Power Plant Construction & Electrical Power Distribution
The construction of fossil or nuclear power plants requires bringing together a huge skilled workforce encompassing many different technical skills. Once the plant is built, the power it generates must be distributed to the residential, commercial and industrial users that fuel the economy.
The construction of power plants and the required power distribution network provide career opportunities for those interested in entering this field. Welders, Electricians, HVAC technicians, and Construction Managers are just a few of the skilled trades that are needed to build this infrastructure. Electrical and Electronics Engineering Technicians are going to be required to assist engineers in design, operation, and maintenance of these systems; e.g., enhanced fault locating technology will be vital to the operation of these systems.
For those individuals with the appropriate experience and training, opportunities are also available to develop businesses that provide subcontracting services to power plant builders. As America begins to rebuild its infrastructure, consider these high demand/high growth careers that will provide you the foundation to enter the field of Power Plant Construction and Electrical Power Distribution
