The way our world produces and delivers energy is changing. And SME helps energy companies keep pace. Our experts tackle the highly technical and complex energy work, delivering insightful engineering and consulting services to energy companies around the world.

SME partners with electric utility and transmission companies, biofuel facilities, wind power producers, ethanol manufacturers, geothermal energy users, natural gas producers, petroleum producers and refiners, pipeline companies, and solar cell production facilities to address unique environmental and engineering challenges. These organizations regularly turn to SME for our extensive environmental expertise. We provide consulting services for contaminated site investigation, remediation and closure; manufactured gas plant management; release responses; regulatory compliance; and permitting.

Energy companies also trust SME for geotechnical solutions. We excel at solving difficult geotechnical and structural challenges during design and construction of various types of power facilities, including new plants, substations, transmission towers and wind turbines, and pipelines. And we are experts at retrofitting equipment at existing plants. Our engineers recommend cost-saving foundation systems, design specialized foundations, and address issues related to vibrations, dynamic loads on foundations, and the impacts of soil corrosivity on various infrastructure.

From a building materials standpoint, we assist energy companies with the design, restoration and inspection of a wide range of building systems and components, including steel construction and welding, above-ground storage tanks, pavements, roofs and building façade.

Energy-related projects have taken us around the world, to Saudi Arabia, South Korea, China, Ireland, Spain, Italy, South Africa, Mexico, Nicaragua and Turkey. Whether preparing recommendations for repair of wind turbine foundations, identifying hazardous or regulated materials at a power plant, or conducting environmental investigations at former manufactured gas plant sites, our engineers and consultants take pride in delivering the innovative, cost-effective solutions that help power our world.
