Press Release | 06.20.24

Kearny, N.J. – Consolidated Asset Management Services (CAMS), a fully integrated service provider for owners of energy infrastructure assets, announced today that Parkway Generation, a group of power facilities that CAMS provides operations and maintenance (O&M) for, celebrated five years without an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)-recordable injury. CAMS marked the achievement with a joint special event between Parkway management and union representatives in New Jersey.

“I’ve had the pleasure, over the years, of seeing this group implement grass roots improvements that have led to top-decile safety performance and ultimately this significant safety milestone,” said Ryan Paley, CAMS’ VP of Operations. “Their focus on safety behaviors has fostered a culture of comfort in peer-to-peer challenges to hold everyone accountable for safety and to make sure everyone is able to go home the same way they came to work. I am very proud to be part of this team.”

The Parkway Line of Business (LOB) Safety Council was conceived as a grass-roots effort to identify best practices in safety. The group consists of chairpersons for the union-led site safety councils and the associated plant management teams. It leverages their combined knowledge to make effective safety culture changes across the Parkway fleet. The LOB council has been instrumental in maintaining the strong safety culture that led to this great milestone.

“Ensuring the health and safety of our employees and communities is of the utmost importance for CAMS,” said Ben Vodila, CAMS’ VP of Corporate Health & Safety. “This important milestone demonstrates that safety, as a value, is deeply ingrained in the people and the processes that make up the Parkway Generation facilities.”

Parkway Generation consists of seven modern and highly efficient natural gas-fired power generation facilities that are part of a portfolio of assets managed by Alpha Generation, LLC. The Parkway fleet provides critical capacity, energy and ancillary services resources to New Jersey and Maryland near large, densely populated load centers. The portfolio represents a highly competitive fleet and one of the nation’s largest natural gas-fired power portfolios.
