Talen Energy Internship -- Mr. Michael Parkent

ME S-STEM scholar, Mr. Michael Parkent spent the summer of 2020 with Talen Energy at the H. A. Wagner generating station in Baltimore. Mr. Parkent was assigned to create an inspection/maintenance plan for aging infrastructure, namely the Fuel Oil Transfer System. He constructed a model of the pipelines for the whole plant in AutoCAD, identified damage mechanisms and areas of failure, proposed solutions to these areas, and designed a plan to accurately determine the remaining life of the rest of the pipeline.  Mr. Parkent feels that it was a fun summer and he is looking forward to having power generation as an interesting career path.  Job well done!  Congratulation to your graduation from our BS program this coming fall!
