Empyrean Services attends NIC’s Advanced Reactor Summit

Last week, Empyrean Services attended The Nuclear Industry Council’s Advanced Reactor Summit VIII.  This virtual event was attended by over 300, and continued its focus on showcasing technology developers and advancing solutions on the cost and deployment timeframe of advanced reactors, as well as practical ideas and concepts that have the potential of significantly improving advanced reactor design, deployment, and operations.

The Empyrean Group Supports Local Communities

The Empyrean Group proudly supported, in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Section of the Society of Petroleum Engineers, the Greater Washington County Food Bank.  Rather than holding its annual holiday gathering, the Pittsburgh section created a platform for regional SPE members to help support the local community.  Empyrean was proud to participate in this honorable demonstration of how the energy industry cares about its neighbors.

PIOGA-Marcellus to Manufacturing

11/12/20-  The Empyrean Group was honored to attend the 2020 Marcellus to Manufacturing event at Oglebay Resort, in Wheeling, WV, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Independent Oil and Gas Association (PIOGA).

This year’s talks focused on COVID protocols, Maintaining a Safe Workplace, and discussions about how natural gas, and its byproducts are crucial to a stable economy, including Hydrogen production.

Outage Support – Reduce Cost & Time

The power industry is changing. Plants are closing or converting to natural gas. The workforce is aging, creating a gap in resources. We don’t know what the future holds.

The good news is Empyrean can support you where you are now. We have teams of technical resources ready to work, with utility outage experience. Free Agent Nation has emerged, creating a workforce that prefers project work with variety and flexibility.

The benefits to utility organizations include a well-staffed, experienced workforce able to support outages and other project work for a fraction of the cost compared to supporting dozens of direct hire employees. Reach out to Empyrean. We take the headaches away and get the job done.

We look forward to serving you!

Challenges can be overwhelming…

You are tasked with impossible challenges. Sometimes regulatory agencies are breathing down your neck. You are worried about the safety of your employees and the community. Your company has to make more money to keep your job.

There’s no question our jobs can be stressful. What do you do when you’re feeling overwhelmed? I call in help. I look for experts that have worked on this challenge before. Sometimes I outsource a challenge that is not part of my team’s core competency.

Empyrean stands ready to assist you with technical challenges, management challenges and many challenges in between. Reach out and call us. We can most likely help you. And you’ll be happy you did.

The Hidden Profit of Supplier Diversity

I’ve always been a supporter of equality on all fronts. Working for a woman and minority-owned business, though, has allowed me to dig a bit more into the implicit biases and reasons for companies to have supplier diversity programs. As it turns out, a diversified supply chain leads to greater profit too!\

Click here to read a fantastic article, which highlights all of the great reasons to have a robust supplier diversity program.
Empyrean has been a thriving business since the early 2000’s. We have two operating companies – Empyrean Services (nuclear focused technical consulting and staffing, small business, minority-owned) and The Empyrean Group (technical consulting and staffing, small business, minority and woman-owned).

What differentiates us? Two things: (1) Our bench of experts (executives, engineers, project managers, etc.) number in the thousands, which has turned into an evolving network of former clients, long-standing employees and really… friends, and (2) Our recruiting team is second-to-none. I am amazed how quickly they can fill vital engineering roles or nuclear oversight professionals for our clients!

We are happy to call you part of our network of friends. Please reach out if you would like to learn more or chat about an upcoming project. Thank you!

Design Engineering Work Management Tool

It’s been tried before, but hasn’t quite hit the mark. You’ve probably built your own workarounds to make the process more efficient. The suppliers charge too much money and want ongoing maintenance fees.

The industry has struggled with how to best plan for both short-term and long-term with existing tools and systems. Pulling data from other databases (sometimes legacy – aka “very old” – databases) is time-consuming and introduces potential errors.

Empyrean is now offering a service to implement the “Design Engineering Work Management Tool,” which offers two key elements – People and Process. The process includes automating the integration of multiple systems (P6, SAP, Maximo, etc.). The people element, though, is what makes the service a success. We ensure buy-in throughout the organization and build the process around the team’s interests and strengths.

We customize the service to include just what each client needs (budget, time and outcomes). The first step is to schedule a webinar to gather information. We will then (1) ensure this tool will get you what you need, and (2) design a proposal to meet those needs.

Reach out today to learn more and schedule the initial free consultation!
