Power organisations across the world are facing significant change – they must maintain a resilient and reliable supply of electricity that meets growing demand, while simultaneously balancing changing consumer expectations and the need to reduce the environmental impact of operations.
Conventional energy generation including coal, oil and gas will remain part of the energy mix in the near term, albeit with fast-tracked use of carbon capture, storage and utilisation technology. Nuclear, alongside future fusion technology, will continue to maintain a role in future energy supply. Future power pathways are no doubt renewables driven, however, with wind, solar and other forms seeing investment and growth.
Whether new build or adoption of new technology configurations into existing assets, power and renewables programmes consist of interconnected projects including plant construction, technology integration, storage and grid infrastructure for transition and distribution.
Meeting the challenges
Our project and programme management expertise, coupled with our cost and commercial management, project controls, advisory and procurement services help clients meet these challenges. Our global reach and local knowledge enable us to deliver the most complex power generation, transmission, interconnection and distribution projects and programmes successfully.
Our work in power generation includes conventional generation, alternative technologies and renewable energy sources. Our transmission expertise includes high voltage overhead transmission, underground transmission systems including subsea, high voltage and medium voltage substations, high-voltage direct current (HVDC) as well as systems for medium-voltage distribution and protection and control.
Through our data and intelligence, we’re able to deliver expertise at all stages of the asset lifecycle, taking an active role in enhancing programme delivery and asset management capability in owner operator teams.
Find out how we are supporting global clients to deliver complex power generation projects in coal, gas, oil, nuclear and renewable energy and helping to enable transmission and distribution of reliable energy to rapidly growing populations.
