Chair Pratt & Whitney FT8 Users Roundtable
Bill Clark, Vice Chair PWPS FT4 & FT8 Users Roundtable
Shawn Fowler
Plant Manager
North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation

My electrical industry career began in the early nineteen eighties from the construction side of the business expanding into power plant construction, control conversions, and start up functions as an electrician and I&C technician. Entering the nineties I transitioned into my current utility based career with Florida Power Corporation serving the System Maintenance Travel Crew(s) supporting all generation assets throughout the company. The travel crews played a significant role within both the base load plants and the CT fleet as Florida’s population rapidly expanded. As the state became more dependent on simple cycle generation to meet daily peak demands, the fleet became more dependent on the travel crews.

I have remained in the simple cycle facet of the business now for 25 plus years transferring from Florida Power/Progress to North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation. My career has presented a wide range of learning opportunities regarding equipment manufacturers which include GE Frame 5’s, 7EA’s, Westinghouse 501D, 191 251 and 301, Siemen V84, PWPS FT4, PWPS FT8, and a host of base load steam applications.

Positions held include Project Manager, Outage Manager, Maintenance Manager, Plant Manager, and Manager of CT Generation.

Current responsibilities include managing two simple cycle plants owned and operated by North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation based in Raleigh N.C. I have functioned in this role for 11 years.

Assets include 12 Pratt and Whitney FT8-3 duel fuel simple cycle units. Shawn assumed the role of P&W Chair in the Fall of 2017
