Project execution

Smooth project execution with minimum downtime

Our experienced team of competent engineers takes a consultative approach to find out the right solution for the modernization of an aging Static Var Compensator. A typical SVC modernization project starts with a site survey, where our team evaluates the current status of the SVC installation. At this stage we ascertain the long and short term operational goals of our customer.

The site survey allows us to benchmark the condition of the installed SVC against the desired or optimal SVC operational performance. The site survey leads to recommendations for the further maintenance and modernization of the SVC. Regardless of whether the proposal is standardized or customized, we make an effort to keep downtime to a minimum. This allows the optimization of investment cost and reduces lifecycle costs.
