NAES Primed to Help Power Generators Reduce O&M Costs in Shifting Market, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/13 -- Power Generators have cost reduction on their minds as they attend the 2013 Electric Power Conference & Exhibition, which runs today through May 16 at the Rosemont Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois. Faced with regulatory challenges and tightening margins, power generators are looking for ways to cut costs, including fuel switching and optimizing operation and maintenance (O&M) performance. Enter NAES Corporation (Issaquah, Washington). Founded by four northwest utility companies in 1980, NAES has grown to be the industry's largest independent operations and maintenance services provider, with a portfolio of more than 202 power generation plants worldwide, totaling about 59,915 megawatts (MW).

NAES Maintenance and Construction Group is continuing to grow its air quality control systems services, with NAES Power Contractors being awarded the installation of a dry sorbent injection (DSI) system and an activated carbon injection (ACI) system at a coal-fired generating station owned by a cooperative located in the Midwest.

NAES experts will be chairing multiple sessions and making presentations at the Electric Power Conference. Mark Minniti, Sales Director for NAES Power Contractors, will be chairing and co-chairing three sessions: "Maximizing Craft Productivity," "Maintenance Contracting Strategy," and "Labor's Role in Contracted Plant Maintenance," moderated by NAES Power Contractors Sr. VP and Chief Commercial Officer Jake Hardy.
