About Lipten

Providing energy solutions since 1969.

Who we are:

Lipten is an engineering firm specializing in steam power plants.  Founded in 1969, Lipten managed projects ranging from equipment updates to entire power plant design and construction. Our level of support can vary from an advisory role to complete turnkey facility construction. Lipten is one of the few turnkey general contractors that have an in-house controls team, giving you complete control of equipment interface. Whatever your project is, Lipten has the ability to take it from concept to completion.

Mission Statement:

Lipten simplifies power generation.

Expertise: We enjoy taking on new challenges that expand our capabilities. Each opportunity increases our knowledge of power plant design and is the reason we are industry experts today. This expertise is critical in providing creative solutions that deliver the best performance for each specific application.

Adaptable: Lipten can manage any or all parts of the engineering, procurement and installation process. This allows the client to determine their level of engagement, from turn-key to project partners.

Intuitive: Once equipment is installed, our clients use the system daily for decades to come. We understand what it takes to keep a plant running and pride ourselves in creating systems that are intuitive. An intuitive system will simplify the day to day activities for plant personnel, helping minimize maintenance and downtime. 

Customer Focus: Customer satisfaction is the backbone of our organization. We are advocates for the stakeholders of project financials, equipment performance, environmental impact and day to day operations. Lipten will provide clients with simple, effective solutions for their power needs.  

How we can help you:

Lipten is organized into Business Development Groups with responsibility for marketing, project development, finance, engineering, and a construction group with managers responsible for the thermodynamic analysis, cost estimating, engineering, layouts, permitting, construction management and plant start-up.
