NAES endeavors to form relationships with industry leading companies that provide value to plant owners through preferential services, scheduling priority, and cost concessions commensurate with the volume of business that a given vendor conducts with the NAES operated fleet. The impact of this initiative is evident to almost all NAES operated plants with plant owners benefiting from significant reductions in operating expenses and improved service response.
John Brewster, NAES President and CEO, said “NAES is focused on safety, compliance, maintenance of asset value, and performance. Performance takes on dimensions of attainment of technical performance goals, adherence to operating plans and budget, cost-effectiveness, and owner satisfaction. Our preferred vendor agreements are designed to deliver the value to help us deliver the best performance that enhances an owner’s return.” He added that “the addition of Hydro to this program demonstrates their commitment to support our efforts to deliver a superior service experience.”
