Operations and maintenance

All remote systems must be regularly inspected and maintained, to avoid failure at critical times and detect safety hazards that may creep up over time.

These tasks are often tedious, time-consuming and hazardous, but we have the training and equipment to get them done quickly and efficiently.

We can provide O & M services by:

  • Business owners
  • Renewable energy installers who wish to outsource these tasks
  • Oil and gas field sites
  • Remote communications sites
  • Remote weather / climate / water monitoring sites
  • Meteorological (MET) towers (we have trained tower climbers on staff)

Our typical full system maintenance visit includes:

  • Download and inspect data from all system loggers
  • Visual inspection of all wiring and equipment for physical damage (abrasion, wildlife, etc)

  • Ground fault test (megger)
