MORRISTOWN, N.J., Sept. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Louis Berger, which has worked in the power and energy market for decades, has established a limited liability corporation, Louis Berger Power, LLC, led by Frank Jordano. The limited liability corporation is focused on providing turnkey power generation and distribution solutions where quick, immediate or remote power is required.
"Within the turnkey power market, we not only plan and design power facilities, we construct and operate them as well," said Jordano, the new president for Louis Berger's Power, LLC. "By establishing an LLC, we are able to provide flexibility for the financing and investment capital required in this specialized segment of the power market while continuing to leverage the global reach and local expertise of the broader Louis Berger corporation."
Focused on emerging and frontier markets, small islands and remote sites to deliver a complete power solution from design to installation to ongoing operations, Louis Berger is targeting growth in non-OECD countries, specifically in Africa, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
"Frank has an exceptional track record in executing high-risk operations for Louis Berger," said Nick Masucci, Louis Berger chief executive officer and president. "Under his leadership, Louis Berger has constructed, operated or maintained 20 power plants across four continents—all with quality execution, safe operation, and strong financial performance."
Since joining Louis Berger 10 years ago, Jordano has served as senior vice president for the global operations energy systems business unit and managed Louis Berger's $1 billion-plus infrastructure rehabilitation program for the U.S. government. In total, he has more than 30 years of experience managing large engineering and defense programs. Jordano holds a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the United States Military Academy and a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
