Solutions to the Challenges Faced by Power Utilities
Aging coal-based power generating facilities, increasing environmental regulations, and competitive natural gas supply resources are driving decisions to replace, refire, or retire existing power plants. Recent disaster events are driving new scrutiny to safety issues such as flooding and seismic engineering, and we have responded by providing nuclear power consulting services. As the industry revives nuclear power generation options, we have provided critical studies in support of new nuclear reactor permitting. Barge Waggoner offers a wide array of planning, permitting, design, compliance, and remediation services for new energy facility startups and modifications to existing facilities engaged in coal-fired, hydroelectric, natural gas, solar, and nuclear power generation.
