Condition assessment plans for maintenance, insurance requirements, and capital planning

IPS provides condition assessment plans for critical infrastructure. Our field service technicians complete tests for electric motors and generators, rotating equipment, and power distribution.

These tests, and the data they generate for review by IPS engineers, guide effective maintenance and satisfy insurance requirements. They also inform repair or replace decisions, for more accurate capital planning.

All IPS condition assessment plans include complete documentation of tests and results, plus our recommendations. We can coordinate electrical and mechanical tests for completion during planned outages.

Power system studies and analyses

IPS PowerServe offers comprehensive testing and assessments for power systems. These provide you with the detailed understanding necessary to improve safety, power quality, performance, and reliability.

We deploy a team of NETA-certified technicians, backed by electrical engineers, for these assessments. Their findings help refine existing maintenance programs or create new, more effective programs.

We can also help you achieve and maintain NERC audit compliance, from testing and documentation through reporting for the audit.
