CPS Energy, the largest municipally owned Energy Company in the nation owns a fleet of power generation plants in Bexar County with a combined output of over 4,700 MW. In 2012, CPS initiated an Asset Corrosion-Protection Study for their fossil fueled power generating facilities to proactively protect the assets from coating degradation and premature corrosion. This paper details the asset protection study from conception to completion.
- Describe a streamlined approach to project letting (pre-bid meeting, qualification of vendors, proposal format, contracting, etc.)
