Contract Operations and Maintenance Services
We’ve operated a wide range of plant types including biomass, combined cycle combustion turbine, cogeneration, and aeroderivative-based peaker. We have operated those plants in, and are very familiar with, a variety of business contexts: merchant, power purchase agreement, and tolling.
We are currently mobilizing and will operate a combustion turbine cogeneration plant in Canada. The plant includes two LM6000 combustion turbine generators and two once-through steam generators. The cogeneration facility will sell energy into the Ontario merchant market and will provide steam to the Ford Motor Company. In addition to mobilizing and operating the new facility, we will continue to manage the adjacent Ford power plant, which we have been managing since 2007.
We understand that the mission of every power plant business is twofold. First, provide exceptional returns to the investors by seeking every reasonable opportunity for increased revenues and reduced expenses, while optimizing the balance between them. Second, preserve the value of the plant through cost-effective maintenance and the improvement of its human and physical assets.
We also recognize that each step in the evolution of a power plant – from the development phase through maturity – presents a unique set of management issues, priorities, dangers, and need for critical management systems.
Mission clarity, an understanding of the evolutionary phases of each plant, and our experience in each phase enables us to position each plant for success.
