Electric Power Generation
Many power plants — coal- and gas-fired and nuclear — are operating beyond their intended design life. Evaluations and upgrades are critical steps to maximize your return on investment in these plants, keeping them compliant, competitive, efficient and reliable.
The power industry is also seeing a drain on talented, experienced engineers as the long-time managers of these plants retire. Owners face project backlogs, inaccurate cost estimates and unreliable forecasts. Our project managers and engineers can define project scope, budget and schedule for single projects or plant upgrade programs designed to increase reliability, improve performance, increase safety, reduce operating costs and provide key operational data for meeting industry standards.
We have extensive experience helping evaluate and implement plant improvement projects and have completed more than 800 coal, gas and hydroelectric plant improvements in the past two years. Our nuclear power team has evaluated plant operations and completed design projects to improve operations, including pump replacements, intake structure evaluations, ventilation system improvements, storage tank replacements, rotor and fan replacements.
Acting as an extension of your team, we bring decades of experience in consulting, planning and permitting, technical studies and evaluations, system upgrades and design and long-range forecasting.
