In the face of challenges, we help generate solutions

Every power generation plant manager is facing the challenge of producing more generating units, often with aging facilities and insufficient staff to maintain vintage electrical equipment. On top of that, there's growing demand for more renewable energy sources and growing regulations to comply with.

In fact, by 2035 there will be a need for an additional 250 gigawatts of power in the U.S. alone, but environmental regulations have frozen CapEx at many fossil-fuel generating plants. Today's power plants urgently need to address these challenges while also integrating smart technology and raising their safety profile.
