When problems arise at a power plant, you can’t just shut down and go home. If a generating unit goes down unexpectedly, power must be purchased from the grid to supply hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses that depend on a reliable energy source.

Instead of selling power, you are suddenly spending money to buy power.

A nuclear power plant called us one Friday evening. They needed to repair a special strainer before the plant could start back up. Cost was not an issue, since they were losing thousands of dollars every hour. We located the strainer manufacturing plant manager at home and he agreed to help us out.

The power plant chartered a plane to fly the strainer to the manufacturer. We arranged for the plant manager to meet the plane at the airport and take the strainer to the plant for repair. He returned it to the waiting plane several hours later and the strainer was installed by Sunday evening.

At Vertz, we know that keeping our customers on line and in operation is our most important job.
