Power Generation and Delivery

WSP USA, formerly WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, has experience in power generation that encompasses conventional technologies such as oil, coal and gas-fired plants as well as newer, cleaner technologies such as solar, wind and hydropower systems. We have an extensive portfolio that includes combined-cycle gas turbine facilities, simple-cycle peaking power stations, cogeneration plants, hydropower projects and renewable energy facilities. We serve in diverse roles on projects of varying scale, providing advisory, design, and owner’s engineer services. Our work on the expansion and upgrade of power plants results in safer and more efficient facilities that have a smaller environmental footprint and lower operating costs.

Our power capabilities also include expertise in high-voltage overhead transmission and underground transmission systems.  Our experts have worked on all major components of a transmission and distribution network, including overhead lines, substations, underground and submarine cables, protection and control systems, and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA)/distribution management systems.

We are strongly aware of our clients’ need to improve power resilience in an era when extreme weather is becoming more common. Our professionals are ready to leverage their extensive knowledge and experience to assess system vulnerabilities and develop designs that minimize the impact of climate-related events on power facilities and networks.
