Kinectrics Meets Outage Support Challenge for US Customer

May 19, 2016

Kinectrics' customer in the United States was faced with an unscheduled outage to replace several fuses that had suddenly failed at the same time in the field.

Personnel from Kinectrics USA Office, based in Cincinnati, Ohio immediately began working with the customer to define the utility’s technical requirements and provide full 24/7 support.

The expedited work was coordinated and scheduled among four (4) departments within Kinectrics to receive, test, dedicate, and ship qualified fuses to support the client’s outage.  The Kinectrics’ team, led by a world-renowned fuse failure expert on staff, was able to successfully execute a full Commercial Grade Dedication program in less than 48 hours. The dedication work included comprehensive testing in Kinectrics’ high voltage / high current labs to prove acceptability of the replacement units.
 
As a result, the client received high quality fuses delivered on time and on budget, which also met strict industry requirements under the 10 CFR Appendix B Quality Assurance Program.
