except for the fact that they use different materials of construction for their internal flues.

One of the innovative concepts developed by Hadek for new power plant chimney construction or modernization is the Wet-Ready Guide VaneTM.
