We understand the importance of innovation. We believe in continuous improvement, from the development of our people and processes all the way to the production of globally responsible projects. Our involvement in the renewable energy market continues to grow, and we are poised to serve these evolving markets. Renewable energy clients have been a significant part of our history since our entry into the domestic and international power markets. As renewable energy continues to gain momentum, we are well-positioned to serve wind, geothermal, solar, hydro and alternative fuels projects.
Solar is a renewable energy alternative that we fully support. Our experience includes large-scale solar installations, nitrate salt technology, water/steam receivers and thermal storage systems. Our vast experience with fossil-fueled generation in both the coal-fired and gas-fired markets is an ideal match for future Concentrated Solar Power project requirements — whatever the technology, we deliver.
We have performed extensive international and domestic work, including nearly every major geothermal project in the United States since the early 1980s. In fact, our dominance in the power market can be attributed to our early involvement in the geothermal industry, beginning with projects in the California and Nevada.
Wind power is the fastest growing renewable energy source in the United States. As a general contractor, we are fully capable of performing all construction phases of a major wind farm, from foundation construction and turbine and tower erection, to complete balance-of-plant installation and electrical collection systems.
We have developed an extensive résumé of hydroelectric generating facilities throughout the United States and Canada and have completed some of the largest facilities in North America. Our capabilities extend the powerhouse structure and turbine areas, as well as major penstock installations, water distribution systems and major civil work associated with infrastructure development.>
