  • Designed and installed an under water culvert lining system to repair the cooling water intake for a multi unit, 1000+ Mw power plant which resulted in repairs made with minimal interruption to service and saved millions of dollars in downtime and replacement power cost.
  • .
  • Designed and installed material handling systems for use in a weld shop, making use of equipment already in inventory, which increased productivity, improved employee morale, increased safety, and reduced expensive outsourcing for a major power plant.
  • .
  • Totally reorganized the engineering documents storage, retrieval, and records management system at a major power plant. Developed, programmed, and implemented a PC-based document records system which provides quick and easy access to the plants design records and reduced access time from hours or days to five to fifteen minutes. 
  • .
  • Developed, programmed, and implemented a PC-based security screening system which reduced contractor employee inprocessing time from 4 to 6 hours to typically 2 hours or less. This system is saving 800 - 1000 man-hours per major outage.
  • .
  • Identified additional plant systems, and costs associated with qualified systems, which increased pollution control refinancing at a nuclear power plant from an initial $3 million issue, to a total of almost $250 million. The increased refinancing, with lower cost - tax free municipal bonds - saved about $200 million over the life of the plant.
  • .
  • Designed and implemented a budgeting and cash forecasting system for a 1.3 billion dollar nuclear power plant construction project.
  • .
  • Designed and supervised the building of a lifting rig for the handling of precast stadium seating panels at the SeaWorld project. Using this rig, safety was increased, and erection time reduced by about two weeks.
  • .
  • .Organized and directed all aspects of a project in Korea to construct 6 barracks foundations, using both US Troops and local labor, which was completed 6 weeks ahead of schedule and permitted occupancy before the winter set-in.
