5 Examples of Industrial Electrical Services Projects

A general definition for industrial electrical services is any design, installation, troubleshooting, or repair of electrical systems for industrial clients, such as manufacturers, warehouses, factories, machine shops, construction projects, and much more. Here are details about a few of the services we provide.

1 – Designing New Electrical Systems

Designing a new industrial electrical system must be carefully coordinated with the rest of the construction team and the building owners. The industrial electrical contractor needs to have a good idea about what type of workspace, machinery, lighting, etc., will be in the design. The customer will have requirements, but they are looking to the electrical contractor to be the final word on the electrical system design.

2 – Remodel/Rewire Existing Industrial Electrical Systems

Sometimes, an industrial building’s existing electrical system is no longer suitable for the business’s day-to-day activities. So the old electrical system will need to be torn out, a new electrical system installed. This requires careful evaluation of the existing load on the current system. Where have there been problems with the existing system? What are the company’s current power requirements? And more. In many ways, a remodel can be more challenging than a completely new electrical systems installation.

3 – Automation and Control Systems

Today’s industrial environments rely more than ever on smart technology. As a result, electrical contractors cannot just install the machinery and expect it to run. Today’s industrial electric contractors must understand the interfaces for these systems and how to design, program, and customize the controls systems for the electrical function of the equipment and the communications and integration with the machinery controls, control panels, and much more.

4 – Conveyor System Electrical Work

Conveyor systems come in many different configurations. They can be highly complex, automated solutions or simple conveyor systems. These systems always come with electrical controls integrated with the production line. These systems often require a bit of tweaking to get the conveyors working smoothly, so it doesn’t hurt to have an industrial electric company available for troubleshooting.

5 – Industrial Generator Installation

Industrial generator installation, just like most other industrial electrical services, is a complex undertaking. Many factors need to be considered, such as:

  • Are you installing it inside or outside?
  • How old is the building where the installation will take place?
  • Does the area experience extreme weather such as torrential downpours, hurricanes, or snowstorms?
  • Are there any local laws or regulations that may impact where and how you can install the generator?
  • How much power does your building use at peak usage?
  • How long do you need the backup generator to run?

These are just a few of the factors that need to be considered when installing an industrial generator.
