Why Electrical Maintenance?

The Benefits of Electrical Maintenance

  • Improve power system reliability
  • Extend electrical equipment life
  • Enhance safety of staff and contractors
  • Reduce long term cost & unpredicted expense
  • Measure equipment condition
  • Increase maintenance staff effectiveness
  • Enable scheduled replacement of equipment

Electrical Equipment Life Extension

Given time, ‘end of life’ occurs for every piece of equipment. However, effective electrical maintenance can reveal current condition, optimize ‘useful life’ and make ‘end of life’ more predictable. This enables you to plan and budget for component upgrades and replacement, all the while enhancing the reliability and safety of your overall power system. Knowing your equipment will reach end of life in 10, 5 or 2 years not only allows you to anticipate and budget accordingly, but affords you the time to get the most competitive replacement in a non-urgent time frame.

In a study* of 127 insurance claims worth a combined total of nearly $26 million, it was found that:

Failure and damage due to poor maintenance execution accounted for 69% of total claims
55% of claims were specifically the result of inadequate or improper electrical connections
Only 6% of root causes were not predictable through the use of proper maintenance procedures
94% of claims could be prevented through predictive maintenance procedures like infrared thermography
