As part of our commitment to providing value-added results here are a number of proven case studies from our satisfied customers.

Peaker Output Relocation Study


A Midwestern utility selected Valdes Engineering Company to prepare an engineering study to evaluate the proposed relocation of the electrical output from eight turbine-generators. Valdes developed applicable alternatives and their associated budget cost estimates, which would allow the utility to assess the technical, operational, logistical and financial implications of the project.

The study included the following elements:

  • Field study and assessment of existing power output routing

  • Field study and assessment of available client resources outside of the target facility

  • Structural analysis of existing transmission infrastructure

  • Capacity assessment of existing switching infrastructure

  • Conceptual engineering design of multiple alternatives for re-routing the peaker generator output

  • Financial analysis and comparison of conceptual designs

  • Photographic renderings of conceptual designs

  • Study Report detailing the alternative conceptual designs, analyses performed, and recommendations
