    The Founder and Principal Engineer has over 40 years of electrical engineering experience in the field of commercial and industrial plant design, construction and plant start-up.  Responsibilities include conceptual engineering detail design, short circuit studies, load flow studies, coordination studies for fuse, circuit breakers and relay setting, substation design, control schematic design, PLC design and programming in addition to project management and coordination, man power forecast, project scheduling, cost estimate and specification writing.

    An Electrical Engineer, with a lifetime of experience in the electrical generation field, the Founder and Principal Engineer has worked on rotating machinery for over forty years. Mr. Fournier’s extensive experience includes the specification of new turbo-machinery systems, retrofit design, installation, commissioning, troubleshooting, operational optimization, and failure analysis of all types of turbo-machinery used in power generation, oil & gas, petrochemical & process plants and aviation. The land-based turbines (gas, steam or combined cycle) in question were typically made by General Electric, Alstom power, Siemens Westinghouse, Rolls Allison, Solar and the companies they formerly were, before some of them merged.

     The following list indicates a few of the electrical engineering skill sets acquired by the Founder and Principal Engineer in his professional Career.

    • Design of PCM equipment (First generation)
    • Design of FM multiplexing equipment for T-1 lines (First generation-Microwave repeater systems)
    • Design of highly redundant systems for telemetry on oil-pipelines
    • Design of a National Telephone System for the Country of Tunisia
    • Design of large vertical electric motors- H.P. up to 5000hp.
    • Design of high-voltage transmission facilities up to 144,000 Volts, 3-phase Y and Delta Systems (underground and overhead)
    • Design of underground and overhear power feeds to minor subdivisions and shopping centers
    • Load Analysis for residential, commercial and Industrial buildings
    • Design of Natural gas turbine generation : up to 171MWe
