Dave Melroy, president of MSA Engineering, a local electrical engineering firm that has designed power systems for the Venetian and the Hard Rock Hotel, among others, notes he's never seen it this busy.
In fact, he
firm is even working on another yet-to-be-announced blockbuster project.
Such a proliferation of construction makes firms like Russelelectric and Enercon smile, as Sin City's windfall usually translates into orders for switchgear, transfer switches and the like.But Vegas - with its advanced appreciation for robust power systems - is also good for the numerous cogen vendors seen at the show.
According to Melroy
, cogen is very commonplace in casino operations, especially given the many uses of steam in hotel linen and restaurant operations.And Melroy
is seeing the trend migrate beyond Clark County, in the casino and resort work his
firm does for Native American gaming operations.
