Very few if any businesses today can survive customer demands and competition without the proper performance and protection of their electrical equipment and systems.
Homewood has expanded its service support to address these increasing demands and risks associated with efficient and safe operations. We have added commissioning, electrical maintenance, site operations, repair and testing to our stable of "single source solutions" ... providing expert engineering service to either augment your in-house capability or function as an outsourced extension of your operating needs.
Regardless of how these services are contracted, they can become the appropriate ongoing resource to help optimize operating performance.
The number of countries in which we have worked is exceeded only by the variety of equipment we have installed, commissioned, serviced or repaired. Our highly skilled engineers and technicians can quickly diagnose and solve critical operational problems.
Our expertise encompasses the following electrical/mechanical equipment applications:
Electrical Engineering & Field Service Verify Systems, Integrity and Safety
Homewood's competent engineers and technicians provide independent installation and acceptance and maintenance testing on all aspects of power distribution systems. Many clients use us on a scheduled basis to conduct Doble tests, turns ratios, oil samples, megger and high potential tests to verify systems performance, integrity and safety. We can operate as an unbiased testing authority, professionally independent of the manufacturers, suppliers, and installers of the equipment.
For new or expanded facility installation and start-up, acceptance testing of electrical power systems is a critical tool. Shipping and installation damage, field and factory wiring errors, manufacturing defects, systems and components not in accordance with drawings and specifications are among the many problems that can be detected by proper testing. By detecting defects before start- up, they can be corrected under warranty… eliminating safety risks, possible equipment failure and potential consequential damages associated with loss of production. Test results obtained during acceptance testing are invaluable as base reference data for periodic testing ... an essential element of an effective maintenance program.
Maintenance testing of electrical power systems provides our clients a means of prolonging the service life of equipment as well as averting unexpected failures and loss of production. Minor repairs can often be performed in the field.
Major equipment tested in Electrical Power Distribution Systems include:
Regardless of the amount or type of electrical power equipment and systems in operation, accurate testing is required to maintain efficiency. Capacity, response time and general reliability are continuously challenged by the deteriorating effects of time. Homewood's electrical power systems performance and protection testing and maintenance includes:
To complement our equipment installation, maintenance, operation, servicing and repair services, we offer:
