Electrical Substation Inspections

DATA TO DECISIONS: Your one stop for all tech-enabled inspection and imaging needs. Control risks and plan for the future with actionable data.

Through our tech-enabled platform, routine inspections, audits, layout verification, drawings, and building plans are efficiently conducted without the need to enter a small substation. To ensure inspections occur with the highest level of of safety, we evaluate on a case-to-case basis which substations may require training, education, and escorts. We constantly inspect switches, arrestors, bushings, transformers, and structures inside substations through visual and thermal methods without an incident ever occurring. As certified Level 1 Thermographers, we can observe any thermal abnormalities instantaneously, helping us determine whether or not a specific component needs to be further investigated or is out of specifications.

Continued service area growth increases power demands on Navopache Electric Cooperative (NEC) Electrical Substations and Transmission Lines. We identified obstacles impeding NEC’s goal of operating a reliable substation and enhanced their operational efficiency.

Spontaneous, manual inspections by various groups affect productivity and lead to higher costs for our utility partners. By providing an in-depth tech-enabled inspection and analysis of a substation, we are able to identify areas that reduce system reliability and efficiency, which could threaten the safety of employees and contractors.

Our inspection can be completed without the need to de-energize the system, while still providing cutting-edge results including full visual and thermal imaging inspections. There is no need for service interruptions when we conduct our remote inspections that are necessary to keep the lights on and the customers happy.
