AT a time when project budgets are increasingly under pressure, as are delivery timelines, it makes more sense for infrastructure projects to trust one vendor that offers a turnkey solution to lead and manage every step of the process, from early ideation and planning to feasibility and engineering studies, to sourcing materials, manufacturing, and ensuring post-project success.
That’s according to Eaton, which says its Engineering Services and Systems (ESS) team has the expertise and resources to design and manage entire power and energy projects from start to finish, achieving a safer, more reliable and cost-efficient power system and the convenience of a single point of contact to reduce risks to schedule and budget.
“A single point of accountability for all technical, financial and commercial co-ordination also creates a relationship of trust, with no opportunity for budget creep or resources shrinkage,” the company said in a statement, adding that its expertise in energy generation, transmission, and storage helps clients identify cost efficiencies and enhances the implementation process.
“Furthermore, working with a single vendor… means that project owners reduce technical and commercial risks that are typical of multiparty projects where timelines could be derailed, and budgets adversely impacted by one of many suppliers not honouring their commitments.”
During the vital design process, the company offers engineering and consulting services that focus on understanding the client’s requirements, and in turn, creating innovative strategies for power systems that respond directly to business needs. These services include complete system analysis, project co-ordination, specialised applications, and training.
“When the time comes to break ground and build, Eaton provides cost-effective on-time system improvements via single point of contact, with personnel deployed in the field to complete projects, whether it’s an existing installation that’s being upgraded, or a brand-new facility that’s being built.”
Services include turnkey project management, field services such as maintenance and emergencies, aftermarket service and upgrade, power quality services, and services for components and applications.
