Sustainability Statement

At CAMS, our founding principle is to add value through superior management and operation of our clients’ energy infrastructure assets. We do not take this responsibility lightly: we treat the assets with which we are entrusted as our own. That’s why we encourage and empower our employees to pursue creative and sustainable business practices in all aspects of our work. We’ve seen first-hand the benefits sustainable practices can have on operational excellence, financial performance, safety, community relations, and the environment.

Environmental, Health& Safety and Regulatory Excellence

CAMS is committed to fostering a safe and health-conscious work environment for all our employees, whether they operate in the field or within office settings. Our commitment is reflected through the regular publication of quarterly EHS&R newsletters, which serve as a vital communication channel to keep our community well-informed about both previous and ongoing initiatives. These newsletters provide comprehensive updates on safety-related news, regulatory developments, and upcoming changes across various plants, facilities, and departments. Through transparent and proactive communication, we aim to ensure that every member of our organization is equipped with the knowledge and awareness necessary to prioritize safety in their daily activities.

Press Release | 10.18.22

HOUSTON – Consolidated Asset Management Services (CAMS), a fully-integrated service provider for owners of energy infrastructure assets, announced that four CAMS-operated facilities in Florida remained online per dispatch and operated throughout Hurricane Ian, continuing to provide power to their communities.

No safety or environmental issues were reported at the facilities and thankfully, all employees were safe with little to no damage to their personal properties. “In the wake of Hurricane Ian, our teams at the Florida facilities worked hard to repair minor damages and restore normal operations while continuing to provide much-needed power to their communities,” said Bryan Stout, Vice President of CAMS Operations and Maintenance. “It is important for CAMS to continually evaluate our operational methods to promote safe and reliable business practices, especially during emergencies.”

Throughout Hurricane Ian, two CAMS-operated facilities remained online and operated safely with constant monitoring from CAMS personnel. All plant units operated with no issues reported. The other two CAMS-operated facilities remained 100% available throughout the hurricane and operated per dispatch safely with additional staffing and continuous monitoring.

The preparedness and timely actions of our CAMS employees at these facilities were critical during Hurricane Ian, and their outstanding performance in upholding operations did not go unnoticed.

Hurricane Ian, the fifth most powerful storm to hit the U.S. territories, started in Cuba as a hurricane on September 27, 2022. Hurricane Ian traveled across the Gulf of Mexico and developed into a category four hurricane, moving to pass Florida before dissipating back to category 2.

At CAMS, we maintain safe and reliable assets and are committed to the health and safety of our employees, customers, and communities. Since 2007, CAMS has managed energy assets that provide reliable fuel, transportation, and power to grids throughout the U.S. and Europe. Learn more about CAMS’s commitment to safety.

Two CAMS facilities, Calhoun Power and Lincoln Generating Station are recognized leaders in the safety arena. Both sites are Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star sites.

Calhoun Power Company, LLC is a 688-MW dual-fuel simple-cycle generation facility located in Eastaboga, Ala. The plant’s four GE 7FA gas turbine engines generate enough electricity to power over 500,000 homes in the region. The plant is owned by Harbert Power Fund V, LLC and had been operated by CAMS since 2016.
The Lincoln Generating Facility is a 656-MW natural gas‐fired simple‐cycle facility located southeast of Manhattan, Ill. The plant includes eight GE 7EA Gas Turbines, four of which have black start capability. The plant is owned by Eastern Generation, LLC and has been operated by CAMS since 2016.

As VPP sites, the Calhoun and Lincoln management teams, site staff, and OSHA work together to prevent fatalities, injuries, and illnesses. A tailored system is implemented that incorporates the key elements of the VPP program:

  • Management Leadership and Employee Involvement
  • Work Site Analysis
  • Hazard Prevention and Control
  • Health and Safety Training

To participate, a formal application to OSHA is required, followed by a rigorous onsite evaluation by a team of safety and health professionals. VPP participants are re-evaluated every three to five years to remain in the program.

Calhoun Power

Mike Carter, Plant Manager at Calhoun Power shares his team’s safety strategies:

Management Leadership and Employee Involvement

Buy-in. All site members are involved and understand the importance of buy-in to the safety culture and expectation of safety at all levels. If anyone has an idea to improve a process, the team discusses and decides the next step as a group. If there is a way to improve a task or process, we will do it. Tasks need solid procedures in place. During site orientation, we mention our accomplishment of being a VPP Star site and enforce the need to work safely for the contractors.

Work Site Analysis

We are constantly looking to ensure no hidden hazards are in our work area. We discuss daily jobs at each morning meeting and remind each other of the safety hazards for the task to ensure the job will get done safely. We read a portion of the CAMS safety manual at every morning meeting to keep safety fresh on our minds.

Hazard Prevention and Control

We are required to conduct one safety meeting a month, instead, we do one each Wednesday. Part of this includes a Hazard Hunt, during which each individual walks the site specifically looking for any hazards and taking action to mitigate potentially unsafe conditions.

Safety and Health Training

As with all sites, we are required to conduct specific training, either computer based (GPi), or hands on. Tracking is critical to ensure all personnel receive the training required to maintain the knowledge required for proficiency at daily tasks as well as emergencies. We have emergency procedures for any critical scenario we can think of.

Lincoln Generating Facility

The Lincoln Generating Facility program fundamentals include:

Management Leadership and Employee Involvement

Management recognizes and accepts the responsibility in leading all employees in maintaining a safe culture at Lincoln Generating Facility. Responsibility for safety and health at Lincoln Generating Facility is assigned in a variety of ways.

All employees are responsible for the maintenance, housekeeping, and safety of the site. Therefore to assist in the drive of these responsibilities, the site utilizes not only the Safety Committee to lead in these efforts, but also the Safety Promotion and Recognition Program to reward employees for their efforts. Safety is as much an individual’s responsibility as it is a management or company responsibility. All Lincoln Generating Facility employees are expected to leave work in the same physical condition as when they arrived. Therefore, these same employees are responsible to assist in maintaining and improving the sites safety and health programs and are expected to set a safe example for all employees’ contractors and visitors.

Worksite Analysis

All job descriptions are developed with safety accountabilities as a primary component. Safety procedures indicate positions that are responsible for activities and/or documentation.

Job Safety Analysis (JSAs) are developed by the job experts/employees in each area to identify position responsibilities for safe practices. General employee safety responsibilities are stated in the new employee orientation and weekly/ annual safety training at the site. Safety goals and objectives are part of every employee’s performance review.

Health & Safety Performance Goals & Training

Lincoln Generating Facility annually sets safety and performance goals for the site. This allows the site to prioritize its Safety, Health, and Training issues and enhances the recognition of safety, as a long-term commitment. All employees are held accountable in reaching performance goals and objectives. These goals and objectives are measured through the employees’ annual performance review process. The annual reviews include areas of safety, quality and productivity.  Safety, Health, and Training programs and goals are communicated on a regular basis with the employees via new employee orientations, daily meetings, postings and employee evaluations.
