As Power Plants strive to ensure adequate power generation and continuity of service, they are confronted with a myriad of challenges. Among these include growing energy consumption, rising fuel prices, and increased competition in a changing market.

Adding to the complexity of these market dynamics, Power Plants must manage several other key challenges:

  • Plant expansion, life extension, increasing output, and new construction (nuclear, wind, water, solar)
  • Merger and/or acquisitions due to increased demand
  • Regulatory compliance requirements (i.e. Sarbanes Oxley)
  • Effects of natural event shifting population changes, accidents, weather, emergencies
  • Competitive market landscape with new players
  • Major shift toward alternative fuels
  • Diminished critical competencies due to loss of skilled labor, while industry deregulation creates competition over a limited labor pool

Alpha offers the following services to support Power Plant Projects:

  • Program and Project Management Platform Evaluation, Selection, and Implementation
  • Capital Project and Outage Project Management and Controls Staff Support
  • Business Process Definition and Analysis
  • Engineering and Construction Management
