Engineering & Operations

From the earliest stages of due diligence on potential acquisitions to the final day-to-day operations, Tenaska’s Engineering & Operations Group is responsible for designing, managing and operating one of the safest and most reliable generating fleets in the United States.

Encompassing natural gas-fueled generation, as well as wind and solar, the fleet is operated and managed to ensure safe, reliable and environmentally responsible operations. These plants – 7,580 megawatts of generation combined – are owned by Tenaska in partnership with other companies.

Engineering expertise includes technology screening, interconnection negotiations, regulatory compliance, engineering and construction management, and performance monitoring.

Part of what sets Tenaska’s Engineering & Operations Group apart is the breadth of our expertise. Over the past several years, the team has brought to fruition generation projects in the natural gas and renewables spaces – all with the same dedication to safety, reliability and sensitivity to the physical and cultural environment around them.
