Our proven assessment framework and power generation experience helps you unlock a path to sustained asset optimization. We guide you to an understanding of the total cost of operating and maintaining your assets, providing credibility and data to support lean operation and maintenance, integrated resource plans (IRP), depreciation rate case filings, or mergers and acquisitions.
