February 19, 2020 – Sargent & Lundy recently joined the New Jersey Alliance for Action, whose mission it is to improve New Jersey's economy through the promotion of capital construction and infrastructure investment.
The firm joined the New Jersey Alliance for Action to help support efforts of its local utility clients and contribute to meeting the state’s ambitious green energy goals: 50% clean energy by 2030 and 100% clean energy by 2050. Sargent & Lundy is also well-positioned to work with various offshore wind providers and renewable energy companies looking to support the Governor of New Jersey’s mandate to reach 7,500 megawatts of offshore wind by 2035. If this goal is reached, it will generate electricity to power more than 3.2 million homes and meet 50% of the state’s electric power need.
The firm opened an office in Hamilton, New Jersey, in 2017 to be in closer proximity to several power delivery and generation clients it serves throughout the Northeast. Since its opening, the Hamilton office has grown more than tenfold. The office is currently executing dozens of transmission and distribution projects ranging in voltage from 4kV through 500kV. It also provides the local resources and spend to all investor-owned utilities in New Jersey, which is a key metric to support New Jersey’s economy.
“We look forward to continue growing our Hamilton office and supporting sustainable economic expansion through our membership with the New Jersey Alliance for Action,” said Thomas Foley, senior vice president and senior project director for Sargent & Lundy’s electric grid infrastructure business. “We’re also excited for the opportunity to help our clients provide solutions to meet New Jersey’s commitment to responsibly developed offshore wind energy.”
Sargent & Lundy joins over 2,500 of New Jersey's top corporate, labor, professional, academic, and governmental representatives as a member of the New Jersey Alliance for Action.
“We’re pleased to have Sargent & Lundy join our alliance of organizations dedicated to advancing New Jersey’s economy,” said Jerry Keenan executive vice president of the New Jersey Alliance for Action. “Having a top five design firm in the global power market with a local office supporting top New Jersey utilities is a win for the Alliance and the state.”
