The Elephant In The Room

Posted by Lucas Schlager on May 13, 2015 2:05:48 PM

There is an old story about a group of blind men and an elephant. One touches the trunk and describes the animal as long and cylindrical, one touches the animal's side and describes it as a giant wall, and the third touches the tail and believes it is a plant. A man with the gift of sight walks by, sees them and explains to them they are all touching an elephant.

Modernizing Power Plant Construction Practices: How to Guarantee Results on Time and on Budget

Posted by Aisha on Apr 8, 2015 10:22:45 AM

In 2010, the Argentine government awarded a $350 million contract to build the world’s southernmost combustion coal power plant. Located across the road from a state operated coal mine, the project was slated to take forty-two months to complete. Fast forward to 2015 and the plant is still not in service. The majority of new coal power plant construction takes place in remote locations because demand for cheap power is high in rural underdeveloped areas. In addition, proximity to coal sources keeps costs low. With limited access to building materials, labor and electricity, delays in construction are very common. Consumers in developing countries are growing tired of consistent power shortages and outages. States are feeling increasing pressures to build faster and service their citizens. As the demand grows for reliable, safe and sustainable power, companies need to look for innovative ways to complete projects on-time and on-budget.
