Eleccomm Power Services Restores Power for Alabama Processing Plant after Tornado Hits
On March 28, 2011 Northern Alabama fell victim to a tornado and severe thunderstorms that left a trail of devastation and destruction. Several cities and towns were dismantled and had massive power outages.
- (1888PressRelease) May 12, 2011 - One of the world's largest polymer processing facilities was left without power and were faced with serious revenue losses. When the decision was made to source emergency power, ElecComm Power Services (EPS) was contacted.
EPS' first priority was to resume normal operation as quickly and as cost effectively as possible. EPS assessed the situation and quickly dispatched 10 Megawatts of power, 50,000 feet of cable and EPS's team of engineers were on site within 8 hours. EPS assumed all logistical responsibilities, coordinated transportation of all equipment, scheduled fueling, and provided around the clock man power. Ten MW's of power were in place, tied in, fully fueled and online by 3pm the next day. The equipment powered the plant around the clock for the following 5 days until power was restored.
EPS' response helped minimize lost production and disruption. EPS has since been requested to visit and prepare a comprehensive emergency power contingency plan for the company's other 2 processing plants in Mexico and Canada.
Once again EPS proves to be an industry leader in emergency power. Please feel free to contact us 24/7 1-866-352-0170 or visit us at www.eleccommpowerservices.com
