Decommissioning Services

With the current pressure on utilities to reduce costs, improve emissions, upgrade & diversify their fleets and still increase shareholder value, there has been increased demands to idle large legacy (and even new) coal and oil fired power plants.  Doing so takes planning and smart execution to ensure success.  Enthalpy Energy can deliver both.  We offer a wide range of services in the very specialized field of facility decommissioning & demolition.

Frank was an wealth of knowledge and clients would request to work with Frank by name. He was a great mentor and his ability to make even the most stressful of days a joy was nothing short of a miracle. He treated all clients, employees, and co-workers with respect and kindness. No matter the client, the job, or the contractor Frank made sure everything was treated like a top priority, and made sure he knew the details of every single job! I highly recommend anyone looking to work with the best, go directly to Frank!
