S&SA Division staff have the expertise to assist utilities addressing issues related to regulatory compliance, engineering programs, licensing, and configuration management as well as plant construction, restart, and outages.
The Fire Protection Engineering Division provides a full spectrum of services in support of industrial and commercial fire protection engineering programs. Our experience extends to areas such as:
> Expert guidance resolving issues related to fire protection
EPM’s vast fire protection engineering services include development of both deterministic and performance-based fire protection programs, code consulting, training, fire modeling, fire protection system design, and fire hazards analysis, for all industries.
> Commercial, Industrial, Government and Residential Fire Protection Services
EPM provides fire protection services to a variety of clients, including private firms, public agencies, electric utilities, and government entities, both domestic and international.
> Comprehensive assessments and cost-effective solutions
EPM’s approach and project methodology is simple: identify the problem, recognize a range of alternative solutions, and engineer those solutions to achieve conformance acceptable to the regulator or AHJ in a sound manner at the lowest cost.
> Chemical Process Safety Services
Expert guidance for the mandated elements of Process Safety Management
EPM provides guidance on all elements required under OSHA and EPA for chemical process safety. This includes conducting and documenting a Process Hazard Analysis. We can also help you implement programs for the other elements with our software solutions that can be tailored to your process.
The Software and Technology Solutions Division develops and provides engineered software applications and tools that support Nuclear Plant Electrical Design, Cable Aging Management, Environmental Qualification, Fire Protection and Post Fire Safe Shutdown, Fire Permitting and Pre-Fire Planning. Most software applications and tools are embedded with long term compliance configuration controls. EPM’s software applications optimize engineering and business processes to achieve nuclear regulatory compliance in a cost effective manner. EPM understands the challenges associated with engineering automation while maintaining configuration control/management throughout a plant’s life cycle – from design to decommissioning.
