Power Plant Engineering Expert in Cogeneration
A power plant engineering expert with knowledge of cogeneration facilities was needed for a case alleging professional malpractice. The case arose from the bankruptcy of a bank and the default on a construction loan intended to cover construction of a cogeneration power plant. The power plant was engineered to operate as a Qualifying Facility, referred to as QF, under the Public Utility Regulatory Policy Act, commonly known as PURPA, as administered by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The plaintiff alleged that professional malpractice resulted in the cogeneration plant's failure to meet FERC standards as a Qualifying Facility and its subsequent failure to repay the loan.
