As electric utilities continue their transition to a competitive arena, a steady flow of mergers, acquisitions, partnering arrangements and changing business focuses is taking place. This has created a challenging environment for both the utility companies themselves as well as their consultants. In response, URA is continuously examining its role during this period to remain competitive, continue to offer quality services and adapt to the changing market place.
Our services cover the full spectrum of utility activities from scoping evaluations to reload design and safety evaluations. Traditionally, we have helped licensees develop and perform their own independent in-house capabilities in fuel procurement, reload design and operations support. However, with uncertainty looming on the horizon during this era of utility consolidation, we will remain flexible and respond as quickly as possible to our client’s changing needs.
