Electric Power Generation
Environmental Compliance for Power Generation
Many of the coal- and gas-fired power generating facilities built and put into service in the early 1980s are operating beyond their intended design life. They require upgrades and additional maintenance services to meet today’s desired efficiency and reliability requirements. Plant owners and operators are challenged by the growing need for upgrade projects combined with staff reductions through retirements and downsizing. To keep plants in safe, operational condition, you need a partner with experience and skill in addressing these critical mechanical plant upgrades.
Our team evaluates and implements small capital and O&M projects — more than 900 such projects with a median project value of $53,000. We address small project execution and immediate plant needs across all generation facility types: coal, simple cycle, combined cycle, gas-fired, oil-fired, coal-to-gas conversion, repowering, combined heat and power (CHP), and cogeneration.
Our specialists can help you explore your technical and operational options to upgrade and retrofit your facility, whether you are looking at air quality control systems, water systems, combustion processes, tuning or safety and security measures. We can provide design and execution services, removing burden from plant engineers and operators to better manage and execute projects and operate facilities.
We specialize in the development and management of the engineering service provider role, helping identify, scope, budget, schedule and execute your facility or fleet projects. Using our resources for engineering, scheduling, estimating and long-range forecasting gets your team the ability to accurately identify upcoming projects, define accurate yearly budgets, stabilize yearly cash flows and effectively execute on time and on budget.
Our team is your source for cost-effective, small-project execution rooted in the strong technical and construction resources we deliver on larger engineer-procure-construct (EPC) projects. We establish strong working relationships with your team to understand their goals and expectations, which means our project execution is effective, predictable and reliable.
Our comprehensive services include analysis, evaluations and assessments for all systems and processes (controls, water balance, metallurgy, piping, burners and boilers, material handling, fugitive dust, ammonia conversion, chemicals, water treatment and more); equipment reviews, technical design, specifications and procurement; and integration of industry-leading modeling technologies such as 3D laser scanning that establish your plant’s success moving forward.
