POWER Engineers, Incorporated said it is strengthening its services to the Rocky Mountain region with the acquisition of Colorado-based Salient Power Engineering LLC.
Salient Power is an approximately 25-person, private firm with offices in Wheat Ridge, a suburb of Denver. The electric power system consulting firm has specialized in substation and power system studies, as well as renewable energy and heavy industrial markets across the United States.
“Welcoming Salient to POWER is an important part of our efforts to better serve our Rocky Mountain clients,” said Holger Peller, Executive Vice President of the Power Delivery Division of POWER Engineers. “Salient provides POWER expanded substation design, protective relaying and SCADA capability in the region.”
The firm’s current clients will be able to work with the same teams and receive the additional service offerings and resources provided by POWER’s 2,800-person staff.
Founded in 2012 by principal partners Andy Leoni and Chris Mielke, Salient Power says it sets itself apart from other firms by using functional teams that emphasize collaboration, accountability and accessibility to bring innovative and cost-effective solutions to clients.
“Since our founding, we’ve committed to being responsive and providing quality-minded service to our clients,” said Salient President Andy Leoni. “Becoming part of POWER will allow us to continue our goal of offering each client a level of service unmatched in the market, while providing our team opportunities for growth.”
After work-from-home restrictions are lifted, POWER will welcome Salient employees into the Denver-area office, located at 3900 S. Wadsworth Blvd., Suite 700 in Lakewood.
