Electric Power Generation
Environmental Compliance for Power Generation
Hydroelectricity is one of our oldest reliable power sources. Water access and water rights can be contentious issues, and any additions or improvements at hydroelectric facilities are bound to face scrutiny. You need a partner who can help you at every step along the way, from the initial, pre-project analysis all the way through construction and startup.
We trace our roots back to water and power projects in the late 1800s. Our integrated team combines experience in economic analysis, permitting, regulatory coordination, controls upgrades, and structural and mechanical design. And we have the electrical transmission and distribution experience to make sure your power gets to the grid as efficiently as possible.
We have worked on low head and run-of-the-river hydropower plants across the United States and around the world, developing customized solutions that address each project’s complexity, budget, risk and schedule.
Hydropower facilities also face regulatory challenges when they impact fish and their habitat. Our team includes ecologists who can help you mitigate impacts from new plants or from plant improvements, as well as perform compliance tasks under FERC regulations.
