We have worked for nearly 40 years as consulting engineers to the power industry. Our roots are firmly planted in the nuclear power industry, having completed more than 40 projects at 20 nuclear power sites. Most recently, GEI completed the geotechnical and hydrogeological investigations for UniStar Nuclear Energy’s proposed new nuclear reactor adjacent to Constellation Energy’s Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station near Oswego, New York. These investigations were required to develop the final design of the planned reactor and to support UniStar’s September 2008 submission of a Combined License Application (COLA) to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).
GEI performs investigations, site characterizations, risk assessments, feasibility studies and remedial designs for hundreds of former manufactured gas plant (MGP) sites, and have been selected on numerous occasions to evaluate and design new and innovative ways to deal with MGP contaminants and wastes of concern to the electric/gas utilities industry, including ambient air, soil, and soil gas screening.
GEI has extensive experience with hydroelectric power plants, dams and related fish passage facilities, including design, engineering, cost estimating, scheduling, specification and contract preparation, contract negotiations, project management and construction oversight roles. As well, GEI’s Chadwick Ecological Division offers a full service, national ecological consulting team with experience in the design, implementation, and management of aquatic life studies including environmental impact assessments, endangered species assessments, site specific water quality criteria setting, minimum stream flow evaluations and more.
Finally, the firm has completed a variety of geotechnical, environmental ane ecological projects related to fossil, wind and hydroelectric power plants and production.
