Energy and utility

Protect your new power sources

The energy and utilities sector is changing everyday. New and renewable power sources are becoming
a part of the landscape across Canada.

There are many uses for predictive maintenance and non-destructive testing in the energy sector.

IRIS has worked with utility companies over the years to inspect high voltage lines, distribution systems, substations and transformers and our services continue to evolve with technology and the needs of our customers. Our technicians are prepared to provide:

  • Infrared thermography service
  • Vibration and ultrasound analysis
  • Oil and fluids analysis
  • Other predictive maintenance procedures needed to help keep new power sources running smoothly and meeting or surpassing their life expectancy

With renewable energy sources like wind turbines and solar panel plants, and the enormous level of investment into these technologies, predictive maintenance makes more sense than ever.

Predictive maintenance in action

Wind turbines are notorious for gearbox failures. A combination of infrared thermography, and vibration analysis can help the operating engineers to predict component failures in the gear boxes as well as monitoring the condition of the composite wind turbine blades.

As ESA registered electrical consultants and roofing system experts, it is a natural progression for IRIS to offer operation and maintenance services to the solar energy industry.

Predictive maintenance technologies are used to inspect the electrical distribution system for signs of wear, or unbalanced loads, pv cells for damage or inefficiency and in wind turbines, gear boxes, rotating equipment and even the blades themselves.
