Our extensive experience with electrical power systems design and construction can ensure your needs are met today and into the future.

Acceptance Testing

Our test personnel inspect and provide acceptance testing on each piece of equipment to verify it meets specification to energize, will operate as designed and performs as an integral part of the system. We also verify the overall installation of the system conforms to the drawings.

Energization

Once our team determines that individual pieces of equipment are operating properly, our testing engineers energize the entire system to verify it is operating as intended and meeting design requirements. Our clients receive full documentation of the system’s performance and integrity.

We can mobilize teams to all parts of the world, servicing power delivery systems from 480V to 765 kV and generation systems up to 1650 MW.

Preventive and Predictive Maintenance

We also provide consultation for development of electrical system maintenance programs that help prevent unplanned outages and maximize service life. Comprehensive maintenance records are included to help identify recurring problems.
