Energy generation is the lifeblood of our country, and maintaining existing systems and developing new power sources is vital to our national interests and security. Schnabel works directly with government agencies, major utilities, and energy-related suppliers and contractors to enable the success of power generation and transmission projects.

We work on both nuclear and fossil fuel projects, providing associated geotechnical, environmental, geostructural, tunnel, and dam engineering services. Maintaining quality and safety standards at power plant projects is paramount. Our team is experienced in working under ISO 9001 or nuclear NQA-1 quality assurance plans and Schnabel- or owner-prepared health and safety plans. Engaging owners and site operators as part of our team is critical to avoid any disruption to operation of these facilities during site investigations or construction.
