Fossil fuels will remain a dominant source of energy for decades. To remain viable in a low-carbon future, coal-fired plants are challenged to deploy strategies for ever-increasing efficiency, capacity and reliability. We can guide you through complex projects as your program manager or as an owner's engineer to ensure your strategic goals are met with a validated project scope, minimized risk and realistic schedule, price and performance standards.
The answer to the question of whether we can use coal in an environmentally safe and economical manner to generate electricity is absolutely yes. We have experience in designing and retrofitting plants with industry-proven technologies to remove contaminants and meet stringent new standards to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We use advanced economic tools to help you quantify and manage project risk. Our transportation and water experts can advise on reliable fuel transportation, water supply and treatment options, and cooling water intake and discharge compliance.
