Power Distribution Design
Whether you are building a new facility or reworking your production lines, we can help design new electrical infrastructure equipment (unit substations, switchgear, MCCs, panelboard) and the distribution schema that will power your facility now and into the future.
On Machine/ Process Electrical Design
Installing new process equipment is a labor-intensive effort, and having a well-engineered electrical installation package can save time and money while increasing production efficiency. We work with other engineering disciplines to generate an electrical contractor installation package that can be used to get an accurate installation cost, scope, and schedule.
Relaying and Protection
The most important role of protective relaying is to protect individuals first and equipment second. Excel’s dedicated and experienced team provides onsite relaying and protection services to ensure any defective lines or systems are detected and any would-be threats are mitigated before they occur.
Unit Substation Design
Excel provides clients with expertise in both primary and secondary unit substation design, working within your facility to ensure utility distribution voltages are properly stepped down to meet the needs of your operating conditions.
Once the design is complete, the project is not done. We work with electrical contractors to answer questions, perform quality assessments, and ensure the project is installed to specification.
Lighting design is critical for facility safety and personal performance, and lighting the wrong space at the wrong time wastes energy and increases your overhead. We can create a turnkey lighting solution design to meet the needs of both industrial and commercial applications.
What happens to your manufacturing process when the power goes out? Could you have a runaway chemical reaction or a build-up of explosive gas? Having a correctly designed emergency power system can pay serious dividends for operations and safety. We have designed and specified hundreds of emergency power systems to meet all sorts of applications. Working with Excel will get you the power you need when you need it.
Power System Studies
Our team of engineers can perform a comprehensive arc flash analysis and provide facility owners with the information necessary for employees to work safely on electrical equipment while remaining OSHA- and NFPA-compliant. Based on the results of the arc flash study, we provide custom arc flash labels for your equipment, updated electrical drawings, and a full report including analysis and recommendations to reduce and/or properly address arc flash hazards.
NFPA 70E Training
Safe work practices, hazard identification, and PPE selection that affect the employee will be covered, as well as documentation and compliance concerns that affect the employer. We specialize in tailoring the information presented in this course to your specific needs, tasks, and equipment.
All electrical equipment in your facilities must be approved, identified, listed, or labeled by an OSHA-accredited nationally recognized testing laboratory (NRTL) – or you could be at risk of costly fines and delays. Excel provides expert-led NRTL field evaluations to ensure your sites are compliant today and safe and productive in the long term.
