Improving efficiency and maintaining reliability

Decarbonization by Electrification

Electrification of facilities is a sustainable alternative for decarbonizing assets as policies and regulations raise the cost of emissions.

Power System Analysis Using ETAP or SKM

  • Load flow and short circuit
  • Motor starting
  • Arc flash
  • Protective relaying and coordination
  • Harmonic analysis

Potential Avenues for Electrification

  • Replace turbines (gas or steam) prime movers with motors
  • Replace steam tracing with electric heat tracing (EHT)
  • Using variable frequency drives (VFDs)
  • Battery storage systems and micro grids
  • HV substation with (n-1) design philosophy
  • Replace existing plant transport fleet with electric vehicles


  • Improves operability, reliability, and efficiency
  • Improves work environments
  • More up-time leading to increase in revenue
  • Reduced maintenance and OPEX costs
  • Reduced vibration
  • Less noise
  • Fewer sources of ignition
  • Added plant safety
