IEC has a contract with the SMUD Generation Operations Department that consists of supporting all of SMUD’s generation projects on an as-needed basis. SMUD’s generation plants include gas-fired plants powered by a variety of turbines including: LM6000, Frame 7FA, Frame 7E, and V84.2. The District also owns and operates wind plant facilities, hydroelectric facilities, and solar arrays. To ensure responsive owner’s engineering services, IEC has chosen to remain flexible by subcontracting work to specialty firms that the District desires or needs. This has resulted in the District being able to quickly hire qualified engineers and other technical support staff for projects that were not originally anticipated. This cooperative approach is what clearly sets IEC apart from other prime contractors.
