Operations and Maintenance
The energy assets you leverage or build today will last for up to 30 years. Do you have the ongoing dedicated staff and resources needed to keep each energy system working well – always prepared for dispatch during emergencies and normal operations?
Long-term service builds long-term trust
We value ongoing customer satisfaction and understand that a contract is just the beginning of a long-term relationship with our customers. We measure the quality of our own-operate-and-maintain business model through customer relationships, plus continual project and portfolio analysis.
Our team is your team
Our experienced O&M team works with a network of field technicians and subcontractors to provide top-of-the-line 24/7 system monitoring, routine on-site maintenance, and emergency response to systems nationwide. With our monitoring, services and refueling are typically dispatched to your location before you notice you need them.
A resilient solution is only beneficial when all critical components work together to deliver energy on demand. Our team not only considers the operation of your mechanical assets, but also can provide for a resilient flow of energy commodities to meet your longer-duration outage needs.
An O&M schedule includes preventive maintenance, remote equipment monitoring of system configuration, switching, routine testing of the system under load, plus data storage and archiving. We work any planned downtime around your schedule and make sure your assets fit your evolving energy needs.
