EA Technology’s new Houston office targets petrochemsElectrical power engineering specialist EA Technology has opened a central regional office in Houston, Texas, to provide petrochemical and industrial companies with its award winning range of non-intrusive condition assessment products and services.With its North American headquarters based in Florida, EA Technology has been working with the international power industry since 1966 to identify the risk of failure of MV assets on their networks and reduce outages.
EA Technology USA President Don Genutis said: “Petrochem companies operate significant power networks, so they face many of the challenges of the electricity industry itself, plus some of their own. What they have in common is that power asset failures can cost millions in lost production – but most are predictable and preventable, using the right techniques."
“The products and services we are providing out of Houston are proven to save money in the power industry. Now we want to make them more widely available in petrochems.”
EA Technology’s core products include UltraTEV instruments, which use ultrasonic and Transient Earth Voltage (TEV) sensors to measure partial discharge activity in live plant. This enables operators to gain an accurate picture of the condition of their electrical assets and those which are at risk of failure, without having to de-energize them.
Based in the UK, the EA Technology Group has seven offices and 42 distributors worldwide. It significantly increased its presence in North America with the acquisition of No Outage Electrical Testing Inc. of Florida and Oregon in 2010. It is currently developing a network of distribution partners across the USA and Canada.
