The power industry is the backbone of all other industrial sectors, making it the largest worldwide in terms of the number and value of projects and facilities. Developing economies continue to need to expand their power bases, while developed economies face aging infrastructure and increased legislation regarding emissions and the use of renewable energy are driving capital spending.
Power, oil and gas, and renewable providers face ever-increasing environmental challenges in their efforts to meet growing demand for reliable and safe operations. Nearly every aspect of the energy market from cooling ponds for generating plants, routing of oil and gas pipelines, to subsea transmission lines can be subject to environmental review and need for erosion and scour protection.
The energy industry is comprised of:
