EPR has intimate knowledge of fossil power plants due to decades of previous experience by the principals as engineers/contractors/owners. It is not a casual decision to provide our customers with top-tier technical consulting support and personnel. Rather, it’s from first-hand knowledge of the importance of effective project delivery.
Combined Cycle (Frame/Aero)
EPR is experienced at executing all forms of simple-cycle and combined-cycle projects, including green-field or repowered sites. Recent experience includes restructuring duties at one of the world's largest combined-cycle power/desal facilities and various greenfield F-Class (50hz/60Hz) combined cycle plants.
Recent international experience includes heavy fuel oil and coal thermal power with multiple 660MW blocks and the balance of plant facilities like GIS interconnects, fuel/ash handling, FGDs, ESPs, and seawater intake structures. An EPR principal managed the first international bank financed Chinese EPC project ($2.5B) built to international standards.
Biomass and Concentrated Solar are a natural extension of EPR's steam cycle knowledge, construction management expertise, and commissioning experience. EPR is currently engaged in the US biomass sector.
Pipelines & Compression
Many of EPR's projects have included pipeline and compression facilities. This experience and extensive code & standards exposure makes the hydrocarbon transportation industry a beneficiary of EPR’s quality and construction management competencies.
Mining & Metals (Captive Power)
Captive power is usually combined cycle or thermal but requires a special understanding of the technical complexity and capital cost tradeoffs necessitated by N+1 or N+2 redundancy and some of the unique requirements for avoiding single failures. EPR has extensive experience assisting developers with captive power technical and contracting strategies.
