Power & Heavy Industrial

Handling Projects from Concept through Commissioning and Maintenance

Western specializes in working within operating facilities and under the tight constraints of scheduled outages.

Western provides engineering, fabrication, construction, and maintenance support to clients in power generation, mining, and heavy industrial markets. We have extensive experience with turnkey capital improvement projects, process piping, emergency and scheduled maintenance, and outage support projects.

Outage Support

Western specializes in supporting our customers emergency and scheduled outages.  We understand that time is critical when your facility is offline.  Western has successfully completed hundreds of outage support projects requiring specialized labor crafts and a 24/7 work schedule.

Maintenance Services

Western has maintenance contracts in place with clients to complete preventative, scheduled, and emergency maintenance on coal handling equipment, pulverizers, boilers, and other industrial equipment.  We can develop a site-specific maintenance program or implement an OEM maintenance program to help keep your facility running at peak performance.

Capital Improvement Projects

Western has successfully completed various capital improvement projects for our power generation, mining, and heavy industrial customers nationwide.  Western offers turnkey capabilities including engineering (mechanical, structural, civil, electrical, and control systems) and a fabrication facility to support our multi-trade construction operations.
