Asset Management Services

Cogentrix maintains a consistent set of principles and philosophy when working with our asset management partners and facilities. First, we ensure each facility is maintaining a disciplined culture of safety, environmental care and regulatory compliance. We also work to empower plant staff in maximizing performance efficiency by providing the highest level of resources and expertise. This allows for continuous exploration of areas of opportunity that will allow for growth and improvement across plant operations.

Cogentrix can address all power plant management functions with in-house teams of specialized professionals and cross-functional experts. Utilizing highly-trained employees in fields such as finance, accounting, information technology, and human resources, along with engineering and operations, Cogentrix provides the highest level of service with precision, efficiency and care across the entire spectrum of asset management.

Our marketing desk works around-the-clock to respond to market movements whenever they may happen. Using a combination of long-term and short-term hedging techniques, Cogentrix trades to the capabilities of our assets, and does not maintain a proprietary trading book. Our only goal is to realize the highest potential of our facilities while both maximizing and de-risking cash flows. Traders work closely with teams of asset managers, engineers, operators, and market analysts to prepare and execute best practice trading strategies.

Operations and Engineering

Cogentrix has been immersed in operational and engineering expertise since 1985 and we continue to bring above-average capabilities to each project today. Our team of engineers is constantly studying and exploring new ways to improve operational processes, from enhancing fuel efficiency and analyzing emissions, to monitoring equipment in real-time and introducing new technological advancements.

Field Services, Outage and Maintenance Support

Plants that are not running are not earning. Whether it is a planned maintenance shut down or an unplanned outage in the middle of a busy period, our Field Services team can provide expert outage and maintenance support to all types of power and industrial facilities. Field Services can diagnose and resolve problems with unmatched speed and accuracy, often conducting repairs onsite and eliminating the need for expensive and time-consuming shop visits. Our technicians and engineers range from boiler experts to system controllers, providing expertise and professionalism at a cost that works for our customers.
