We cover energy-related infrastructure projects, including electric transmission, material handling, port facilities, pipelines and compressor stations.
As new transmission lines are increasingly developed and financed by independent developers, we provide independent engineering services in support of the investment and financing of transmission assets. There are numerous hurdles in developing these projects, including environmental, permitting and rights of way issues, smart grid, power storage, phasor and other advanced technologies, bringing power from remote renewable power project locations to load centers, and engineering and construction issues.
PORTS AND MATERIAL HANDLING
Bulk material handling facilities such as receiving and shipping terminals, rail and port, including various solid materials (coal, bauxite, alumina, wood pellets, etc.) and liquid fuels.
