Our History

Track Record of Growth
2007

CAMS Established

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.

2010

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.

2011

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.

2012

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.

2013

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 Established

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.

2015

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.

2017

CAMS Awarded O&M Services for 5.2 GW Portfolio

CAMS is awarded O&M services for a large portfolio formerly owned by American Electric Power. The portfolio includes four power plants in the Midwest, including one of the largest coal plants in the U.S. – the General James M. Gavin Power Plant. The Gavin Power Plant is capable of powering two million homes.

2019

CAMS Supports Publicly Traded E&P Trust

CAMS is awarded a contract to provide asset management for a publicly traded trust, holding interests in over 7,000 oil and gas positions in Texas, New Mexico, and Louisiana. CAMS provides all accounting and operations to include direct liaison with Trustee and supports the issuance of public filings.

CAMS Introduces eTRAC

CAMS enters into its first contract for eTRAC, an in-house developed software-as-a-service platform. The platform combines real-time market and project performance data to provide immediate, project-specific financial and operational performance information. eTRAC is particularly valuable to project owners that seek to optimize assets by participating in day-ahead bid/offer strategies. The first client is a large private equity firm.

CAMS Awarded O&M and Asset Management for Large Midstream Portfolios

CAMS Midstream begins operating and providing asset management services for several Third Coast Midstream (formerly American Midstream) energy assets. The portfolio includes approximately 260 miles of natural gas gathering pipelines with 40,450 horsepower of compression in the Eagle Ford. At the beginning of 2020, seven regulated natural gas transmission systems are added to the portfolio. In the latter half of 2020, another six gas transmission systems are added. Total capacity exceeds 1.6 Bcf per day and covers approximately 2,300 miles across Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri.

2020

Winner of 68 Best Practice Awards

Since 2013, CAMS has been consistently recognized for its operational commitment to best-in-class safety practices and performance by earning 68 Combined Cycle Journal (CCJ) Best Practice Awards. These awards highlight the most outstanding generating facilities in the power industry.

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. CAMS supports the Chief Restructuring Officer, bond holders and the board of directors as the company navigates the restructuring process and assesses a strategic exit.

2021

CAMS Acquires Solar O&M Company

CAMS continues to expand its renewable energy footprint by acquiring the U.S. solar operations and maintenance company Belectric. Its portfolio includes 191 operating sites in 11 states.

CAMS Establishes Battery Partnership

CAMS establishes a partnership with FlexGen, a leading battery integrator and storage solutions provider., to deliver the first comprehensive services offering to the battery energy storage market in the U.S. The partnership embeds O&M considerations in the design of the facility to ensure the most cost-effective project for owners of both greenfield and brownfield redevelopment projects.

CAMS Adds Battery Storage

A utility-scale independent power producer (IPP) backed by leading energy investors, awards CAMS the O&M service contract for 10 utility-scale battery storage projects in Texas, subject to the final execution of the contract. It represents one of the largest third-party service contracts at the time of signing.

CAMS Creates Renewable Services

CAMS establishes a new company, CAMS Renewables Services (“CRS”). CRS serves as a point of aggregation and focus for the growing suite of CAMS’ renewable energy-related services to continue to best meet our clients’ evolving needs.
