HAILEY, Idaho, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- POWER Engineers, Inc. (POWER) announces today they have finalized the acquisition of Burns and Roe Enterprises, Inc. (BRE). The companies had previously announced the transaction in May, 2014.

"We are happy this process has successfully come to a close for both sides, and our clients have already started to see the value of our combined expertise," said Jack Hand, President and CEO of POWER.

The consolidation of POWER and BRE strengthens their respective U.S. and global presence in power and energy engineering markets, specifically in the areas of power generation, high-end systems analysis and consulting (from both a technical and economic perspective), plant startup and operations support.

Gerry Murray has recently been named Executive Vice President Power Generation Division and will lead the team. Together, the new power generation team will offer a world-class suite of services across the full spectrum of the power generation industry with proven expertise in fossil, nuclear and renewable technologies.

The consolidated power plant expertise coupled with the mature power delivery capability that POWER has already established presents compelling benefits and opportunities to both clients and employees.

POWER corporate operations will continue out of Hailey, Idaho and the power generation activities will be led by Murray from Oradell, NJ.  The combined BRE and POWER geographic locations include major engineering centers throughout the U.S. and also in Europe, South Africa and Southeast Asia. This will increase the overall market presence and bring a more local access to clients.
