Even a brief disruption in electrical service at a petrochemical facility or industrial plant can result in significant production declines and economic losses. A full range of potential power issues must therefore be factored into electrical system planning; addressed during the engineering, procurement and construction phases; and then continuously monitored and managed throughout long-term operation.
Given their criticality, electrical systems reap wide ranging benefits when facility owners give them focused attention. That typically involves partnering with electrical infrastructure specialists who become intimately familiar with these systems and deliver the full suite of services associated with their design, construction and maintenance.
Once limited to the engineer-procure-construct (EPC) services commonly associated with new construction, these partnerships have evolved to include cradle-to-grave power distribution and control services that optimize uptime and performance throughout the service life of the electrical systems.
