Mission Critical Infrastructure

POWER Engineers is a premier designer of critical power solutions to the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community. POWER’s select team of cleared experts specializes in the design of highly reliable power and control infrastructure systems used to secure critical installations. POWER’s critical power team has supported more than $150 million in critical infrastructure projects for the Intelligence Community in the U.S. and overseas over the last five years as both a prime and subconsultant.

Our team of cleared engineers understands the complexity of integrating existing electrical systems with new and recapitalized equipment. We have extensive experience with mission-critical infrastructure outage constraints, and we provide detailed system cutover sequences to mitigate risk to the overall mission.

Our engineering, testing, commissioning, and cutover plans have set the benchmark for the transition of upgraded electrical, mechanical, and SCADA systems. Our critical power team provides exceptional engineering solutions for our nation’s most critical customers for seamless and uninterrupted mission operations.

Critical Power

POWER’s team understands the mission-critical needs of the Intelligence Community.  We provide close technical coordination with the government and their on-site O&M providers during all design and commissioning phases. Whether supporting recapitalization of aging equipment, facility expansions, or electrical upgrades, we design power systems to meet the government’s highest standards for redundancy, reliability, and maintainability.

Our integrated design teams comprised of architectural, civil, structural, electrical, controls, and mechanical disciplines configure and integrate all infrastructure components to meet the Uptime Institute’s Tier III or Tier  IV requirements. We also have select staff with Uptime Institute Accredited Tier Designer (ATD) certifications. Our team has proven and demonstrated expertise providing complex, technical solutions for critical infrastructure that enables seamless and uninterrupted mission operations.
