MNP ENERGY & UTILITIES Asset Management

Safe. Efficient. Effective.

Improve Your Financial Performance

Energy and utility corporations operate in a capital-intensive environment which requires safe, efficient and effective operations to meet performance targets, regulatory requirements and optimize the return on capital employed.

MNP’s Energy and Utilities team will help you enhance your organization’s bottom-line performance by managing the full life cycle of your organization’s assets, from initiation to build, through operation and retirement. A detailed wholistic approach improves planning - effectively delivering capital projects and programs and minimizing asset lifecycle costs while meeting consumer, stakeholder and shareholder expectations. These goals are achieved through asset performance improvement, asset life extension, reduced reliability and safety risks.

  • The Advisory Counsel on Economic Growth estimates the Canadian infrastructure gap ranges from $150 billion to $1 trillion due to assets’ life cycles.
  • The Canadian government has dedicated more than $95 billion to infrastructure investment in the last two budgets.
  • Average Canadian annual investment in the electricity sector until 2030 is expected to be $15 billion, higher than any previous decade.

Full Lifecycle Asset Management

North American energy and utility corporations face aging infrastructure and technological changes, as well as regulatory and shareholder pressure to improve reliability and keep consumer rates low. To achieve success in this difficult environment, organizations must effectively manage the full asset lifecycle rather than simply build and operate.

Maximizing asset utilization through availability and reliability improvements, as well as cost optimization, is critical towards improving financial performance and profitability.

Planned asset management enables organizations to make defendable and prudent capital decisions, while optimizing maintenance costs and maximizing asset reliability.
