The The Fault Assistance Centre team consists of former utility engineers with expertise in fault location. This experience, coupled with advanced SELF tools, enables the provision of a unique service.
The service is tailored for each utility allowing seamless integration with their existing processes.
How it works
Following equipment installation, each transient fault is assisted by the The Fault Assistance Centre.
Cable routes are identified from GIS and utility records. The activity is monitored and analysed until sufficient information is available to enable a location to be provided. Reports are provided to the utility to locate, manage and repair faults before they become permanent. This provides true active management of transient faults.
The distribution of fault location equipment is maximised by monitoring the activity of faults and moving assets to where they are needed most when older faults become dormant.
Our Fault staff have a wealth of utility experience, either working in or with the electricity supply industry.
