Shedding light on electrical refurbs


Boulting has released an infographic detailing ten top tips for engineers who are carrying out electrical refurbishments. The infographic highlights the most important aspects of the refurbishment process and educates plant managers about the importance of each stage.

Every piece of electrical equipment within a plant will require regular maintenance and refurbishment. As a result, there is no one size fits all process for refurbishment as all plants and the equipment inside them are different. The areas for consideration, however remain the same.

Boulting understands that, regardless of a project’s scale, a tried and tested refurbishment protocol is essential to ensure successful completion of a project and that the site remains safe at all times.

Its new infographic allows engineers to share in its wealth of knowledge and experience, by providing ten key areas to consider before beginning an electrical refurbishment. Topics in the infographic include, surveys, impact of downtime and the importance of having a contingency plan.

“Electrical refurbishments are an integral part of our business and we are proud of our reputation of executing these complicated jobs to an extremely high standard” explained Paul Meagh, electrical and instrumentation director at Boulting.

“The maintenance of electrical equipment is often easily overlooked, but it is essential for the equipment to be running as efficiently as possible, both to ensure running costs are minimised, but also to extend the life of existing assets.

“Asset life extension is a popular concept for plant engineers, who wish to have long intervals between replacing equipment. As their current equipment has already been purchased, commissioned and is often working without fault, our aim is to keep the equipment in use for as long as realistically possible. Regular maintenance and effective refurbishment is a crucial aspect of this.” continued Meagh.
