Biomass Power Plant Managers

Work Environment

Biomass power plant managers work 40 or more hours per week. They spend part of their work day in the production areas of the power plant, observing workers and production processes, testing machinery, and making repairs. They wear protective gear such as helmets, goggles, gloves, and uniforms when they are on the production floor. Another part of their day is spent in their offices, on their computers and phones, and in meetings with other managers and power plant employees. When emergencies arise, such as equipment malfunctioning, power plant managers will work beyond normal work hours to make sure the problems are solved and the power plant is operating according to safety regulations and production standards. The job can be stressful and requires managers who are logical, have good judgement, and are strong leaders.
