Renewables & Natural Gas Account for 97% of Planned New Power Generation Construction in the U.S., an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2013) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Over the next five years, new build power plant construction in the U.S. will be focused on renewables and natural gas. These two fuel classifications will account for 97% of the new build construction in the U.S. during 2014-2018, according to a recent analysis of Industrial Info's North America Industrial Project Database. Owners of the next generation of power plants will have to compete in an aggressively priced electricity market and navigate an ever changing sea of regulatory requirements. In this environment, plant safety, compliance and cost effectiveness are more important than ever.

More and more plant owners are hiring service companies like NAES Corporation (Issaquah, Washington) to handle power plant operations and maintenance in order to reduce costs and achieve safety and regulatory goals.

With more than 30 years of experience in plant safety, compliance reliability and efficiency, NAES is positioned to meet these challenges. Plant owners can take advantage of this experience and capitalize on NAES' fleet scale for providing support/oversight, developing solutions to owner needs, resolving problems at the plants, and improving supply chain effectiveness.

"Our concept is straight-forward," says George Wackerhagen, Senior Vice President of Plant Operations. "We are leveraging every aspect of our business to deliver best-in-class safety, compliance, performance reliability, and cost."

NAES service offerings include power plant operations and maintenance; technical support; maintenance and construction; turbine and generator maintenance and repair; and staffing services.

NAES continues to add resources to its technical services team as that business segment continues to invest in itself as a means to drive performance across the NAES fleet and offer customized services to plant owners. Every service offering (NERC, environment, performance, and technical support) is growing as owners are seeking solutions from experienced service providers who truly understand their business needs. The plant maintenance business is equally focused on safety, compliance, productivity and cost-effectiveness.

"We're driving ourselves with attention to safety, and compliance/quality matters, capitalizing on our flexibility, and leveraging our experiences, in order to add value to our customers," said Mike Geyer, Vice President, NAES Power Contractors.

NAES Corporation will highlight its value added services at the 2013 Power-Gen International Conference & Exhibition being held November 12-14, 2013 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Talk with the NAES experts at Power-Gen in Booth 1921 and find out how NAES can help you attain your power plant operations and maintenance goals.
