HPI to revamp turbine control panels at Kinder Morgan
“This project is particularly interesting as it expands our business in the midstream transmission industry in the U.S.”, says Hal Pontez, President and CEO of HPI. “Our company’s excellent safety record, along with safety certifications by Pacific Industrial Contractor Screening (PICS) and ISNetworld, were also key influences in HPI winning this project.”
“We are looking forward to working with HPI”, says Kinder Morgan. “Based on their performance so far, we are confident HPI will deliver the expected results. We selected HPI based on the quality and completeness of their proposal and the company’s long history of turbine control experience.”
