PROACTIVE INFRARED STUDY HELPS PREVENT POWER OUTAGES

07/24/2017 ~ The Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company, an insurer for Keys Energy Services (KEYS), recently identified two heat anomalies, or “hot spots”, within KEYS’ ten electrical substations which could have resulted in power outages if left uncorrected. KEYS performs an infrared study of its substations every year.

During the study, a special infrared camera is used to detect the anomalies, which are a red flag for possible future equipment failure. KEYS’ Transmission & Distribution department will address all “hot spots” and prioritize repairs accordingly.

“Knowing that a component may fail gives us the opportunity to complete corrective maintenance to achieve the highest reliability possible,” said Lynne Tejeda, KEYS’ General Manager & CEO.
