Case Study: Nevada Power Company
Persistency Pays Off – Furmanite Selected as a Preferred Vendor for Nevada Power
After a lengthy and very comprehensive RFP process in Q3, Furmanite’s persistency and hard work paid off – the Company was selected by the Nevada Power Company as a provider for several specialty industrial services. Specifically, Furmanite may offer its services in the following areas: leak sealing, pipeline intervention, on-site machining, valve repair, concrete repair, and end-to-end performance monitoring and testing services. In addition, Furmanite will offer Nevada Power high-valued outsourcing services for preventative maintenance, as well as specialized engineering services through its Engineered Solutions Group.
“It’s an honor that Furmanite has been selected to provide our services and solutions to a company with such high quality and safety standards,” said Todd Sale, Director of Operations for Furmanite. “In order for us to meet Nevada Power’s vendor requirements we had to prove our technical superiority, unique capabilities, and the depth of our experience, as well as provide numerous references from clients in all our fields of expertise.”
