RE POWER® Solutions for Power Plant Owners
TRC established its RE POWER® Program to provide our clients with clear, well-defined scopes of work that are tailored to accomplishing stakeholder goals in the transition, decommissioning and redevelopment of retiring generation assets. Our focus is on the long-term, best-value option for repurposing the site. This is exemplified by our early-phase planning activities, which include strategic planning, market assessment and Return on Investment (ROI) analysis.
Utilizing a collaborative approach between TRC and the owner, the RE POWER® Program starts with definition of our client’s goals, identification of each necessary task and evaluation of multiple performance options, calculated to deliver optimum value. Value is realized through innovative work planning, effective engagement with regulators and local stakeholders and continual monitoring of means and methods with a focus on safety and cost savings.
Having served as advisor, consultant, Owner’s Engineer and Prime Contractor, TRC has a true 360-degree perspective on how to successfully plan, design, contract and execute the scopes of work. By applying this experience, TRC developed two proprietary platforms – the Asset Management and Optimization Program and the Itemized Decommissioning Task List.
The Asset Management and Optimization Program is a platform of processes and procedures specifically constructed to identify, evaluate and explore options to increase the return value of project fixed assets. This platform is operated based on cost to value governance projected on the execution strategy for decommissioning of the power plant.
The Itemized Decommissioning Task List platform is employed as a tool to analyze the activities required to implement a site-specific decommissioning strategy. The platform analyzes each task from operational status through decommissioning status, with a focus on the planned reuse. The output of this platform can be used as the scope of work for unit decommissioning.
