NETA Welcomes New Accredited Company — Blue Runner Switchgear Testing

NETA World StaffNETA News, Spring 2022 NETA News

Blue Runner Switchgear is a full-service electrical testing company located in Destin, Florida. We offer a full line of electrical testing and switchgear preventive maintenance services for a variety of industries, including industrial, medical, utilities, and commercial centers across Florida, Alabama, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

One of the most overlooked areas in equipment reliability programs is the electrical system that supplies power to production equipment. A faulty electrical system can put an entire plant out of operation, yet it gets less attention than individual production equipment. A safe workplace depends on properly maintained equipment, and an effective electrical preventive maintenance program that includes regularly scheduled maintenance and testing reduces the probability of an unscheduled outage and can save significant headaches and money. Our expert services include arc-flash assessment; low- and medium-voltage switchgear; oil and dry transformers; vacuum, SF6, and oil breakers; testing and predictive maintenance; high/low-voltage cable testing; and insulating fluid analysis.

Blue Runner Switchgear also offers FLIR thermal imaging services. Our technicians can save significant money by identifying problem areas before they result in lost production or damage to equipment.

OSHA and the NFPA recognize that a safe work place depends on properly maintained equipment. Regularly scheduled maintenance and testing reduces the probability of an unscheduled outage and can save you significant headaches and money.

To help customers comply with NFPA safety training requirements, Blue Runner offers classroom and/or on-the-job training and can help write an electrical safety program(ESP) or audit an existing program. We make it our business to stay up-to-date on all of the safety regulations, best practices, and industry regulations, so you don’t have to.

Blue Runner Power System Engineer Chris Neitzel says, “We are proud to be fully accredited NETA company and look forward to being an active participant in the association.”

“NETA welcomes Blue Runner Switchgear Testing as a NETA Accredited Company,” says Eric Beckman, PE, President of National Field Services Inc. and current NETA President. “NETA Accredited Companies help advance the electrical power systems industry and ensure the safety and reliability of the electrical power system. Achieving NETA accreditation requires dedication and persistence, and we congratulate them on achieving this milestone event.”
