Commissioning & Startup Services
Commissioning and startup, the initial inspection and testing performed on an electrical power system and its components, is perhaps the most important preventive maintenance that the electrical power system will receive during its operational life.
The majority of early equipment failures can be traced to design, installation or startup deficiencies. In many cases, the failures do not occur until after the facility has gone into operation and the warranties have expired. Loose connections or insulation damage may not show up until more equipment comes online and electrical loads increase.
Power Management’s commissioning & startup services for electrical distribution systems can verify that the equipment has been:
- Installed properly and meets NEC requirements
- Damaged during shipment or installation
- Confirmed that the system meets specifications and design intent
Commissioning and startup can pay dividends and provides valuable baseline or benchmark information that can be used to evaluate future maintenance decisions.
Safety is not expensive, it's priceless
