Brian Walker

2019 Recipient of the John F. D. Peterson Award

I am pleased to announce that the 2019 John F.D. Peterson Award is being presented to Brian Walker. Brian has 40 years experience in industrial facilities and power plants to call upon. Originally working in the trades, he accumulated over 20 years experience in industrial electrical, instrumentation, and controls work prior to serving as Maintenance Manager, and HSSE Coordinator, at the Foster Wheeler Martinez combined-cycle cogeneration facility in Northern California.

More on Brian Walker

He has 30 years experience with the plant’s two Frame 6 units, their associated generators, and the combined-cycle HRSGs and steam turbine.

As Maintenance Manager for the facility he has managed all aspects of turbine work and balance of plant maintenance, as well as ensuring safety and environmental compliance for the Foster Wheeler Martinez facility. In addition to running several turbine outages, Brian has supervised component repairs and acceptance testing at parts repair vendor facilities. He has been elbow deep in the turbines, knee deep in the rebuilding, and in over his head many times in getting them running again 😉

Some highlights: Other activities: Brian was a steering committee member for the Frame 6 Users Group for many years. His company, Foster Wheeler Martinez, Inc., was instrumental in resurrecting the Frame 6 Conferences in 2004, after a several year period of dormancy.

Education: Brian holds a BSBA from John F. Kennedy University.

Personal: Brian lives in Martinez, CA. with his wife of over 30 years. His daughter is currently pursuing a career as a recording artist in Nashville, TN. When not on the job, Brian enjoys not being on the job!
