Operating and maintaining a large combined cycle power plant is no easy job, but those at the RISE power plant in Johnston, RI are up to the task. Matt is one of those team members that dutifully ensures equipment is operating properly and executes repairs as needed. After working in the nuclear power field for 13 years, Matt came to RISE in 2016 and was quickly welcomed into the Cogentrix family.
“From identifying problems in the plant to resolving them, I’ve never had such a sense of professional reward or fulfillment as I do at Cogentrix.”
“I work with an extremely talented and diverse team at the RISE Power Plant. From identifying problems in the plant to resolving them, I’ve never had such a sense of professional reward or fulfillment as I do here. It’s not just the men and women at RISE that attribute that – it’s from Cogentrix, the parent company, as well. Cogentrix and the management at RISE let me do my job and give me the tools to improve the station. You can’t ask for much more than that.”
A typical week for Matt includes monitoring plant equipment for deficiencies, ordering parts, performing repairs, overseeing contractors performing specialized repairs, and returning equipment to service after all work has been completed. Efforts by Matt and the rest of the team at RISE ensure plant reliability.
