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.
From equipment modernisation/upgrade to complete design, construction and commissioning of a new energy project, Eaton’s 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, while Eaton’s knowledge and expertise in all matters related to energy generation, transmission, and storage, identifies cost efficiencies and enhances the implementation process.
Furthermore, working with a single vendor like Eaton 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, Eaton 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.
With services including electrical equipment life extension and modernisation to upgrades and support designed to maximise uptime, reliability and safety, Eaton’s ESS team is dedicated to understanding its clients’ business needs so that it can optimise their power systems for safety, reliability, and efficiency, all sustained by ongoing after-sales support.
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.
