About PF Engineers

Providing Independent Engineering Services for Tomorrow's Energy Projects

PF Engineers was founded in 2012 by Mr. Trent Markell. After working for a number of large engineering firms, both in the US and Internationally, Mr. Markell adjusted his business model to:

Provide clients with sound engineering advice to promote the success of energy projects

The difference with PF Engineers is that we provide the personal attention and avoid the 'fluff' and the 'weasel words'. We want to provide value to our clients through the quality of our review; not the quantity.

Our extensive experience (over 85 Gigawatts of power projects and over 2 billion gallons per year of biofuels projects) enables us to review any technology. More importantly, this experience allows us to quickly assess the key technical points for a project. Whether that is the finer points of a construction contract or the application of key technical inputs of the financial model, PF Engineers can provide the necessary technical expertise to support your project financing and help you and your project succeed.
