Electric Power Generation
Environmental Compliance for Power Generation
Hydroelectric power is among the oldest reliable power sources, and our experience includes managing large programs for some of North America’s largest utilities. We have a long history working on retrofit programs for aging hydro and pumped storage facilities.
To identify, develop and execute a modernization plan for a hydropower facility, your engineering and construction partner must understand the intricacies and nuances of hydro generation. We have experience maintaining reliable, efficient operation while completing upgrades and minimizing downtime to coordinate within existing outage periods. Among our technical areas:
We can support the detailed design of your next hydroelectric project, moving it from preliminary design through construction, creating comprehensive and quality design products. We’re familiar with a variety of storage options and have developed designs for small and large hydro projects.
Our engineer-procure-construct (EPC) delivery is ideal for fast-track projects, reducing owner risk and staffing, shortening project schedules, providing a single point of contact, and establishing an environment for design and construction innovation. We leverage long-term relationships with trusted vendors and contractors to keep the project moving.
Program management is an option that supports full integration of our team with yours. We’ll help you coordinate project planning, design and construction services at all stages so you can remain focused on your core business. We work with you to select consultants and subcontractors, administer contracts, track schedules and budgets, assist with labor relations, implement safety programs, coordinate with federal, provincial and local agencies, and manage public relations.
