With M&I Electric’s start-up and commissioning services, you can be assured that your equipment has been tested and commissioned properly.

More than half of early equipment failures can be traced to design, installation, or startup deficiencies. Many unnecessary outages are due to improper testing procedures, coordination and calibration of protective devices as well as wiring errors, design errors, etc.. In other cases, the failures don’t occur until months after the equipment has gone into operation and the warranties have expired.

When improper start-up and testing procedures are applied, the results can be disastrous. Your electrical system could experience a catastrophic failure due to relatively small installation and testing errors.

The inspection and testing performed on an electrical power system and its components before the initial energization is key to the system and/or components life-cycle reliability. Proper commissioning and startup testing also provides valuable baseline or benchmark information that can be used to shape the equipment’s future maintenance program.
