Track Record of Growth
CAMS is founded with an initial focus on power generation operations and maintenance, accounting, finance and commercial services. It has since expanded to provide fully integrated, comprehensive services for a complete set of infrastructure investors.
CAMS Acquires Bluewire Technology
Full-service IT support and consulting firm Bluewire completes a landmark project for CAMS’ first power generation facilities. Later that year, CAMS acquires the company, adding information technology to its business services portfolio.
CAMS Introduces E&P Services
As CAMS’ clients diversify into the upstream oil and gas industry, CAMS adds experienced engineering as well as operations and accounting personnel to support the growing industry. CAMS E&P provides operations and accounting services to a growing portfolio of oil and gas asset owners (private equity, financial institutions, and lien holders) located in all major U.S. basins.
Deconstruction and Remediation Services
A client engages CAMS to find a solution for two underperforming power generation assets. CAMS proposes and implements a plan to deconstruct the assets, sell reusable scrap, and perform environmental remediation to repurpose the land for sale and future redevelopment. This approach is so successful that CAMS launches a business group focused on acquiring and repurposing similar obsolete assets. That business evolves into our current model, in which CAMS deconstructs obsolete power plants and redevelops them for renewable power generation.
CAMS Adds Midstream and Trident
The creation of CAMS Midstream adds the third leg to the stool, complementing the established Power and E&P divisions. CAMS also acquires and builds an affiliate company, CAMS Trident, to provide corrosion engineering and pipeline integrity services. CAMS Midstream has grown significantly, broadening its scope of services and adding employees with decades of industry experience.
CAMS Signs First Renewable Energy Contract
CAMS’ first renewable energy asset management contract is for a utility-scale wind project in Texas. Other projects quickly follow, including utility-scale solar projects and wind project balance-of-plant O&M services in 2017. To date, CAMS has been involved in the management and operations of 42 wind and solar projects totaling 3,500 MWs.
eSPARC, an affiliate of CAMS, provides full-service environmental consulting services. eSPARC leverages years of business, legal, technical, operational, and environmental permitting experience to help energy and industrial facilities meet environmental challenges and requirements. Capabilities include due diligence, coal ash management, remediation and redevelopment support, strategic regulatory reviews for capital projects, complex air permit application development, in-house air dispersion modeling expertise, waste and wastewater management, environmental plan development, and compliance support services.
CAMS Develops Client ESG Management Program
eSPARC designs a tailored ESG Management Program for a $16.5 billion private equity firm with investments in the midstream, power and upstream sectors. The program incorporates quantitative, sector-specific ESG metrics to monitor individual investment holdings’ performance and highlighted achievements through qualitative case study reviews. A strawman program is presented during the baseline year of program development, with implementation during the second year. CAMS also provides ongoing support for Annual General Meeting materials and Annual ESG Reports.

The first client is a large private equity firm.

CAMS Supports Distressed E&P Assets
CAMS is appointed by new management to provide asset management services for offshore assets of a private oil and gas company focused on exploration and development in South Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico Shelf.
