Pioneer Power Group was contracted to perform an arc flash study. At Pioneer Power Group, the safety of our customers and their clients is our absolute, number ONE priority.
The crux of this project was that two main switchboards were recorded to be in extreme danger. Anytime this situation occurs, personnel cannot interact with the equipment safely without the risk of severe injury or death. There are several factors that could cause incident energy to be high at a given location. This is particularly true at a main distribution switchboard. Our customer reached out to discuss this scenario and ways to reduce high incident energy level at these two switchboards.
Our team immediately addressed the problem and provided several possible solutions for the customer to choose from. We explored three options:
No “PPE Space Suits” will be required now! Our customer chose to add maintenance mode options to the main breakers in the switchboards. The customer was very pleased with the result, as well as the time we took to patiently go over all the options to provide a solution. Our team does everything we can to provide a safe and workable results for your project location!
