APM is proud to receive excellent feedback from our customer, especially in the face of challenges. Our Gas Services Team in the North has demonstrated our culture to rise above setbacks and deliver results through steadfast professionalism and commitment. During our recent outage at CPV Fairview Entergy Center, the APM team, under the leadership of Superintendents, Maury “Chip” George and Justin Bentley, completed two 7HA.02 warranty repairs, unibody changeouts, and S1B bucket changeouts.
The team endured an injury within the crew early on, but we quickly learned from the event and doubled down on our focus to deliver with the highest levels of safety, quality, and productivity. At the site, we setup FME perimeters to safeguard the work area, keeping material and other trades out. Since this facility is still undergoing construction, there were many contractors and trades to cooperate with throughout our time at the site. Despite the challenges, our team still delivered the outage 11 days early!
Our customer contact with Vogel Construction Services expressed the following praise for our team:
“…Your crews, foreman, and superintendent have done a superior job and shown a real respect for their work. I come from maintenance, and watching this crew perform has really impressed me. I congratulate the leadership shown to put the start behind and maintain the professionalism in their work and actions. My take away is how professional APM is – the quality of work and the leadership to rise above. It is a pleasure to see all the work unfold.”
Thanks to all who contributed to the success of this job. It had some challenges, but we still walked away delighting our customer and fulfilling APM’s expectations for execution excellence after moving past the unfortunate injury. We appreciate the team’s optimistic demeanor – learning from our failure to be better and stronger moving forward.
