SE Energy, a specialty electrical construction, engineering and consulting firm, announced that it has entered a strategic partnership with TE Connectivity (TE), a leader in connectivity and sensors, to provide a cutting-edge non-segregated bus preventative maintenance service. SE Energy will use their new state-of-the-art maintenance and installation process and combine it with TE’s Raychem BP tubing to deliver a much needed service to the industry.
“Far too often, standard plant maintenance is done without the proper expertise and experience, limiting its effectiveness,” said Randy Jansen, President of SE Energy. “SE Energy’s process cuts shrink time in half and reduces the overall installation time. TE’s Raychem products have been synonymous with reliability in extreme environments and conditions, especially when being used to repair already damaged bus systems. We believe that the partnership between SE Energy and TE Connectivity will be one that will allow for faster installation with an excellent product.”
This partnership has been formed to tackle the common issue of polyphenylene oxide (PPO) insulation being used in non-segregated bus duct by nearly all manufacturers for the last 30-40 years. By using Raychem brand products, SE Energy will be installing a product that is known for its reliability and dependable material to reduce the possibility of cracking or degrading over time. The need for a reliable and dependable bus system is particularly important within power plants, where routine or preventative maintenance rarely occurs.
