Call for Project of the Year Award Nominations

Issue 4 and Volume 106.

Power Engineering invites electric utilities, architect engineers, power project developers and equipment manufacturers to submit projects for consideration in its annual Projects of the Year Awards Program.

To be considered, a project must have entered commercial operation between July 1, 2001 and June 30, 2002 and have a minimum capital expenditure of $3 million. The required capital expenditure is fixed at a relatively low level to allow smaller projects, such as a control system upgrade or distributed generation installation to compete with larger projects, such as new power plant construction.

The following criteria are used for judging the projects:

  • demonstrated technical excellence,
  • social and environmental benefits of the project to the owners and their customers,
  • application of new technologies to improve power plant availability, reliability and efficiency.

Entry forms can be obtained by email from Douglas J. Smith IEng, Senior Editor, Power Engineering magazine ([email protected]). The deadline for submitting a project is July 1, 2002. Each entry should include a detailed 1,000-word description of the project and the reasons why it should be chosen.

The winning projects will be recognized during the keynote session at POWER-GEN International 2002 in Orlando, Florida, December 10-12 and be featured in the December Buyer’s Guide issue of Power Engineering magazine. Up to two major vendors for each project will also be recognized and receive awards.
