Condition Assessments

Power plant owners and operators continuously evaluate their assets and review the assets’ safety, reliability and remaining useful life. This requires long-range capital and maintenance plans that consider technical and economic variables from the front end to the back end of the asset’s life cycle.


We help clients who own, operate or invest in power plants evaluate their assets in a way that aligns with their business objectives. We work with clients to:

  • Create resource plans, identify projects, and determine spend for assets and systems based on equipment condition.
  • Develop long-range forecasting plans — for five, 10, or more years into the future.
  • Assess the remaining useful life of assets and assist with retirement plans.
  • Validate a capital plan.
  • Determine equipment condition.
  • Establish near-term unit operation and investments as well as plan for total life cycle costs of a facility.
