Keeping the lights on 24/7 starts with reliable power generation and the right people to make it happen. Whether it's leading large environmental upgrades or preparing for peak-generating season, our power plant and generation professionals do what it takes to help keep our processes running smoothly while maintaining critical equipment.
Mechanical maintenance professionals are tasked with maintaining equipment in our plants such as the water and steam piping systems, mechanical drive systems, gearboxes, turbines, boilers, valves and motors.
Instrument and control technicians maintain instrumentation and control equipment. The equipment includes a wide variety of computerized sensing, monitoring and control systems throughout the plant.
Electric maintenance professionals maintain electrical equipment such as switchgears, breakers, motors and both high and low voltage distribution cables and wiring systems.
Plant operators control and monitor the operation of all plant systems necessary to generate electricity.
Some positions may require employees to be on-call or work outside of normal working hours.
If conditions are safe, employees may be required to work in inclement weather.
When the power is out, we are on the job until it is restored. It is important that you are ready to relieve your teammates when it's their time to rest. They will be there for you.
These jobs can be tough; physical fitness is a necessity.
Adherence to working safely is a must. We will never sacrifice your safety to get the lights back on or generate power.
