The global and North American leader in complex power and thermal energy plant operations.
Energy Plant O&M

The challenge as we see it

Comprised of complex infrastructure, operating an energy plant optimally is a specialized task, requiring the skills of a range of utility and technical experts. The proper operation and maintenance (O&M) of energy infrastructure at a building, campus or industrial facility is critical to maintaining reliability and maximizing economic, technical and environmental performance.

Our solutions for energy plant operations & maintenance

By leveraging a life-cycle approach, combined with a thorough preventive maintenance program, Veolia is delivering operational savings, peak efficiencies and emission reductions for several leading universities and colleges, hospitals, commercial properties and industrial clients across the country.

  • We’ve developed an optimal strategy for enhancing the economic and technical performance of complex equipment using a life-cycle approach—a systematic program of diagnostic testing, inspections, overhauls, repairs, and upgrades.
  • When equipment is maintained with a life-cycle analysis perspective, energy usage is optimized, and both operating and capital costs are ultimately minimized. Through these operational excellence programs we can improve facility economics by 15-20% on average. 
  • Our diligent approach to on-site operations and maintenance is designed to maximize peak efficiency, minimize the risk of equipment failure and ensure a tight control range.
